Brr! We’re stuck indoors on another snowy no-school day. What do to?! As a busy mom, I appreciate FREE resources like the Dollar Tree’s Value Seekers Club for simple projects that fit my budget, fun for both me and the kids. These Decorative Painted Rocks were easy to make, and my girls loved painting one of their favorite animals—penguins!
Rather than search outdoors for the perfect smooth rocks, I just visited my local Dollar Tree to pick up a bag of River Rocks. They come in two different tones, so I went with the darker ones to make painting penguins even easier. While you’re at Dollar Tree, you’ll find a great variety of supplies in the craft aisle.
Supplies you’ll need:
- River Rocks
- Paint brushes
- Spray sealer
You’ll find this project at Dollar Tree's Value Seekers Club, with some very cute seasonal options that would look great in a bowl or vase as a centerpiece. We made penguins instead, since that’s the theme of a playdate we’re hosting later this month. If you’re planning to reuse your rocks each year as seasonal décor, you may want to spray them with a sealer, especially since they’ll knock against each other.
Browse this project and more crafts, recipes, décor, and frugal fun ideas that change monthly. The online project sheets can be saved or printed, making it easy to carry to the store as a shopping list.
