Pet Rocks

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!

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!!
