Dad Rocks! paperweightDLTK's Holiday Crafts for Kids
Father's Day Paperweight

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

Every dad needs a paperweight on their desk...right!

Here are a couple of simple designs that we made.  Feel free to get creative with a design of your own.

The first step is to find a suitable rock.  We had some smooth, flat, decorative rocks that we used for our project but you could head outdoors to find the perfect stone for your project.

You Rock!  paperweightBe sure to cover the kids in some old clothes too because the acrylic paint does not wash out.  Give yourself some time to paint and decorate the rock.  It took two or three coats for our rocks which is not too bad since the paint only takes a few minutes to dry.
