A fun game for all ages using natural objects!


  • 10 rocks
  • Acrylic Paints
  • Accessories to make rocks fun
  • Wood board
  • Paintbrushes
  • Wax paper, or newspaper. (something the painted rocks can dry on)

STEP ONE:  Make sure the surface of the wood board is clean. Paint one or both sides of the board a bright color within your color scheme or pattern and set aside to dry.

STEP TWO:  Divide the 10 rocks into two teams. Paint one team one color scheme and the other team another color scheme. Set aside to dry.

  • Please Note: with acrylic paints, you may have to apply a few coats. 
  • Then accessorize if needed. Adding feathers, googly eyes, yarn, glitter etc...

STEP THREE:  Once the board is dry then draw on the actual lines for the game with a black Sharpie pen.

OPTIONAL:  To keep this outside all year round you can spray the pieces and the board with a clear or gloss protective coating. This works only with plain painted rocks without accessories. No yarn, fabrics or materials besides painted rocks.
