Pet Rocks

Posted on: May 19, 2009

(There’s nothing like a pet, especially a pet rock.  We have a great time looking for rocks.  Then we wash them, dry them, and decorate them.  The boys love rock hunting.  They enjoy the painting too.  This is a fun, easy project.  And you can do it over and over because you can make all kinds of pets.)

Things you need:

  • Smock
  • Rocks
  • Paint (or markers)
  • Glue
  • Googly eyes
  • Random other stuff like buttons, plastic gems, shells, whatever you want to add (optional)

Find some rocks with the kids.  Have the child wash the rock.  Allow the rock to dry.  Have the child paint the rock (or color it). 

Allow the rock to dry.  You can have the child decorate the rock with markers.  (Evan made a tiger rock.  I messed around.)  Glue on eyes. 

If you want to make you pet rock more unique, glue on other fun stuff.
