These are really simple to make and even very little children can create their own pet rock puppies. We used "googlie eyes" which are very popular in our house right now, however you could just as easily use circle stickers with dots in the middle or cut out paper eyes and draw "pupils" on yourself.

It is fun to make a new friend, especially if the rock/s in question are a souvenir from holidays or a recent outdoor adventure. Actually, I think the rock collecting part was the highlight for my family - wandering the beach for hours looking for the ideal puppy face.

Glue the rock onto the already cut out ear shapes.

Glue on some "googlie eyes" (available in most discount variety stores) and a round puppy nose (we just used some left over scrap cardboard).
Draw on a mouth (optional) using a permanent marking pen, which should work easily if your rock is smooth and flat enough.
Make the whole pet rock puppy family and have fun with your hand made new toys.
