These make wonderful paper weights and could be great dad gifts! We made these as a part of our insect unit.
Mexican Pebble Rocks make the best bugs! I found some of these wonderful stones at a landscape supplier. They are a nice size (palm size.)
I had the children begin by drawing their design in sharpie. This is important for the painting step.
I had the children paint their rocks with acrylic paints.
We let the acrylic dry. You can see the sharpie underneath the paint!
So so cute! I would love to do these next year!
