Darcy miller designs, camp darcy, rocks, ladybugLady bugs are considered lucky symbols—and what’s fortunate about these is that they’re easy for kids (or grown ups!) to create. The cute critters make great paperweights or garden decor, and guaranteed to bring luck to anyone you give them to.

Paint a few other lucky rocks to give the ladybugs some auspicious friends! Try the Evil Eye, a four-leaf clover, the number 7, and glue a shiny penny on top of a rock to round out the group! Or, paint another set of rocks with a different garden symbol—bumblebees or daisies—and you’re ready to play Tic Tac Toe.
