Spring is here and even those parts of the country that have spent the last several months covered in snow are starting to see some relief. Enjoy the weather and get your kids out into the community to spread a little love in the form of street art. Street art? For kids? Banksy would be proud!

The folks at Busy Beaver Buttons were so inspired by this family who painted up a whole basket of funny rocks and then left them all across town that they've come up with more ways to leave a little something behind for those who follow you.

Now unlike real graffiti all of these ideas are temporary and can be removed so no one is doing any real damage to their community, but can you imagine the smile on someone's face when they come around the corner at the grocery store and find something silly on the shelf next to the pickles? Or at the park near the water fountain?

Some things to have on hand to get started might be pipe cleaners, magnets, buttons and lots of googly eyes! Check out the full list of suggestions to get your own mini street art campaign going with your kids over at Busy Beaver Buttons and visit Chicken Nugget Lemon Tooty to see all the fun places they left their painted rocks.
