Reinforce your child’s foundational math skills while creating small works of seasonal art with this creative Halloween rock painting activity! First, let your kids get creative—and maybe even a little messy!—as they use paint, glitter, googly eyes, and more to turn regular rocks into pumpkins, spiders, ghosts, and other Halloween creatures. When they’re done creating and the rocks are dry, have your child count, sort, or make patterns using their creations. This fun arts and crafts activity is designed for kindergarteners through third graders and can be used at any time of year by simply changing the theme to fit the season or holiday.
