On a particularly nice day recently, we decided to tackle one of the items on our summer bucket list, painting rocks. We set up outside and spent a lovely afternoon creating.
Since our rocks were just laying about our yard, they were quite dirty. So, I filled a plastic bin with soap and water. The girls started washing... and washing. After I was beginning to wonder if we were going to forgo the painting for washing rocks, the girls decided their rocks were clean enough to paint.
So we painted. We each took a pile of rocks (even me) and started painting. There were no directions or rules to this activity. We just painted. We talked and we painted. We enjoyed the summer sounds all around and we painted. We painted the day away.
Some of us (AJ) decided that their rocks should be all the same color. Others went for stripes, polka dots, and even rainbows. In the end, we had a very colorful pile of rocks.
We spent a lovely afternoon painting outside. It was relaxing, creative and we enjoyed each other's company immensely. I'm so glad we added this to our summer bucket list!
Did you make a summer bucket list? How many things have you crossed off the list so far?
