This collage craft results in a great paperweight. Help your kids design this funny rock that will make you roll with laughter every time you look at it.
What You'll Need:
- Smooth, round rock
- Blunt scissors
- Craft glue
- Newspaper comics
- Clear nail polish
- Waxed paper
Step 1: Find a very round and smooth rock.
Step 2: Have your child cut out his favorite cartoon characters from the newspaper. Apply an even coat of glue to the back of the comic strips.
Step 3: Place them on the rock. Cover it completely, overlapping the pictures.
Step 4: Once the glue has dried, paint over the whole rock with clear nail polish. The polish creates a clear shellac and seals the pictures.
Step 5: Set the rock on a sheet of waxed paper. Let the polish dry.
