Stone painting is an action of painting picture on natural stone. In 2015, I lectured stone painting for parents and children in the summer vacation event of local organization, and children in the science festival of elementary school. Both children and parents could enjoy stone painting and only 30 minutes or more was necessary. Everything needed for stone painting, for example, acrylic paint are sold in one coin (100 JPN) shops. Questionnaire survey indicated that almost all of participants were satisfied with stone painting. Stone painting is convenient outreach tool of geology for children.
