On our recent family trip away, the kids and I gathered a few rocks to keep as souvenirs...They, for some reason, were obsessed with these rocks at the lobby entrance of the hotel. The rocks were rounded, clean and had all sizes. Each night, each of my sons would pick a rock to play with. If it kept them calm and happy, we were OK with them even taking it to dinner at night :)
Below, is just a few that we've gathered. I helped pick out a few that resembled us...I wanted to make a googly eyed family portrait with these babies. Yeah, I'm always thinking of more crafts to do, even on vacation.
Things you may need:
- Rocks the mini' size and shape of your family
- Googly eyes
- Hot glue gun or any strong glue
- Tissue paper
- Shadow box from IKEA
- Shapies or paint
Write on the frame if you wish.
Outline a mustache, lips and brows with a pencil if you wish. Then, when you are satisfied with the faces, use a Sharpie marker to make them permanent.
Happy Summer Days All!
