Rock Painting Guide presents: Mom Approved – Christmas Rock Painting Crafts that your kids will love!
Winter Break is just around the corner so keeping your little ones busy can be challenging at times. If you have read my posts in the past, you will know that I like double duty crafts. These Christmas rock painting crafts can be a handmade keepsake gift for someone special in your child’s life. Rock Painting has become a popular hobby across America, and it’s perfect for all ages.
Here’s a supply list for these Christmas Rock Painting Crafts:
Candy Cane Rock Painting
This was a fun craft that we tried to fingerpaint but the rock we used wasn’t quite large enough, so we used Q-Tips to make the red and white dots with acrylic paint.
Christmas Wreath Rock Painting
Use two shades of green paint, and have your child make a circle while alternating the shades using their thumbprints. Then use the top of a paintbrush handle and dot the wreath with red paint to make the holly berries. We used a red Uni-Posca marker to write “Merry Christmas”.
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Rock Painting
This one was a fan favorite for my kiddos! It’s an easy fun craft that your kids will love to do. Simply, have them press their thumbs in the brown acrylic paint and press down on the rock. Let it dry, then paint the antlers and design the face however you want!
Angel Rock Painting
This cute thumbprint rock painting craft is perfect for those itty-bitty rocks that you have no idea what to do with! Choose a color for the body and wings. Dip their thumb in the paint and press down on the rock to make the body and then again on the left and right of the body to make the wings. Have your child dip their pointer finger in brownish paint to make the head and press down right above the body. Draw little halos above their head. Add some eyes and a mouth so it looks like the angels are singing.
Elf Rock Painting
Dip their thumbs in green paint and press it down on a rock. Then have them dip their pointer finger in a brownish color for the head. Let the paint dry and then use we used a black uni-posca paint pen to draw the face, arms, and legs. Don’t forget to add the Elf hat and decorate by adding clothes and buttons!
Gingerbread Man Rock Painting
This gingerbread man is too cute to eat! Make a brown thumbprint on your rock then use the pointer finger to make the head and limbs. Drag the finger out to make the limbs appear longer. Have fun decorating your little gingerbread man!
Don’t stop here, try making Christmas trees, Christmas Lights, Stockings, Santa Claus, Frosty and more!
May your heart and home be filled with all of the joys the season brings. Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!
