Spend some quality time bonding with your child by taking them on a nature walk. Try scouting for your next fun craft idea by making a pet rock with you child. Be sure to name it and give it a personality!
First, you must find a rock that is round and flat, with a smooth surface. Take it home, wash off the dirt, and dry it. With just some basic art supplies, such as wax crayons, googly eyes, yarn, glue, and some TLC you can make a pet rock with a lot of character. Encourage your child to brainstorm some adjectives to describe it.
You and your child will love making this fuzzy friend. Not only will this teach your child that it takes responsibility to care for a pet, but it can also serve as a paper weight for outdoor reading on those breezy days!
