Rock Box

Rock Box

My two-year-old loves to collect rocks. He finds them just about everywhere we go and must bring them home. I decided he needed a place for all of these treasured rocks and together we made a special box to keep his most precious stones in.

Ages:
2 - 7
Est. Time:
<30 mins

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. wood box
  2. tacky glue
  3. paint
  4. paintbrush
  1. I grabbed some paints, glue and a box...and Grayson went to find a few of his favorite rocks to decorate the box with.

  2. He told me where to put the glue so he could add the rocks to the top of the box. We let this dry for a couple of hours.

  3. Once the glue was set, Grayson picked purple and silver paint to paint his box with. He loved the idea of painting the rocks.

  4. When the paint was dry the box was ready to store his little rock collection. He took much pride in this little box.
