Owl Rock

After creating a few bee rocks recently, here at Taff Rocks HQ, we thought we'd have a change and create an Owl rock for you.  If you're looking for our complete lists of tutorials, click here for the index

There are many and varied tutorials out there on how to create simple owls on rocks and make them look perhaps a little more complicated when completed. It's all nice and simple and we encourage you to have a browse around the internet, including Pinterest, for some ideas

Easy Finger Painted Butterfly

With the recent additions of spring-time 'things' tutorials of finger-painted bees, flowers and caterpillars, anything Spring just wouldn't be Springy enough without the anticipation of caterpillars emerging as butterflies not long away! There might even be another bee tutorial due soon so, watch this space!

This butterfly is absolutely as colourful as you want her to be, so let's get creating!

Using Colouring Books For Inspiration

I have been asked, in the past, where I get some of my inspiration from. I am unashamedly a great user of the internet and kids colouring books.

The reason why I prefer kids colouring books is because of the simplicity of some of the pages, which allows me to directly copy or even just get the ideas.

Easy Finger Painted Flowers

Finger painted flowers, a beautiful and simple little flower of any colour your desire. Creating finger painted flower rocks couldn't be easier, even for little fingers, under adult supervision. After all, we don't want our little ones putting their paint-y fingers in their mouths, even if the pain is non-toxic.

Easy Finger Painted Bumble Bees

With the coming of spring, comes the buzzing of the bees. Creating bumble bee rocks couldn't be easier when using this easy finger painted method. It's even suitable for little fingers, under supervision. After all, we don't want our little ones licking the paint, even if it is non-toxic.

British Science Week 2019

This week, 8th March to 17th March 2019, is British Science Week. A ten day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths. 

We'd like to encourage you to take part, either as part of your community or as part of your school. Taff Rocks is not running any BSW activities, but we will be looking into how we can for future years.

This year's theme is "Journeys", as members of Taff Rocks HQ are keen on space and astronomy, we have chosen our journey theme as "Space Travel". 

Add photos of you science-y themed rocks to our group before you send them off on their own fantastic journeys.

We did it ...

Taff Rocks Rock School: We Did It!: Taff Rocks, the fully constituted organisation! On Monday the 4th of March 2019, Taff Rocks became a fully constituted Not-For-Profit* Organisation.
