During lock down painting rocks and then putting them in parks and woods for people to find seemed to be the thing to do.  It was such a lovely idea that we have made turned rocks into ghostly stones and put them in our local woods for people to enjoy.

Make sure you follow my Halloween board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own ghostly stones you will need:

  • Stones – ones that have a flatter surface are great for drawing on
  • Acrylic paints or markers
  • Mod Podge

I gave all our stones a couple of layers of thick white paint before I handed them over to my charges to decorate.

We used acrylic markers to draw on our ghosts.

After everything had dried, we added a layer of mod podge, this was to help project it from the elements.

Finally, we took a walk through our local woods and put them in place for people to find.  I had to remind BB not to hide them otherwise people won’t be able to see them.

If you enjoyed making these ghostly stones, be sure to check out my cotton wool ghost pictures, ghost bombs, and flying ghost tea bags.

Pin for later:

turn some rocks into some Ghostly stones and then hide them around your local area for other kids to find.
