fun stuff : pet rocks

posted on: Friday, August 20, 2010


When I was a kid I had a couple of pet rocks. We bought them from my favourite part of the dinosaur museum. The gift shop. But it turns out you don't need to take a trip into 'town' to get one of these awesome lil' guys. This is what you need:



A rock. A packet of googly eyes. A bottle of craft glue. Too easy!



Oh, and a paint brush to dab on the glue.


I encouraged the Baby Space toddler to bond with his new creation. "You can give him a name even!" I exclaimed. "So what are you going to call him?" I prompted.

"His name is My Pet Rock Even!" was the enthusiastic reply. I was also told that my practice rock was the mama rock and his was the baby rock and they were best friends.

So many more rocks to bring to life...

Have a lovely weekend!

  5. That is so cute! And fun. I've never had a pet rock in my life but we sure did see a huge variety of pet crabs in Virginia Beach! Live crabs but their shells were painted and decorated like your pet rocks. It was only on closer inspection when I saw one of the shells move that I noticed there were live crabs living in em! These are a cute project for kids..
