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.
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!
