Pet Rock Turtles

by Lucy (follow)
Turn off the TV and tune into your own imagination. Enjoy each moment, allowing your creativity to unfold in the kitchen, craft space or in nature.

Creating your own little pet rocks is great fun. From the choosing of the rock itself (an activity best done at the beach or whilst bush walking) to the design of the creature, this will bring hours of entertainment to most little children. I like the use of an object directly sourced from nature and we remember our time at the beach (where we collected the rocks) each time we play with the turtle family.

Mummy Pet Rock Turtle and Baby Pet Rock Turtle


Time: 20 minutes
Age: Any Age
Level: Easy



rocks
Collect some flat rocks


Materials
Flat rocks
Colored cardboard
Craft glue
String (or paint is another option)



rocks
Glue the plaited string onto the rocks to make shells


Method
Collect some flat rocks from the beach or a nearby creek. Choose one rock to be turned into a turtle.
Cut out a "turtle" shape to fit beneath your chosen rock - the head, four feet and a little pointy tail.
Glue your rock onto the cardboard cutout.
Plait your string and wind it around in a swirl to make the turtle "shell". Glue it onto the back of the rock. You could also simply paint the shell for a smooth looking effect. My kids were just really enjoying their gluing the day we made ours. You could also draw on some eyes, but mine were happy without.
Allow the glue to dry completely before playing with your turtle family. Have fun and happy rock collecting.
