There are quite a lot of 'paint style markers' available on the market now, which work well on all manner of materials, including stone, ceramic, wood, plastic, and glass.
I found a brand in the UK, called 'Decopens', which gave a matt acrylic paint type finish, which we were really pleased with!
They worked really well on flat pebbles - doodling stars, stripes, dots, circles and zigzags using red, white and blue.
We also used 3 pebbles to make the word 'happy'.
You could do a whole alphabet if you have a good supply of pebbles at home or live near a beach!
We also decorated cheap wooden clothes pegs, which would be a great way to peg bunting or display your July 4th artworks.!
If you would like to doodle or make some bunting, click on the images below, to download these free ImaginationBox activity sheets, from flipflops to lollipops.
Enjoy the 4th of July folks!
