Who needs paper when you have pebbles? Let your kids' artisitic sides come to life by creating a bunch of stone characters.
How to make Pebble People
Grab these materials…
A variety of smooth pebbles in all different shapes and sizes
Bold coloured acrylic paints and a small paint brush
Black paint or permanent marker
Varnish (for a finished look)
Looking at your pebble pile and choosing the heads of your characters and their bodies.
Take your pencil and draw the outline of your characters' faces and outfits on the pebble's surface.
Paint your characters in layers. Start with the white of the eyes, the hair, eyebrows, lips and cheek colour.
Sketch the body parts like their arms and hands then paint with the base colour. Wait for your characters to dry.
Take your black marker or black paint and outline the different features adding detail where you feel. Get creative and give your characters some personality. To give your pebble people a finished look, add a layer of varnish.
HERE'S A TRICK
How about sticking magnets to the back of your characters so they can live on the fridge? Try it!
