Painted Rock Faces are a wonderful nature craft to do as we are nearing Earth Day!
We had so much fun making these painted rock faces- and they were so easy to make! We went outside and collected some mostly flat rocks. Then we washed them off and let them dry in the sunshine. We are lucky to live in a rocky area, so rocks are easy to come by. (Perks of living on a mountain!)
How to Make Painted Rock Faces:
Then we put out some newspaper and painted the rocks into faces. We used an acrylic paint to make them more durable.
For the eyes, try to find some that are similar sizes and make a pair of them. Make a variety of shapes, colors and expressions so that you can have lots of fun mixing them around.
When they are dry, start building faces with them. Use other parts of nature to make the hair and the heads. We really enjoyed assembling the faces and adding leaves or moss or twigs for hair.
Aren’t they adorable? I really love the way my kids painted these faces! You could glaze them to make them last a lot longer, too.
