Funny Rock

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.

Ordinarily, flowers make the vase, but not in this case. Learn how to make extraordinary vases in the next section.
