Mom Approved – Halloween Rock Painting Ideas that your kids will love!

It has always been a fun holiday for me growing up and even better now with my kids. The fall season is probably my most creative time for the whole year and this year my family has helped me with a lot of rock painting projects. They love hiding our painted rocks around town and finding new ones along the way.

Rock Painting is a fun family activity that everyone can do, albeit, a little messy sometimes, but hey life is messy and at least clean-up is easy!

This haunting season would be a perfect time to attend a Halloween rock painting party to get you into the festive spirit. Check your local Facebook group for any events planned for rock painting parties. These gatherings bring people together to spend time with old friends and make new ones while getting your creative “fix” on! Being creative and artistic can actually improve your state of mind, and reduces stress which can open yourself up to make connections with others. My post,  How to Paint Rocks – Beginners Guide will highlight the health benefits of this wonderful activity.

Halloween Frankenstein Painted Rock

We used two coats of green paint and then using a Pigma Micron .25 mm black pen and a Uni Posca white paint pen to draw the face.  Then used a black paint pen for the hair. It’s my son’s favorite rock.
