Pebble Pets

After looking through her ever growing collection of pebbles Minnie decided to give some of them a little personality. She grabbed the googly eyes we'd been using for another craft & our set of pens for glass & ceramics & set to work creating her pebble people!

She then put together these sections of wood to make a house for the pebble people who were soon developing names & characteristics! We had Robby who was scruffy, Milly who was bossy, & a sleepy sue who kept falling asleep! :-)

These pebble pals have been played with so many times & taken on numerous adventures around the house & garden!

Individually they're also a perfect size to pop into a pocket, & one of the pebbles has been taken to school in the bottom of her school bag every day this week. (Great for providing a little reassurance & a link between home & school.)

Then with a little help from a photo editing site (& me) she dressed them ready for a party! Oh sooo stylish -  these pebbles rock! 

A simple activity which can help encourage creativity, imagination, storytelling, ICT skills, & provide an opportunity to explore emotions as well as new & familiar situations.
