Kids Art with Rocks - 18 Ways to Use Rocks in Kids ArtEverybody loves a rock, right? Byrd Baylor would say Everybody Needs a Rock.

Maia went through a phase as a toddler and preschooler where she would pick up and collect rocks anywhere we happened to be.

Piles of rocks.

Now it’s usually just a special rock here or there. And a budding interest in geology.

We like our rocks au naturel, but we also have a soft spot for rock arts and crafts.
