Rock Babies and Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Welcome back for a new craft and recipe for Week 5!

Rock Baby

The island is full of rocks that you can quickly turn into a fun addition to your cabin family. This week we challenge you to go outside and pick a rock to join you in your summer fun! See full website here.


  • Paint

  • Paintbrushes

  • Rocks

  • Felt

  • Scissors

  • Googley eyes

  • White tacky glue

  • Mini safety pins

  • Black permanent marker

Step 1

Begin by cleaning your rocks with soapy water, and let dry completely. Once dry, give your rocks a coat of paint! You can use literally any color your heart desires here. If you use neon colors like we did, it doesn’t hurt to give the rock a coat of white paint first – this helps the neon colors really pop! Let dry completely.

Step 2

Time to add a cute little baby face! Stick two self-adhesive googley eyes onto the rock and use a black permanent marker to draw on a mouth. Make the mouth a smile, a little O or whatever you like – you can even add eyebrows if you want.

Step 3

To make the diaper, pick a piece of felt and lay it flat on your work surface. Set the painted rock along the edge, centered, with the face above the felt line as shown. Use tacky or hot glue to secure the rock in place here, applying just enough to the back of the rock to hold it down.
