A FEW SIMPLE STEPS:
The method to create this craft is simple and self-explanatory in the picture.
So we'll only offer a few tips and techniques!
Select pebbles with a fairly smooth surface - easy to paint.
Pebbles with a slight point will make a lovely little face.
Draw the shapes on the pebbles with a soft pencil.
Playschool Teachers can perhaps do this beforehand. Acrylic paint works well on this type of surface, it is thick and waterproof.
Add a little bit of white paint to colors to make the paint less see-through when painting it on the pebbles.
You may need two coats of paint for the perfect finish - apply the first coat and wait for it to dry.
Wash the brush out between colors.
Allow different colors to dry before painting the next color.
Use the color ideas in the picture below to create different ladybug pebble crafts!
