Painted rocks




My grandson and I found these painted rocks at the park near my house. They were painted and hidden by members of a local group called Tallahassee Rocks which is similar to The Kindness Rocks Project. Basically it is a fun activity which involves painting and decorating your rocks, hiding them and then looking for rocks that have been hidden by others. People post pictures of the rocks they are hiding or rocks they have found on the Facebook page and then rehide the rocks for someone else to find. They can be decorated any way you want and some are fancy or contain inspirational messages on them. My grandson gets really excited whenever he finds a new rock. We haven't painted any of our own yet, but we might get started soon. Apparently these groups are springing up in cities all over the place, so there could be one where you live.

Linking to Our World Tuesday.

Hello, the rocks are cool. There is a group called Lakeland Rocks too, we found one in a local park while we were there. It is fun looking for them!
Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day!

sounds like fun looking for rocks, I have a friend who collect rocks of all kinds, none painted though. she picks up a rock where ever she goes and takes it home to put in her yard

How fun to find them Lois ☺ I've had two painted rocks for many years, one is painted with a Beagle face the other covered in flowers, I use them as doorstops ☺

Well, if there are any around here I'm first going to have my head examined as I've been told by a number of people, including teachers and preachers, that I had rocks in my head! :)

Very cool. I have a face of a cat on a rock that I had since 1978. I got it at a cat show.

I like to gather and paint rocks with our granddaughter and had no idea it was a "thing" and that people hid them for each other! that is so cool!

That sounds like a fun activity -- especially with kids.
