Saint Patricks Day Leprechaun Rock Painting
Today I’m sharing a fun kids activity which is Saint Patricks Day Rock Painting. We have painted a Leprechaun, a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and a shamrock stone. It was fun making these stones and this is a great arts and craft activity for the kids.

How to Paint a Leprachaun Rock Stone
At the moment I have been struggling to find smooth stones which means my pencil can get blunt pretty fast so I had my pencil sharpener handy and I needed to use it a few times.
This part of the stone was particularly bumpy and made the paint splatter quite a bit so I had to dot he feet extra carefully.
I was super pleased with the end result.
I am really enjoying painting rock stones and it’s a great activity to do with my daughter as she enjoys it too.
Why not try painting your own Leprechaun and Saint Patricks Day Rock Stones. I’d love to see them.
