About the activity
If you already have large pebbles in your garden or driveway, why not choose some favourites with the children and get painting? You can also buy bags of cobbles from DIY stores and garden centres – remember not to collect them from beaches.
Pebble painting is great fun for both adults and children. Paint splodges, stripes, animal faces, bugs, monsters, positive messages etc, then seal them with a coat of varnish/sealer. See how many funny, colourful designs you can create between you!
Use your cool pebble creations decorate the garden. Or why not use them for fun games, too – children can hide their pebbles in the garden for the other players to find. Players can re-hide the pebbles for hours of fun!
