Rocks to Gems
Activity DesignerMelissa Allen
My children have been into pirates lately and seem to always be discovering treasures. Since we have more rock collections in this house than we can count, I thought it would be fun to turn a few into some real treasures!
What You'll Need
How We Did It
Straight-edged rocks work best for this--they give it a real jewel look. I can easily find rocks of this sort in my kids pockets, closets, on their bookshelves...you get the point.
We pulled out a few metallic and pearlized paints. My children were pretty excited since these are my paints.
