What child doesn’t love a pet rock? I remember them back in my day, they were these teeny, tiny little things with huge eyes and everyone had one! I thought I would give my kids a trip down (my) memory lane & show them you don’t need Wifi to have fun…(well I do maybe, but they don’t lol).
You can be as creative as you like. I used:
White out pen
Glue gun or Craft Glue
This guy is inspired my ‘Mike’ from the movie ‘Monsters Inc’ which is Master L’s favourite character. A splash of green paint, a googley eye & a mouth created with the white out pen and a nikko.
This one just needed some hair – a fringe (bangs) and pony tails made out of wool, some embellishments for hair bows, googley eyes and again a nikko/white out pen mouth.
A pink feather for hair, some googley eyes, a hair embellishment a pom pom for a nose & you have a pretty girly rock!
I went for a ‘Crazy Grandad/Mad Scientist’ look for this one. I had some old hair & little glasses left over from a previous craft (you can get these from pretty much any craft store). Then just added a funny toothless mouth!
Love this little Lady Bug. So easy to do. Some black, red & white paint & some googley eyes!
This crab rock was easy too, a lick of red paint, some pipe cleaners & googley eyes & you are done!
It was so fun, easy & inexpensive to create these little characters. My Kids love them and Master L even asked if he could sleep with one tonight…I think I will make them some little houses…watch this space!
