FREE FUN ALERT: Painted Rock Hunting





free fun, free activities, free kid activities, free family fun, free fun, summer fun, fall funUnless you have been living under a rock, you already know about free local Painted Rock Hunts. (Don’t you love my rock humor?)
 
Or maybe you don’t know anything about it at all. That was me a couple of weeks ago. I had never heard of such! But now I am addicted.

So here is the deal; you paint rocks and hide them, then you hunt rocks, post pic of them on your local Facebook rock group and rehide them. Then repeat! It’s that easy. You don’t even have to paint any yourself if you don’t want to. You can just hunt and rehide them. You can even keep some if you want to. My boys love it!

It is a lot of fun, and the best part is, it’s free! It makes for a great weekend activity, or even just a little added fun while out and about running errands!




Did I mention it keeps the kids busy? Our public library hosted a rock painting party that we attended and my boys had a great time. That was an hour and a half of free entertainment for my wild men!

So, here is the process from start to finish…

Rehide the rocks.

And you can even shamelessly promote your blog or business on them! 🙂 We have local businesses hiding them, and when you find their rocks, you get free stuff!

If you find yourself attached to a certain rock, you can even adopt it. Just make sure you tell the FB world that you did. I have to convince my boys to rehide almost all the rocks we find. They just love them all and want to keep them. What’s this Mama need with a bunch of painted rocks!? 😉

What about you, have you taken part in painted rock hunting? If not, you need to jump on in and enjoy the fun! Share your thoughts in the comments below.
