Rocks are a cheap and easy craft medium. Unfortunately, I do not live near any rivers, so I was forced to pilfer smooth rocks from along back roads and random parking lots. Prepping the craft took some time, because I had to add three layers of white primer, and two layers of base color. Basically, all my tweens/teens had to do was add features and details. It never occurred to me to tell them to apply paint sparingly using even strokes. I should have warned my attendees against globing layers of paint onto their rocks. It took awhile for the paint to dry…even with the help of a blow dryer. Lesson learned. FYI: The Despicable Me Minions went over like gangbusters!
