Have you heard of the rock phenomenon? And I don’t mean the movie “The Rock” or Dwayne Johnson (aka The Rock). I’m talking about the new family fun activity taking the world by storm. Ok maybe not the world, and not even sure where in the US people are rockin’, but we are in full force rock mode here in Florida.
So how do you Rock?
It is simple, you grab your family, paints, and rocks. You paint. You hide. You find. You Post.
To explain a little more…We belong to the PBC Rocks Facebook Group the first step in rockin’ is to acquire rocks. Whether you find them on the beach or purchase them at your local store or online you first need rocks. Then you need supplies to paint your rock. It is highly recommended to use either acrylic paint or paint pens (Posca is the best). You paint your rocks however you see fit.
Our first set of rocks we painted
There is no right or wrong way to paint rocks. You simply paint what you. Once you have painted the rocks it is best to give the finder information on the back of the rock. In our case since we are in Palm Beach County we ask people when they find a rock to post a photo on the facebook group. We put “PBC Rocks Facebook Group” on the back of ours. Then you hide the rocks around town.
If you want you can then post on your facebook group hits to where you have hid your rocks. Hopefully someone will find them and post a photo and re-hide them. It is fun to see where your rocks end up and who finds rocks you have left. The key is while you are out and about your town to look for rocks. You will have a blast painting, finding, and hiding rocks.
We recently vacationed in Virginia and brought a whole bowl of rocks with us to hide all over town. We even found a rock while we were there and found that they too have their own facebook group. If this fun activity is not in your area it is worth trying to get started. It has been come the “thing to do” here in Palm Beach County and we love participating. It is an easy and fun family activity. Children and adults alike love to join in.
