I don’t know about your child, but mine (and most of his friends) LOVE picking up rocks. Here is a way to get the rocks out of your house and also refurbish them to make a creative and fun Valentine’s Day gift!
Homemade Valentines-Be My Love Bug
Paint (red, black, and white)
1. Locate a roundish rock and paint the top of it red.
2. Then using black paint create the ladybug’s head and spots.
3. Using white paint, add eyes and other desired details.
4. Put the ladybug and other Valentine’s trinkets inside the bag and seal it with the sign “Won’t You Be My Lovebug?”
