Pet Rocks
Total Time 1 hour Ages all-ages

Part of the fun with this '70s-inspired craft is hunting for the perfect rocks to decorate, making it a fitting project for after a nature hike or during a birthday party.

What you'll need

  • Rocks and pebbles
  • Glue (hot glue lasts longest, but white glue and glue sticks work well and are easier with a crowd of kids)
  • Googly eyes and pom-poms
  • Fun fur
  • Scissors
  • Acrylic paints and paintbrushes
Variations:

Try making Pet Shells, an easy adaptation of the basic design and a good way to get rid of all those shells from last summer's beach vacation.

How to make it

  1. Set out the rocks and decorating supplies on a big table.

  2. Look for natural features in the rocks that resemble noses, chins, ears, and so on.

  3. Stick pebbles, googly eyes, and pom-poms in place with the glue. Kids can also use fun fur for hair, mustaches, and beards or apply additional features with acrylic paint.
