Rock Painting...ages 4 and up (Yes...Derek is only 3....big mistake)

A very cool activity that Derek and I saw in a magazine...He was really excited to make them... You find some good rocks, wash them and bake them at 250 degrees for 20 min. The rocks are hot, and then you melt crayons on them by just touching the crayons to the rocks. The rocks look like jewels when they are done...

The only problem is that the rocks are HOT..."make sure you don't touch the rocks Derek, they are really hot!"
Not hot enough to leave blisters at least...Poor Derek. Lucky for him you only need one hand to finish the project.

What a cool idea! but I'm sure his little hand really hurt after touching that hot rock. Still your a good mom to always try new, fun things with your kids.
