Black Rat Paperweight Craft

As part of our Little Leafers Autumn Nature Study Class, I like to make a craft available each week.

Week three’s theme was rats.

Little Leafers Nature Study Autumn Session, rat week, from Suzy Homeschooler (5)

Black Rat Paperweight Craft


  • smooth black stones
  • pink nail polish*
  • Sharpie markers

*pink nail polish can be substituted with pink paint, however standard paint will take longer to dry than nail polish


  • Wash and thoroughly dry the black stones.
  • Draw outlines of rat features (ears, tail, etc..) onto the stones with Sharpie markers.
  • Use pink nail polish to fill in the outlines of the rat ears and tail on the stone.
  • Allow 5-10 minutes to dry.
