If you have not done this yet, you need to.  Simply warm up the rocks in the oven (I did 220 for 10 minutes), then put them on a stack of newspapers (or something else you dont care if it gets crayon in it) and let the little ones go to town.  Just remind them it is hot.  I have done it with 2 1/2 year olds with no problem.  My little lady often brings in rocks for me to cook so she can paint them#Repin By:Pinterest++ for iPad#
