These ridiculous rock animals are very easy to create! They make great paperweights or decorations.
Estimated Time: 45 minutes
- Rocks (make sure they're clean)
- Hot glue gun and hot glue
- Tempera paint
- Optional – Googly eyes, pipe cleaners, ribbon, markers, yarn, etc
- Optional – Acrylic varnish or other shiny finish
Using a few rocks and pebbles, experiment to make an interesting animal shape. Try making animals with no legs, two legs, three legs, or more! You can even give your animal huge rock ears or a rock tail.
When you’re pleased with the shape, hot glue the rocks together (adults should do the hot gluing). Then let the glue cool off.
Paint the rocks. Then let the paint dry.
Add eyes and other features using markers. If you’d like a shiny finish, coat with an acrylic varnish. Glue on googly eyes, pipe cleaners, ribbons, or other objects.
You now have a really ridiculous rock decoration!
Glued-on yarn makes a nice tail or hair.
