Make a pet rock

Make a pet rock

A pet rock is fun to create and, best of all, it is a pet kids love that requires no care! Follow these simple steps and the kids will have theirs in no time!

What you need:

  • smooth rocks
  • paint
  • paintbrush
  • craft materials to decorate (wool, googly eyes, felt, etc.)

Number of players:


You can make this into a longer activity by hunting for rocks first around your home, a nearby park or similar.

Tell your kids to find the smoothest ones and then on the way home, discuss the best name for your child's new pet.

Encourage your child to bring their pet to life by adding a face using paints and craft materials glued on. For example, you can use googly eyes, a button for a nose, wool for hair or just use a paintbrush and paint these on.
