Rainbow rocks are such a cute way to get ready for Spring, and get excited about the many colors in our world! It’s a great way to show kids how God is our rock too!
This Rainbow Rock for kids so simple but so fun! The kids loved getting outside even though it was pretty cold. Still, they loved seeing all of the colors come to life on their Rainbow Rocks.
Ages: Fun for all ages, my twin girls are 4 and my son is 2. This is one of the Kids Activities we use for teaching them Preschool at Home. “Add More Learning” below shows you how you can integrate all subjects into one simple kids activity!
Materials for Rainbow Rock Spring Craft for Kids:
Some paint containers or a plate for the paint (we used cupcake leftover cartons)
permanent marker or paint pen to write a message on the rock
A verse from the bible about God being our rock or our strength. We found a nice site with bible verses and bible stories for kids about God’s strength on Jelly Telly Phillipians 4:13 ” I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.”
Instructions for Rainbow Rocks Spring Craft for Kids:
First, I put out paint in the colors of the rainbow in the cupcake carton. I put their rock on the cupcake carton.
Next, they came over and painted their rocks.
They loved swirling the paint around and seeing the different colors.
Then, we let them dry over night.
If you wanted to transform them into God rocks, you could add a verse or just “God is my rock” for motivation for your kids or even for you mom!
If you wanted to keep them in the yard, the paint will wash off over time, but you can have fun and re-use and re-paint them later.
There, you go! You could use them as paper weights, decor in mommy’s office.
You could even put them in your community for someone to find and be reminded that God is their rock!
Add more Learning Fun:
Science and Colors: What makes up a rock, what are they used for, how do the colors change as you mix them, you could talk about how they are similar or different than dinosaur eggs.
Math: You could put the rocks in order, who’s rock is biggest to smallest?, how much do the rocks weigh?
Reading and writing: you could add a nice message on the rocks and leave them somewhere fun in the community
Social Skills: you could inspire others in the community by placing the rock somewhere in town for people to find.
Faith: You could add a verse about God’s strength and how he protects you and keeps you strong…”God is your rock”.
