Activity: Pebble Pets
Every child wants a pet. Parents, how about a pet that never sheds and doesn’t need to be fed or walked? Look no further, pebble pets are only a moment away.
What you need:
Felt in various colors
Plain white paper
Optional: color felt-tip pins
First, cut out shapes to make your pet’s feet, arms, and hair. Glue them to the pebble Be sure to hold each shape in place for a few seconds on the pebble to ensure the felt is secure. Use your imagination! Does your pebble look like a cat? Cut out black whiskers to glue onto the pebble. Use the white paper and felt-tip pens to draw eyes and then glue to your pebble pet. Now you can take your pebble pet anywhere.
