Spring time craft – ladybird pebbles

Paint some stones and pebbles with your child. I have seen huge painted rocks too! Red acrylic paint (avoid oil based) and once dried, a black permanent marker pen (note: make sure you watch your child and take away the marker afterwards – not a great play pen!). These ladybugs were made by toddlers  – whose Mums I was invited to speak with – recently here from Iran and Iraq. Sweet aren’t they? The children loved this activity and travelled the lady bugs up and down my arms – smiling!
