This weeks challange at Unplug your Kids was "STONE". Now, I am not being original and am doing stuff that is all over the net at the moment - HOT ROCKS by Wise Craft and NATURE STONES by Write Mama, Write
Living in the city, I found this challange a little difficult as their aren't too many rocks/stones lying around (that aren't in buildings or private property)
Find assorted things around the garden, Roll sculptey ( I used a cheap version air drying clay- it was printed in another language so I don't know what it was - but for the same price of 50g of Sculptey I got 300g!!)
Press items into the clay
Allow to dry (it can take a few days so we cheated and put them in the oven for a little while)
Basically warm up rocks in your oven. Then draw on them with crayons. The crayon melts instantly and turns like paint on the rocks - it is very fun and addictive - we just need to find more stones - maybe I just need to buy some from a Garden Store.
Some finished rocks we used to decorate our Aloe Vera garden
