Stone Paperweight

Stone Paperweight (6)

If you’re looking for a gift your toddler can make for a relative this holiday season, the paperweight is it.

The best part about this gift is that it starts with a nature walk! It can be a harder to motivate kids for these once the cold sets in, so I loved motivating Veronika by telling her we were on a treasure hunt for the perfect rock.

We came home with two that were the perfect size and shape, including one that almost looked like a heart.

Now it was time to paint. Not only did we use sparkly paint…

…but she wanted to dump glitter on, too. We used the recipient’s favorite color combo of orange and blue.

Let dry, then spray with shellac for a shinier finish. (Note: that’s a grown-up only step).
