"50 ROCKS!!"

What You Need:

  • 50 rocks (either rocks from outdoors or decorative ones from the dollar store)
  • A clear vase or jar
  • A piece of paper
  • Glue

  1. Clean up the rocks and count them out to make sure you have fifty of them.

  3. Decorate the paper with "50 ROCKS!". Make sure it's colorful and eye-catching.
  4. Glue the paper onto the jar/vase.
  5. Place all 50 rocks into the jar/vase.

You could also decorate further by mixing in some sparkles into the vase/jar with the rocks. This is a fun little gift you can use as a decoration at the party, or on their desk at work.

"Anti-Aging Pills"

What You Need:

  • Empty old pill bottle
