Items Needed for Father’s Day Craft
How to Make Father’s Day Rock Painting Craft
1. Gather rocks for the Father’s Day craft. This is a great opportunity to go on a nature walk to find rocks.
2. Clean the rocks so the paint will stick better.
3. Choose a design or color and paint the rocks.
4. Let the rocks dry.
5. Once dry, add words describing Dad, the word Dad, or leave it as is with a picture painted on the rock. If you choose to write on the rock, a permanent marker is a bit easier to write with than paint.
6. Let the words dry.
7. Be sure to sign your name on the bottom of the rock and the year.
8. Give your Father’s Day craft to Dad.
If you are putting the rock outside, you may want to seal the rock with waterproofing spray.
Things to Add to Your Father’s Day Craft
Write a Poem on Your Rock
After painting the rock, write an acrostic poem using the letters from Dad.
Then, write the poem on the rock using a permanent marker.
Make a Scene
Use multiple rocks and paint them to create a science. For example, one rock could be painted to look like Dad.
Another rock could be painted to look like you.
Finally, paint a third rock to be something you enjoy doing with Dad (a football if you like playing football with him, a book if you enjoy reading together, etc.).
Draw a Favorite Team Logo
Paint Dad’s favorite sports team’s logo on the rock.
Make Dad’s rock shimmer and shine by adding glitter while the paint is still wet.
Don’t like the glitter mess?
There is paint with glitter in it that can be used for less mess and a more straightforward application to the rock.
Use the Rocks as Part of a Bigger Image
Paint your face on one rock and Dad’s face on a second rock.
Place the rocks on top of a sheet of paper and finish drawing your bodies on the paper.
Glue the rocks down so they stay in place.
Think of a favorite memory with Dad from the past year.
Then, paint this memory (or something to symbolize this memory) on the rock.
