Garden Rocks for Grandma

Still looking for an idea for Mother's Day for your kiddos to give their Grandma's???
 My Little Man and nephew just spent the morning making these:
Ladybug garden rocks for the leading ladies in our lives!!  My sister and I wanted a way to honor OUR mom's through our kiddo's.  Our Mom loves to garden and has the greenest thumb of anyone I know.... so we painted these pretty rocks so she can think of her grandchildren when she sees them!
We started out with 3 oval rocks and painted them red. 
To help guide the kids when painting the spots, I painted a line down the middle of each rock.  I also painted the eyes and mouth.
The boys painted the spots using black paint and a cue-tip.  We only helped a little!  🙂

When the black paint was dry, we sprayed each rock with a coat of sealant to protect the rocks from weathering in the outdoors.

All done!
We made cards with a cute poem on the inside.  The poem is so perfect!  When I was a teacher, my students made these each year for their Mom's on Mother's Day, but I think this will work just perfect for Grandma!!
Of course you can download the ladybug poem here if you want to make your own!!  Enjoy your weekend!

    Very cute! We're planning to paint rocks later this summer so I will keep this in mind. Love the ladybug rocks & I'm sure my kids will too. I'm hosting a giveaway for a Barefoot book & CD (ends today) if you're interested!
