Local artist inspires kids to disconnect from electronics, reconnect with nature

CINCINNATI (WXIX) – A local artist is using her talents to help encourage kids to drop their cell phones and enjoy nature.

Sara Wallace hand-paints rocks before scattering them through neighborhoods and parks in Clermont County for children to find.

“They’re cheap, they’re free. It’s just a hobby I do,” Wallace said.

Wallace discovered inspiration for her hobby while on a walk.

“I see places, and I think, ‘gosh, that would be a good place to hide an easter egg,’ and then I think, ‘well, maybe I’ll hide rocks,’” Wallace said.

Children successfully find the hidden rocks within minutes of hiding them.

In recent weeks, Wallace says she has had to design and hide more rocks.

“It makes me so happy. I don’t have grandkids to paint rocks for, and these kids just love it. They love it. and They send me pictures and post pictures and trade them around like trading rocks. Yeah, it’s pretty fun.” Wallace said.

Wallace says she continues to design and hide more rocks on Easter weekend for the children to enjoy.
