Kids love activities that improve their imagination!
What can be more beautiful and relaxing than painting or drawing?
In this article we will present you a DIY mini project that you may try at the end of the week or during holidays together with your children – colored stones.
All these things can be found in shops but you may also enjoy the pleasant breeze on the seashore and collect in the same time some stones.
You know of course that children love to collect different things, so why don’t turn them into didactic material.
Depending on the size of the stones you can try different drawings: from the easiest to the more difficult and complex such as a snake or a snail, a lady bird or a dragon fly, even a small fish.
Kids will love this activity!
The first step would be to paint the stone using only one color and then you may try a small easy drawing such as a heart – it is quite easy to draw it.
A penguin for instance can be drawn be applying black on one side and white on the other side, two eyes and an orange nose and here is your small penguin.
A lady bird can also be drawn.
Three-quarters will be painted red, draw two eyes using white and then draw a line to contour the mouth.
Let the red paint get dry and draw black points to finish the project.
