This idea is SO fun for the kids AND for the grown ups that are “helping”.

Just outline some hands on a stretch of cardboard, draw nails on them, and let the kids paint the fingernails – fun!

Paint Some Rocks

When I’m feeling stressed out or down in the dumps, I like to not only do some sort of craft project, but also create it for OTHER people to lift their spirits.

These types of painted rocks below fit both of those things – a fun and easy art project for the kids and I to do AND we scatter them around our neighborhood or local park for other people to find… and hopefully, it will lift their spirits when they find them.
