hot rocks.

This was one of my summer of fun cards from last year
and it was eighteen 25 great idea…(one of many~)
I ran up to my mom’s house last week while my sister was in town to help her with her ispy quilt…
and I thought the kids needed a little entertaining so we could get some squares sewn…
you basically take rocks (which are free)
and bake them in your oven (also free) until HOT.
and then draw on them with crayons (and who doesn’t have crayons.?)
it’s one of those great crafts that you almost always have all the supplies on hand

SOME WISE ADVICE:
the rocks are hot. handle with care. (we pulled out an ice pack in case someone accidentally touched the rocks)
and the wax will get on whatever you have underneath it…so make sure rags are used.
and it involves some EXTREME concentration….
but it’s pretty freakin cool. my kids got in a fight if it was paint or crayons…..(cause whats an activity without a little sibling love)
and in truth…it’s actually a little bit of both!
and it dries all awesome.
we might have gone hot rocks crazy……
i told the kids we need to throw them in the driveway and then have a scavengar hunt for them…
i bet we could sew the whole quilt before they find them all! (insert evil laugh)
