Rock Candy

When painting (or gifting) small rocks and stones it is important to keep in mind that young children and nursing home residents may mistake the brightly painted rocks as candy and attempt to eat them.

Some of my nativity sets feature Baby Jesus glued to a piece of bark which makes the piece slightly larger and less appetizing. The bark also becomes a unique, natural manger.

Remember to always consider the possible recipient of rock art paintings; bright or realistic painted rocks can be deceiving.
