Are your kids excited for summer? We’re enjoying lots of outdoor playtime which includes hiking and nature walks as often as we can. The kids love scavenging for cool finds we can take home and turn into something fun – like rocks! All your need are some stones to magically turn into adorable pretend play toys for the kids. Like watermelon, fish, owls, candy, and ladybugs. You can even prevent the dreaded “summer slide” from happening by keeping up with your ABCs. Take a look at these playful rock crafts to make this summer. All part of a wonderful collaboration of #kidscraftstar bloggers for our June monthly challenge with was (you guessed it – rocks!).
