Kid's Club: Frederick Rocks

If you haven't heard of Frederick Rocks, then you might be living under a rock! Groups get together and paint one side of a flat rock with whatever image they want, and on the other side they write #FrederickRocks and the Facebook symbol. Then they will scatter them around Frederick and surrounding areas. When someone finds the rock, they post a photo on social media and use the hashtag. Frederick Rocks social media accounts will feature some of the rocks that have made it to far-out places. Earlier this year one of our rocks was found in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee!

We will be decorating Mexican Beach Buttons and larger Delaware Valley River Stones with gel markers and paint pens.

Some of the rocks will be distributed throughout the nursery grounds, but each attendee will be encouraged to take several painted rocks with them to distribute as you please.
