Make Rock Animal Crafts

Kids will love crafting rocks into cute tigers, pandas and leopards with some paint and construction paper.

DIY Craft: Rock Animal Buddies

2 rocks, one smaller than the other (1 pair for each animal)
Acrylic paint in assorted colors
Hot-glue gun
Construction paper


1. Paint rocks a solid color; let dry. Using a small brush, paint details such as spots, stripes and (on smaller rock) facial features. Let dry. Glue smaller rock to larger rock.

2. For ears, cut a pair of circles or ovals out of construction paper, adding a tab or stem. For panda, cut a pair of circles out of white paper that are about 1/3 smaller than black circles, and glue them to black circles. Glue ears to head. Leopard's ears are painted directly onto rock.
