Ladybug Rocks using Paint

One of my favorite decorations for my daughter's second birthday were the ladybug painted rocks.  They turned out really cute and literally cost next to nothing to make.

We found the rocks in our woods and washed them well. After drying for a couple of days, we spray painted them red. After that was dry, my son and I painted on black spots with acrylic paint. To create the face we added the largest wiggly eyes we could find and used pipe cleaners for the mouth and antenna.

My plan is to use them as decorations in the garden this summer. Likely the paint will slowly wear away, but I plan on spraying a clear coat to help protect it.
