Hide A Rock

Free Custom Photo Calendars

First paint your rock, and then hide it for your friends. See who can find the others’ rock the fastest! Perfect for indoors or outside.

What You’ll Need:
*Rocks
*Paint
*Paintbrush

Preparation:
*Wash and dry rocks to remove sand or dirt.

Activity:
*Paint your rocks. You can do any pattern or bright solid color, or turn them into little animals!
*Decide who is going first. The rest of the kids close their eyes. The first player hides their rock. The rest of the kids open their eyes and start looking. The first player tells them “warm, warmer, hot” etc. as they get closer to the rock and “cold, colder,” etc. as they get farther away from the rock. The player who finds the rock first gets to go next.
*Send us a picture of your kids and their painted rocks and we may post it to our site! info@mycalendarmaker.com.
