We made "pet rocks" today. The idea thanks to Skip to My Lou.
STEP 1: Collect rocks from outside.
STEP 2: Get out your supplies (paint, smocks, glue, googly eyes, pipe cleaners...)
STEP 3: Paint the rocks!
If you're curious what any of the above critters are, here is the description, in the kids' own words.
White w/ brown pipe cleaners: "lion" - upside down lion - upside down b/c the legs are drying
Red rock with black legs: "lady bug"
Blue rock : "Hammer head shark"
Green rock: "Toucan beak"
Brown rock: "again" - I have no idea what this means or if I misunderstood
Rocks w/ black tape: "monkey" which is taped together so the glue will dry
