Smile Fun Craft for Kids

Hi All,

I thought I'd share a fun craft you can do with your kids. You can make Lady Bugs and Bumble Bees with Rocks (from the garden), red, yellow and black paint, pipe cleaners and google eyes.

Paint the rocks red (for lady bugs) and yellow (for bumble bees). Let dry completely. Use a Q-Tip to dot black spots on the lady bug backs and paint black strips on the bumble bee backs. Hot glue google eyes in place. Form wings out of the pipe cleaners (black) and hot glue in place.

I used a spray sealer on them so that the kids could put some outside in the back yard in their 'rock garden'. You can also put some in your potted plants or use them as a paper weight.

Have Fun!
