Members of my community have joined a “rocking” craze. People are painting and hiding rocks all over towns for enthusiasts to find.
We took our grandchildren on a rock hunt yesterday and below are just a few of the rocks that they found.
We also painted a few of our own rocks that we will add to this stash and rehide.
My granddaughter wants to keep the longer rock that reads, “Hello, Gorgeous you found a rock!”
She found it in a large urn in a local park and came running over laughing and breathless.
“Mimi, look what I found.”
Below are some more rocks that they found.
This craze in my own community caused me to research how the idea began.
I could not find a starting point for the craze, but in searching I found that it literally is a national phenomena. Art groups, parents, and children of all ages are painting colorful rocks and then “rocking” a community park or area for others to find.
Many Facebook groups are also forming to fire up participation. Here is a link to just a few of the ones I found.
I also discovered these guides online that provide resources if you want to get involved in the “rocking” craze:
- Rock Painting Guide
- Montana Happy: Rock Painting Ideas How to Get Started
- Just a Little Creativity: Painted Rocks- the Creative Project Sweeping the Nation
- Rock Painting Activities – Homeschooling Curriculum Ideas

My Favorite Post of the Week
As a mother of a teen, this post resonated with me this week. My favorite quote:
I must end my own selfishness and unrealistic expectations
to disciple them, guide them, lead them.
This post is short, but deep in content and I highly recommend it this week.
