I give them a base coat of acrylic paint, usually painting them pink, blue, red, green, yellow and purple, as these seem to be the favorite kid colors. It may take 2 or 3 coats to cover the rock. Then I paint faces on them and the word "prayer" somewhere. I spray a clear acrylic coat over the top when they are dry. I like the glossy spray.
If you don't have access to suitable rocks, buy a bag from the dollar store.
I think you could give these to older kids for scripture reading, too, with the words "The Scriptures Rock".
The kids really like getting these, and it is worth the extra effort.
