Help your child paint a cute ladybug rock

These little ladybugs are beautiful, inexpensive to make, and are a fun craft to do with your child on a Saturday morning.

Spring is in the air, which means it’s time to go outside and explore!

Help your youngster pick smooth rocks from your garden, then let them get creative with paint to create beautiful ladybug rock art.

What you need

  • Smooth rocks
  • Red acrylic paint
  • Paintbrushes and or sponge brushes
  • Permanent black marker (or black paint)
  • Googly eyes
  • Glue gun
  • Scrap material

How to make it

  1. Begin by washing the rocks to remove any dirt or dust that has accumulated on them.
  2. Once dry, let your child paint them red; depending on paint type, your child may need to paint the stones more than once.
  3. Once the paint is dry, use a black permanent marker or paint to draw a straight line down the centre of the rock.
  4. Draw seven or more dots on the wings.
  5. Using a glue gun, stick on the googly eyes.  You could also paint them on if you don’t have a glue gun or googly eyes.
