Why a Pet Rock?

There are lots of fun things you can do with found rocks. Conduct experiments, make rock art, play rock bingo or make a pet rock.

If your kids want a pet, you can’t get an easier one than a pet rock! It will inspire creativity and teach responsibility. And it’s a great alternative for families with allergies. Think of a pet rock as a starter pet. When the kids master the pet rock, it may be time to trade up to Rover the dog or Kitty the cat.

Find the rock in your backyard, on a nature hike or during a walk around your neighborhood. Then bring it into your home and make it a part of your family.
