My kiddos and I were having arts and crafts time earlier today when I asked my five year old what she was creating. She simply showed me this adorable Pet Rock Puppy and explained to me “her tips” to make it which included: finding light-colored, smooth rocks; using permanent marker before painting the rock; and adding ‘bling’ (aka glitter) to the puppy so it has a special, unique collar.
I can’t tell you how happy it makes me when my kiddos create and completely take ownership of their projects!
You will need: rock, paints, paintbrush, glitter, glue, and permanent markers.
- Find a rock to turn into your puppy.
- Decorate the rock. Using permanent marker, have your kiddos draw the puppy’s eyes, nose, mouth, and ears. Encourage your kiddos to be creative and use their imaginations.
- Paint the rock.
- Allow to dry. Add glitter, sparkles, and anything else to make your pet rock puppy more personalized and special.
- Have your kiddos create a customized birth certificate for their new pet rock puppy (name, DOB, address, etc.). This encourages creativity, writing practice, and address/phone number recognition.
