Friday I decided to make Rock Monsters with Oscar. The project filled the better part of the day and became slightly addictive. Oscar’s rocks can be seen here – They weren’t available for the photograph above above as Oscar had since hidden the rocks throughout our house. (I found one in my closet this morning)I took Oscar to Lowes and we picked up some paint sample pots ($5.00) in colours we wanted*. You can use more child friendly paint – but I wanted the coverage that the wall paint would give.  We were using it in such small amounts that for this project it worked for us. I really don’t think you need any instructions other than the encouragement to do it. It’s fun – has a lot of different steps makes it a day long project with your little one (going to find rocks, washing them, painting them, picking how many eyes and teeth they should have) Plus – they end up being ridiculously cute.

*Have you seen these Pantone paint chips? They are gorgeous!


Body: Paint 1 colour, let it dry (maybe an hour) and then paint a second colour should you wish
Eyes: I used a black sharpie for the eyes.  Oscar used googly eyes. 
Mouth: Black Paint
Teeth: Once the mouth has dried, I used white paint for the teeth
Inspiration: Pinterest
