20 Rockin’ Rock Crafts for Kids

| |

Ella is an insatiable crafter, so I am always in search of fun kids’ craft ideas that are budget-friendly and feasible for a 4 year old. Since we have an endless supply of rocks, I collected these rock crafts for kids ideas from around the web to share with you!

20 Rockin Rock Crafts for Kids - everything from beautiful decor idea for homemade gifts, to rock games and rocks reimagined for pretend play. An endless craft supply - rocks are the perfect free craft supply!

The nice thing about the rock crafts is that they can be done outside – just bring the craft supplies outside with you, go on a scavenger hunt for the rocks (or any other natural craft supplies you may need), and set up on a picnic table or a tarp/flattened cardboard box on the grass.

While some of these rock crafts are decorative (and great for gift-giving), some of them can then be used for games or pretend play! I love when children can get real use out of crafts that they’ve made (or eat food that they’ve made) – it allows them to feel continued pride in their work, while allowing them to think creatively to solve any flaws in their original designs.
