Worry rocks are a folk practice found in culture all over the world. They are now recognized as a powerful self-soothing tool. They provide sensory stimulation, a controlled distraction, and an easy replacement for harmful or distracting anxiety behaviors—like nail biting, skin picking, and pen clicking.
But not all worry rock are created equal. Some are smooth. Some are bumpy. Some are heavy, and some are light. Each person’s sensory needs are unique, so it makes sense to adapt your worry rock to meet your needs.
For example, Tresa craves smooth textures and round, perfectly even patterns to soothe her OCD. But Meredith finds straight lines with uneven textures eases her ADHD and anxiety symptoms.
Worry rocks are a great activity to do with a friend or family. They’re also a great way to help kids learn about self-soothing tools.
Rocks like the ones included in this kit can be found at craft stores, dollar stores, and for free out in nature. Try different sizes and & weights to find what works for you. You may even find that you crave different textures and weights for different feelings.
We’ve included rocks that are small enough to be carried unobstrusively in your pocket. You have enough paint to do hundreds of rocks, and the dot painting tools can used again and again.
