My Kids And I Spent A Year Painting Over 1,000 Rocks And Hid Them For People To Spot And Photograph

A few months ago I shared some of the Family Friendly Street Art my kids and I make – painting rocks or sticks or leaves and hiding them around town to bring a smile to passers-by. This year we decided to massively expand the idea and take it to Grand Rapids MI during the world’s largest ArtPrize.

In the past, my three oldest kids and I would paint around 40 objects to hide in town. But this time around, all six of my kids and I spent a year painting over 1,000 rocks! We painted all of them in matching pairs. Half of them are gathered together for display at the Children’s Museum so visitors can grasp the scope of it all. The other matching half are tucked around town in random places for families to spot and photograph. It’s like a giant game of I-Spy… or a real-life version of Pokemon GO!

This truly looks compelling way to connect with your child. It is also a great way to soak in creativity without boundaries. I really love this idea!!
