I was in Michael's, walking around with my 40% off coupon in hand, when I saw a bag of river rocks. Since our tot school theme this week is owls, my first thought when I saw them was to make owl counters.
They were super easy to make and cheap (gotta love that)! All you need is some polished river rocks, I purchase a bag for $1.50, and some Sharpies.
Instead of owls you could draw cats, dogs, bunnies, turtles, there are just so many possibilities.
