Here is a fun STEAM activity (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) to try with your child. With Easter right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to turn ordinary rocks into Easter egg stacking rocks! First we searched for flat rocks at our local beach. This is a balancing activity so flat rocks make this much easier and allow for taller stacks of rocks. Once we found our beach treasures, we brought them home to start the fun. This is what we did:

1. We used washi tape and stickers to make designs on the rocks.

2. We painted over the whole rock, including the stickers.

3. We waited for the paint to dry and peeled the stickers and tape off. They turned out great!

The next morning, I hid the rocks around the yard and the boys searched for them. This was a great way to practice for the egg hunt on Easter morning! Once they were all found, they had fun working together and stacking the rocks. This activity is great for building fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. We also talked about new words like, “stack” and “balance.” This is such a fun way to learn through play!
