Today on the blog we are sharing a fantastic Kids fruit activity idea for creating stone fruit for the garden mud kitchen. This was a fantastic idea from my 9-year-old daughter and was really fun to create.

How To Make Mud Kitchen Painted Rocks
We discussed which fruits to draw and create and got to work making some lovely fruit templates.
Sylvia and I worked together as a team drawing and colouring in the different stones.
We made a watermelon, banana, grapes and much more.
We threw in some vegetables to make a good mix.
Sylvia made a carrot and a aubergine known as an egg plant here in the UK.
Making fruit and vegetable stones was a fun thing to do especially as we were making them as a gift for a child’s garden Mud kitchen.
Drawing and creating arty things is a great way to help a child to develop fine motor skills as well as confidence and self belief.
Sylvia was a little unsure if she could draw on the stones but after completing the first one and with lots of praise she soon got the hang of it.
The best part was placing the black pips on the watermelon and strawberries. Sylvia enjoyed herself and so did I.
This was a fun task and didn’t take too long.
We are so excited to give these stones to our friend’s child as a gift for summer time garden fun.
Sylvia did a fantastic job and I could not be more proud of her creations.
I think drawing on stones or creating story stones can be a fun activity.
It’s not about the end product it’s about the process and the fun you have and my daughter had a lot of fun.
Which fruit or veg do you like the most?
I love the carrot.
