Our family watched Banksy’s “Exit Through the Giftshop” together, and my 10-year-old daughter adamantly declared she wanted to be a street artist. I didn’t dig the idea of vandalism, but I also didn’t want to squash her excitement and creativity. So I picked up some rocks and together the family painted them with beastly faces and spread them around town.

We had so much fun, we did it again a few months later with painted sticks and then a third time with painted leaves.
