This Pet Rock Craft is another fun outdoor activity that keeps on giving even after you’ve finished. It sparked my son’s creativity big time!
First you’ve got to collect your rocks.
Next, we painted them and one day I’ll remember to change his clothes first.
You need to let the rock dry but considering its 103 over here that took about 2.5 seconds.
When you decorate you can use anything you have. I had google eyes, feathers, and pompoms. But you can use pipe cleaners, tissue paper, ribbons, jewels, etc.
You will need a hot glue gun to make sure everything sticks on the rock. My son can use a hot glue gun like a pro but you may need to help out a little here.
Decorate them anyway you want and watch their little imaginations take flight.
Afterwards all these little guys got names and were the highlight of the day. A few rock buddies even found their way to our kitchen table for dinner.
