Pet Rocks

20 Feb


At noon art last week, the kids made pet rocks.  I could not believe how creative they were!!  I had also put out empty shoe boxes and bits of fabric for them.

This one is a dog. The child who made this one was so happy and couldn’t wait to bring it home to share with her family.


Here is a whole family of pet rocks and I got to meet them all by name!


This habitat is complete with bed, small rug and chairs.


VERY decorated habitat!


Another family complete with pets and different rooms to hang out in! As you can see (and this is a very small sampling), the kids had a huge blast with this project. We had about 150 students at this noon art. I wish I had taken more pictures – there were two story homes, homes with doors and roofs, “pets” that were all dressed up – the list goes on and on. I LOVE noon art, these kid’s creativity know no bounds!!
