Rock Drawing With Lucy

This past Sunday was an absolutely beautiful day. For me it was my favorite kind of day. Sunny, not to hot, not to cold and early enough in the season that things aren’t swarming with bugs. So I was able to relax in the outdoors. Genevieve and Lucy enjoyed playing on our swing set and treehouse for a time. Then Genevieve went to dig in the dirt and Lucy and I went to our patio to enjoy our newly found creative activity. Rock Drawing!

Rock Drawing you ask? Yes, Rock Drawing, it was a fun creation we came up with a couple of months ago. The kids collect rocks from our yard and then haul them to our patio table. Then we get our chalk and start drawing on our newly found rocks. It’s a great way to give the kids (or more honestly myself) a break from all the running around outside. And a fun alternative to drawing on paper. And the best part is you can just leave the rocks out and reuse them again next time your outside. If it rains, all the better, you have a clean slate.

I would love to hear what fun games or activities you have created for enjoying the outdoors? Please share below! Till next time…
