Craft: Rock Animals

Kids will love transforming rocks into their favorite zoo animals. Let them get artistic and open up their imagination by making rock animals they can enjoy all summer long. Done in only two steps!


What you’ll need:

– 2 rocks, one smaller than the other (1 pair for each animal
– Acrylic paint in assorted colors
– Paintbrushes
– Hot-glue gun
– Construction paper
– Scissors


1. Paint rocks a solid color; let dry. Using a small brush, paint details such as spots, stripes and (on smaller rock) facial features. Let dry. Glue smaller rock to larger rock.

2. For ears, cut a pair of circles or ovals out of construction paper, adding a tab or stem. For panda, cut a pair of circles out of white paper that are about 1/3 smaller than black circles, and glue them to black circles. Glue ears to head. Leopard’s ears are painted directly onto rock.
