Total Time 1 hour Ages all-ages

Turn a pile of stones into ornamental artworks that will spruce up a garden bed, a potted plant or a windowsill.

What you'll need

  • Small stones
  • Acrylic paint and brushes

Use stones to create colorful and helpful markers for a vegetable or flower garden. Simply paint a carrot, some peas, or maybe a sunflower on a stone to place at the end of a plant's row.

How to make it

  1. Start by scouting in the backyard for smooth stones in various shapes and sizes.

  2. Imagine what each stone's shape lends itself to. For example, a wide, rounded stone would make a good fat cat. Or perhaps a group of stones will inspire a family of critters like a brood of ducklings.

  3. Use the paints to realize your artistic vision.
