Summer Holiday Crafts - Day 8

Today we created 'Monster Pet Rocks' thanks to an idea on the WhiMSy love blog

Lara painted a few stones collected from our gravel driveway with various colours of acrylic paint.

When they were dry she stuck goggle eyes onto them and drew mouths etc with a black pen.

Voila! Monster Pet Rocks which she has named and told me all about their character. Such an imagination!

This next little green rock is a special rock. Lara gave this 'Lucky Green Rock Monster' to her big brother Christopher who today received his A level results and found out that he has secured his place at Nottingham University to study for an MEng in Electronic Engineering. Lara thought he would like the little green rock to bring him luck whilst he's away.

Congratulations Christopher. We're all so very proud of your achievement.
