Print the template out on cardstock and cut it into four separate cards, then have fun making your pet rock. Hot glue googly eyes and other craft supplies to the river stones to give them each a unique personality. My daughter and her friend used the hot glue gun on their own in these pictures, but you know your kids best. Use common sense and supervise your kids.

When your kiddos have made as many pet rocks as they need for their Valentines – along with some extras for themselves – have them hot glue the rocks to the cards you’ve prepared.

Who are your kids going to give them to? Their classmates? Homeschool co-op friends? Or are they going to mail them to friends near and far?

Stay tuned for more fun nature-themed Valentine’s Day ideas.
