DIY Rock Craft - 3 Handmade Projects to Try

Three inspiring DIY rock craft projects to try at home from simple to make fairy garden stones and farm animal story stones to the more challenging mix and match rock people. 

Rocks are such a great resource - cheap, easy to find and so tactile especially for small hands at play. I have made some story stones before, some pirate themed ones. Today I'm sharing three different rock projects you can make easily using only a few materials over a weekend. Perfect for pretend play, your children will love these handmade toys as much as mine do and the preschoolers I work with!
