One of the great things about living in the country is taking walks. Now that the temperatures aren't as blazing hot as they were this summer the walks are actually enjoyable. Our youngest loves to pick up rocks when we go on these walks, she always wants to bring them home and name them all "wwwrocky." It seems like she always loses the rock and then I have to search for it or find a replacement.
I saw this super cool craft from the ultimate crafter, Martha Stewart and love it. Rock Dominoes.
When we go on walks now we will have a reason to look for rocks. I also love that this will give us another family game to play and this one has can even teach numbers and math, bonus! To make your own set you need 28 flat, skinny rocks and a white paint pen (or white out pen). Black or any other color paint would be optional depended in how you want your rocks to look.
Draw a line through the center of each rock and then mark it with all number creations from 1-6 until you have a complete set. I think these would make a great gift or stocking stuffer too!
