Easy Garden Crafts For The Whole Family

1. Rock painting is perfect for families with kids

Garden inspired painted rocks

Painting rocks is not only easy and fun, but you can do it with people of all ages.

Did you dig your garden and fond some rocks? Save them for a rainy day and pain them. No rocks in your garden? No problem (actually that’s a very good thing for any gardener): you can pick rocks from a walk in the park, from a walk by a river, etc.

You can use painted rocks to mark your veggie rows, but you can also just place them in your flower beds for added interest.

All you need are a few tubes of brightly colored acrylic paint, and maybe a few permanent markers. And remember to seal your creation to make it last longer (I heard that cement water sealer works well, or you can use outdoor mod-podge) . Have fun!
