Painted Pet Rock

Our new pet rock.

You will need:
  • A rock
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
How to:
Seriously? You are actually reading the directions for this project? Well, OK, for those of you who like to have things spelled out for you...

  1. Go for a walk and look for a nice size rock.
  2. Pick up rock; take it home.
  3. Wash off any dirt. Let dry
  4. Paint rock. Let dry.
Easy, easy, easy. Our rock sits on Elliott's bookshelf now, but for weeks after it was made, it went EVERYWHERE with us.

 We walked for quite a while and turned our noses up at several rocks before finding "the one". I think that was part of the reason Elliott took such ownership of his rock.

You'd be surprised at how well this project goes over with kids.
