While reading the February issue of Ranger Rick magazine, The Big Explorer was enthralled by the images of hearts in nature, which were cleverly turned into Valentines. I suggested we try making one of our own.
After mulling over a few ideas, we agreed on painting a heart on a rock, taking a photo and adding the phrase, “Valentine, you rock!”
We only needed a few items to make it happen: acrylic paint, a paintbrush, a black sharpie and a rock.
Of course, the real fun came in searching our backyard for the perfect rock.
When the rock was painted and ready for its close up, The Explorers went crazy taking pictures of it in all sorts of scenarios until we found just the right one.
Sometimes connecting with nature can come in these silly moments. Don’t miss them!
