Painted Rock Napkin Holder Craft

Rock painted red, white and blue to hold napkins down.

Have the kids scour the beach or the river for nice flat rocks to make this Painted Rock Napkin Holder to keep your napkins from blowing away during barbeques and picnics.  This is just one of the many ways that painted rocks can be used. It’s a great way to get the kids out into nature to scour beaches and creeks for the perfect rocks and then enjoy quiet time decorating them in their own unique way.


Rocks are constantly changing in what is called the rock cycle. It takes millions of years for rocks to change. Source: Ducksters Education Site – Earth Science for Kids
