This new activity is really gathering pace and popularity in Reddish. Its quite simple and lots of fun…

1 – Collect some rocks

2 – Decorate your rocks (on the back, write something along the lines of “If found, please post on “Reddish Rocks” on Facebook”) Rocks can be decorated using paint, chalk, sharpie pens, glitter etc. Please make sure your designs are child friendly!
