I seem to have a fascination with ‘natural’ things these days .
Fun Things To Do With Rocks
There are plenty of fun things you can do with rocks:
Strategically place them in your garden
Use them as stepping stones for a walkway
Place larger ones in key areas and use as outdoor seating (patio, fire pit)
Place one on either side the path or steps leading up to your front door
Make fun centerpieces using stones and pebbles
Arrange them at the bottom of glass vases
Create outdoor water features
One of my most recent ‘rocky’ finds was the Inukshuk — a unique arrangement of large rocks that signifies one’s home turf or territory.
Well, now there’s a fun new board game that is along the lines of the Inukshuk.
It’s called Rukshuk.
Rukshuk is a game for ages 8 and up and can be played alone or with a group. The goal is to balance uniquely shaped rocks of various colors and sizes into a stack — without the stack collapsing. (Think Jenga.)
They say it’s addictive and challenging. I want one!
But then again, I like games like pixie sticks, jenga… and tiddly winks too.
Here’s a kids-eye review of the Rukshuk game:
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
