We’re breaking rocks! Bring some collected rocks to try smashing, preferably different colors, plus a hammer + a pair of goggles/eye protection. We’re going to pound rocks to see what’s inside! We can bring bowls and jars to collect different colors of grit and powder to make pourable, sand-style art in small jars. Gray (her art is here! or on Insta @grayjordanart) will also show us how she makes paint with crushed rocks, then we can paint too. If anyone wants to paint animals – or any designs – on rocks to hide around the playground, I will bring some enamel coating so they’ll last a while longer.

It’s gonna be 75º, and I’d love to sit outside the whole day. But we initially planned to make Stone Soup with this activity. If anyone wants to head this up, text me! I’ll coordinate ingredients (basic stuff like broth, potatoes, carrots, celery, onion, cabbage), but I don’t want to babysit the soup.

This week, please bring:
Hammer, goggles + ROCKS
Painting supplies – brushes, paper, jars
Lunch + snacks for your people
A game, craft or puzzle to share
