Kid’s Project Idea: Pet Rocks

By  | Last Updated:  

I wonder if collecting rocks is a genetic trait. My boys, at least the older two, like to stuff them in their pockets. I loved collecting rocks when I was little. I didn’t ever make them into stone pets however. If I’d seen what Maggy Woodley, from Red Ted Art, has done with rocks with her kids, I’m sure I would have done it too. I know my boys are going to have a go at it.
