::: pet rocks
We have a television show here in Oz called “Better Homes and Gardens” and they feature a vet called Dr Harry. He recently visited our friend Jenny from “Let the Children Play” to see their retro pets – ants and sea monkeys. Dr Harry also went out into the surrounding bush and found some small rocks which he and the children made into pet rocks with the addition of eyes.
As some of our children had seen this particular program, they were keen to have a go themselves.
We added lots of other bits and pieces too …
so they could make their rocks into birds, reptiles or perhaps woolly sheep – whatever they wanted.
They made some very interesting ‘pets’ and were very excited to be taking them to their new (better?) homes and gardens.
