The sky's the limit when you decorate a pet rock. Grab any paint supplies you have and give your rock some personality!
The most important piece of the puzzle is finding a rock that you can turn into your pet! A rock hunt with family and friends can turn into a fun adventure, and is a great way to get outside and explore!
Lay down newspaper or paper towel on a flat surface to protect the paint from going on the table or other household items
Go wild with paint colours and designs - you can experiment with different paint brushes and sponges to get different textures and patterns!
Let it dry! You want your base paint to dry before you add detail or it might not stick!
Pro tip: Sharpie can be used to make fine lines or other small details
You can use cotton balls as hair, or pipe cleaners as arms, you can even add googly eyes with glue!
Let your imagination take over!
Personalize your rock!
It can be so much fun to name your pet rock, or maybe create a birth certificate for it!
You can even bring your new pet inside and have it become a new member of the family!
