Rain, rain go away …
So far, we haven’t had much of a summer. Georgia and I kept busy for a couple of hours today making pet rocks.
Here we have a ‘mom-made’ panda on the left and a ‘kid-made’ panda on the right.
Lizzy and Sam came home and joined in the fun.
We ended up with an entire zoo of pet rocks.
This dalmation mom and baby courtesy of Georgia cracks me up.
Glue (I used –> Aleene’s Tacky Glue )
Various other craft supplies (your choice, but may include –> pom-poms, felt, googly-eyes, feathers, buttons, coloured paper, sequins, glitter …)
I highly recommend waiting for paint to dry before adding additional coats, however, my children didn’t find this necessary.
The two in the middle are a wolf and a fox.
I was nearly as bad as the kids making several creations.

Cute! I don’t do nearly enough craft projects with my kids. I think I’m just not creative enough. But this is a great idea and looks fairly easy to do. We’ll have to try this on our next rainy day.
This is really a good bonding activity. I remember this convention I attended, I’m not sure whether it was Easter that time but the we had eggs painted and afterwards displayed in a kids exhibition. We really had fun. This was somewhat similar with the eggs just less cracks.
So adorable. I have a whole shelf at work devoted to the little rock ‘creatures’ that me, my son and my husband have created. Some of the rocks from when he was younger look a little more ‘abstract’ lol but I love them! So happy you posted this!
So cute! I’ve done this with my boys and they loved it. I need to buy more googley eyes for future craft projects.
We made these at our kids pre-school and they were such a hit. I thought the kids would not get it. But they just had a blast doing the project and creating a story about the history of there pet.
