Alphabet Rocks

 We wanted to think outside the blocks and made the alphabet rock!

  • 26 smooth flat stones
  • Crayons
  • Baking sheet
  • Modge podge

Warm rocks in even, so that crayons will melt when drawing on them.  We put our rocks on a cookie sheet in a 200 degree oven for 3 minutes. 

Draw your letter onto the rock using a crayon. Be careful the rocks could be hot!  

Allow wax to dry then paint over the wax letter and the rock with Modge Podge. Allow Modge Podge to dry and  you have alphabet rocks!

Note: We noticed that the bright colors show the best. Crayons with sparkles in them make a neat effect.

Some other ideas:

Write quotes on larger stones.

If you would like to use the rocks for spelling activities then make 2-3 sets.

Write wishes on the rocks and collect them in a jar.

Write ideas for rainy days on rocks. When it rains allow the child to pick a rock.

Use the rocks as an advent calender for Christmas.

Write numbers on the rocks.

Use the rocks in your garden to mark what you've planted.
