Hide and Go Seek Painted Rocks!


Recently a group was created on Facebook called, “Hide and Go Seek Painted Rocks Mansfield, AR.” At first, it was just an idea by a few moms in the Mansfield Moms Group, but one mom decided to put the idea into motion. The group is open to anyone who is ready to have FREE summer fun with their kids.

Mansfield kids of all ages as well as adults are painting rocks of all kinds of shapes and designs in their free summer time. Rocks can be painted with acrylic paints, sharpies, or even fingernail polish. Once the rocks are painted, the kids, with the help of their parents, hide the beautiful painted rocks all over Mansfield and Huntington areas. Mainly the local parks, walking trails and the town gazebo have been the hot spots. Participants are told to hide in places that will not effect city mowers or in any way damage any town property. Those hiding rocks are encouraged to have parents go online and post a picture of their rocks for a clue to know where some of the rocks are hidden and also to show what the rocks look like. Hiders can even give riddles and clues to where their rocks might be.

Then, other kids go hunting! Once the rocks are found, parents once again post in the group letting others know of their “found” rocks! It’s a great summer FREE activity for all ages.

One local Resident, Irene Klentz in the Facebook group, even left a small note tied to her rock leading to more clues of a hidden treasure to accompany the rock find. A small wooden angel was found as the prize at one of the parks’ gazebo. Another local Resident has attached a note to a rock saying that the finder will receive one FREE snow cone from Huntington’s local Express Sno Cones shop by returning the rock to the snow cone shop!

This wonderful activity is making the minds of kids creative and active by painting rocks while at home, and it is also encouraging families to stay physically active while out from their local school session.

So, parents get your kids to painting so they can go hunting! Happy Hunting!
