It’s our final episode! To celebrate, Kinsley and I decided to make something we could share with others. Using a time old classic – rock painting, Kinsley and I made little rock monsters for her to hide for her brothers. Hiding painted rocks is a fun way to surprise loved ones, and in Kinsley and her brothers’ case, a good source of entertainment. The following hours consisted of re-hiding and finding the rocks, over and over again – an unexpected but very welcomed response.

Rock Monsters


  • Rocks
  • Acrylic paint
  • Googly eyes (if you don’t have googly eyes, you can always just paint or draw on your eyes instead)
  • Hot glue
  • Sharpie


Step 1: Paint two layers of acrylic paint over your rock’s entire surface, allowing drying time between layers.
Step 2: Once completely dry, hot glue on your googly eyes.
Step 3: Take a Sharpie and draw on your faces. If you would like to add teeth, take white acrylic paint and dot in between your Sharpie lines.
Step 4: Allow the teeth to dry and then you’re done!

Lastly, thank you for watching Kinsley’s and my videos these past few weeks. We really enjoyed making them and appreciated all your kind words of support. Have a wonderful summer!
