- 3-inch, oval or round, flat stones
- Animal patterns
- graphite tracing paper
- acrylic paints
- sealer (optional)
I found front/back and top/bottom animal patterns on this website and printed them out. The original size was perfect for tracing onto flat stones measuring approximately 3 inches. Tip: the front/back patterns are the easiest to start with.
I used this pattern tracing technique to transfer the animal pattern onto each side of a stone, then painted it. (You can also draw the animals instead of tracing them.)
These two-sided critter stones are a fun way to teach children the concepts of top/bottom and front/back.
