Rock Crafts

Kids LOVE collecting rocks and from dominoes, games, little monsters and more, there are tons of cool crafts to make with rocks — plus many are educational to boot. Remember, rocks are only meant for kids old enough to know NOT to eat them. Please don’t give your young toddler or baby rocks to play with — and have your older kids keep rock-based toys in a safe place, out of reach from tiny, curious hands.
