Father's Day Rock ArtGreet your fathers with a piece of unique rock art. One thing that I like about this craft is that when you talk about rock, it means less expense. Plus, borrow your kids' school stuff and just be resourceful. Let them join the fun!



  • 1 large rock
  • 2 small oval shaped rocks
  • art paper clippings
  • scissors
  • hot glue
  • white glue
  • paint brush
