Here’s a good post-beach day craft with the kiddos, but be sure to be on the look-out for smooth rocks for painting.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

Smooth rocks

Paint brushes (in different sizes)

Acrylic paint (color of choice)

Optional: Mod Podge

DIRECTIONS

1. Rinse rocks thoroughly with water, let dry.

2. Cover workspace, and get painting — about 2 to 3 coats for a base.

3. Let dry completely, about 20 minutes.

Optional: When rocks fully dry, paint a layer of Mod Podge as a sealant.
