Turn a simple pebble into a ladybug - just follow our easy painting instructions and your children will be proud of the result! Even preschoolers can create a recognisable ladybird ... and as a paperweight it makes a great gift for mums, dads, or teachers.
You will need:
A large smooth pebble
Red and black acrylic paint
Paint your pebble red and leave to dry.
Now paint a wide black line at one side as the face (look at the photo above to see what we mean). Paint a black line across the middle and dab on some black dots for the wings.
Stick on two wiggle eyes and your pebble ladybug is ready to go!
