My daughter loves these bees and ladybug crafts that we made of stones. The majority of the work I did on my own as she was to little to paint, but she helped on her own way. Most important, when we were all done she loved to play with them outside and carry them around. They still sit in our little fairy garden and every now and then are a great inspiration for play.
For this stone painting project you will need:
– nicely shaped round stones that you can gather on a nature walk or purchase if you wish
– red, white, and yellow acrylic paint
– black permanent marker
– Mod Podge Acrylic Sealer
–googly eyes (optional)
You may use black acrylic paint instead of a marker, but I find marker is much easier to draw straight lines and dots.
If you intend to put painted rocks outside in the garden, apply one to two spray Mod Podge sealant coats and allow to dry. This will make a protective waterproof shield and keep your stone bugs in great shape.
Bees and Ladybug rock crafts would make great rock paintings for kids of any age and after they are made, can be used as outdoor toys, like tic tac toy, ladybug pet rock or decorations in your garden.
