March's rock painting challenge includes designs that celebrate the seasons. For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, signs of Spring are among us, so this list features bunnies, flowers and butterflies. For those in the Southern Hemisphere, the cool crisp air of Autumn is approaching. This marks the end of turtle hatching season — you may just be lucky enough to spot baby sea turtles make their way out to sea! (hence, the sea turtles design).

Do the floss!
We love to paint these designs and leave around dental offices for kids to find. Let's face it, getting kids (and, some adults!) to floss isn't always easy. Our dentist office gave us samples of Crayola kids' flossers, which helped make dental hygiene a breeze!
A fluttering butterfly
"If nothing ever changed, there would be no butterflies." - anonymous
Learning how to draw a butterfly was something we wanted to try. We used this "How to Draw Cute Stuff" book for a step-by-step tutorial. And, we practiced drawing a butterfly on paper. Then, we applied what we learned and made a rock painting tutorial to show how to paint that butterfly onto a rock.
Take care of Mother Earth
You've heard it over and over. We have this one planet — let's be kind to it. With sea levels rising and marine life experiencing heartbreaking pollution, it's important we all take steps to protect Mother Earth.
Some simple changes you can make include:
- carry reusable bags (many countries ban single-use items like plastic bags). We absolutely love these bagpodz reusable bags because they can scrunch into a purse or clip onto your shopping cart. And, just toss into the washing machine every once in a while to clean them.
- shop at thrift stores — you know the saying "one person's trash is another's treasure". You never know what you'll find! When we're not painting rocks, we love to do puzzles. It's surprising how many puzzles (still in shrinkwrap!) we've found at our local thrift store. It's a small way to help reduce your carbon footprint by getting some use out of a recycled item vs buying new.
- use a travel mug — 💡Did you know? Many coffee shops welcome your reusable travel mug and will sometimes even offer a discount if you use your mug vs one of their disposable cups. We like this ceramic travel mug because it keeps our coffee and tea hot and our water cold. We couldn't help but bling ours with our exclusive rock painting vinyl sticker!
