  2. Place the rock in a new location making sure others will find it.
  3. Have a go at making your own rock (see instructions on the right/below)
  4. Visit Worcester Cathedral!

Make a Rock

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Choose a rock – not too big, make sure its easy to carry in one adult hand
  2. Paint something that reminds you of Worcester Cathedral on your rock – what might you paint?
    • Prince Arthur?
    • The High Altar?
    • A monk?
    • A stained glass window?
    • The river?
    • The Cathedral building?
    • A message of hope or kindness?
    • Something else?
    • Don’t use stick on eyes or jewels or anything that might harm wildlife
    • Remember to varnish or seal your rock so that the paint doesn’t come off
  3. On the back of your rock write #worcestercathedralrocks then post a photo of your rock on social media
  4. You could hide your rock on holiday or close to where you live. Just make sure that it is not in anyone’s way and that it isn’t too well hidden.
