Throwback Crafts: Pet Rocks

Some days we still miss the stray kitten and the creek-caught frog our moms wouldn’'t let us keep when we were growing up. Mom’'s rule for no fur or slime in the house meant our constant companion had to be of the igneous variety. And yet, a #TBT pet rock is ideal in so many ways: you don'’t have to clean up after them, they are pretty quiet, and they don’'t eat much. Make your new best friend!
