Finding time to do crafts with the kids is something that has really gotten pushed to the side the last several (just being honest here) years.  There are a couple of reasons for that- 1. I just don’t have time, and I really try to extend myself a little bit of grace and acknowledge I can’t do everything. and 2. despite the fact I attempt to keep some art supplies set aside for the rare occasion I have time to do a craft with the kids, they always end up finding the stash.  When I do have time to do something, they’ve used up (destroyed) all of the supplies.  What many of you may not know about me is that I do actually enjoy being creative, and I did graduate with a bachelor’s degree in child development, and I worked in day care for years. Being crafty is sort of in my nature.  It really just doesn’t happen much anymore.  Anyhow, the whole point of that was—  when the mood strikes, and I actually do have some time to be crafty with the kids, it has to be something I don’t have to go out and buy supplies for, and I really do try to find something that doesn’t just got on the refrigerator. Enter- these fun rock crafts!  I mean, how hard is it to find some rocks, and we almost always have the other stuff lying around.
