The Art Box: Pet Rocks

In keeping with our letter for the week, R, our box included: 4 colors of paint, 2 sponge brushes, and 4 rocks.

Mustang decided to paint all 4 rocks and I found a 5th one for myself. I should have had better brushes, but this is what we had on hand.

Apparently, Mustang had just as much fun mixing all the paints as she did painting the rocks.

We let the rocks dry a couple days, and then we added googly eyes. Very cute!

To see what others had their box, check out Tired, Need Sleep.

Oh gosh, these are SO cute! We painted rocks last summer, but I never thought of adding googley eyes - what a great idea! Now I need to go dig in the snow and find some rocks... :)
