September 16 honors collecting rocks. Rocks, stones or pebbles can be relatively easy to collect if you chose small ones. You’ll have a bit more of a challenge as you select larger ones.
Remember when Pet Rocks were popular? There is just something about rocks. They come in all sizes, shapes, colors, and textures. You can sometimes find heart shaped rocks or even state shaped ones. Your imagination can run a bit here.
Rocks can be a decorative item both inside and out. Displaying your vacation souvenir rocks in a pretty jar or candy dish can brighten a spot in your home. Rocks are a great flower bed border or a garden accent piece. Whimsical painted rocks, a mobile of rocks, or stacked rocks can be strategically placed to please the eye. Enjoy your favorite rock as a paper weight.
Rocks can be made into a variety of “pretties” whether as a pendant, stone beads in a bracelet, or as earrings. Donut shaped stones can easily be turned into pendants with a bit of cord and a clasp.
Who doesn’t like to throw rocks into a lake or river? Skipping rocks can be a fun pastime or competition. Children enjoy playing in pebbles where they can build mounds, valleys, and run their toys around their creations. Watching water flow over rocks can be beautiful and mesmerizing.
