Today on the blog we are sharing our Rock Stones Monster Craft for kids. This is an easy and simple craft for kids and can be a lot of fun. It’s perfect for Halloween or for any time of the year you fancy really. I totally recommend using plenty of different colours for this craft and giving the monsters different expressions. These can be used in the garden or in the home and look quite cute. So here is the tutorial.

Rock Monsters

Step 1: Clean your rocks to remove dust and dirt. Once your rocks are dry, paint them with various colours of acrylic paint. I found that holding the bottom of the rock worked well. I waited for the paint to dry on one end and then painted the rest. Don’t forget to flip your rock over and paint the back! Most of the rocks needed a few coats of paint. You can use a hair dryer to speed up the drying process if you wish.

Step 2: Use black paint and a small paintbrush to paint small mouth shapes onto your rock. Let the paint dry.

Step 3: Use a small brush and paint white teeth and red tongues inside your monsters mouths.

Step 4: Glue on googly eyes. If you’re using a strong glue such as E6000, an adult will need to do this step. The stronger glue will hold up to the elements much better than a white school glue. If you won’t be hiding your rocks, school glue would be fine. You could also personalise these as you’d like. Try adding bows for girl rock monsters or yarn hair. The possibilities are endless!

Step 5: Enjoy a fun day outside hiding your rocks at a park. The kids who find your rocks are going to be super excited!
