**This was an adult project for us, use your own discretion if your child is ready or not**

  1. Wash and dry your river rocks prior to painting. We used a paper plate to add our paint for painting. Use one color as a time and rinse your brush between colors. Paint your desired fruit, veggie, or herb on your rock.Garden Markers (29)
  2. Add the name of your plant to the rock.Garden Markers (32)
