Directions in Making a Pet Rock

    • 1). Find a rock to turn into your pet rock. Look around a yard or near a creek, and be sure you are only collecting rocks from your own property or a property owner who does not care if you take the rocks. Rounded, smooth rocks are the best choice because they do not have sharp edges that can hurt you or others.

    • 2). Place the rock in a bucket of hot water and rub it with your hands to remove dirt or plants that may be stuck to it. Add dish detergent to the water as necessary; washing the rock with soap will also remove any bacteria on the rock. Remove the rock from the water and allow it to dry in the sun for a few hours.

    • 3). Paint the rock with acrylic paint. Paint on a face, along with other designs if you like, such as stripes or patterns. Allow the paint for at least 15 minutes, as acrylic paint dries fast.

    • 4). Glue googly craft eyes onto the rock using liquid craft glue. Allow the glue to dry overnight before handling or allowing children to play with the pet rock.
