    • Small rocks, smooth river rocks work best
    • Craft Paint
    • Paint brush
    • Black ink pen
    • Hot glue and glue gun
    • Magnet


  1. Wash and dry the rocks and then paint the entire rock with one color. Allow paint to dry.
  2. Using the black pen, draw whatever design you’d like. If the pen stops drawing clearly, draw on a piece of scrap paper. Usually it’s paint that prevents the pen from writing well.
