My 2 year old daughter loves to make pictures out of pebbles. It’s great for developing kids motor skills.


  • 1 piece of flat wood
  • 100 pebbles


  1. Place pebbles on the wood.
  2. Show your child how to make a shape or picture.
  3. Watch your child become creative with pebbles. When finished, tip your pebbles back into the garden.

Notes... Always supervise your child during this activity.

  • EVEN OLDER kids canhelp out with the counting of the rock


  • gorgeous! lovely idea to keep them busy.


  • Simple idea but beautiful and you can even colour the pebbles and make other things very clever


  • Great that you can use the pebbles over and over again

    • You could pebble picture anything, trees, animals, letters


  • Simple but great idea.


  • We love collecting pebbles/shells when visiting the beach and then making these at home.


  • A good way to keep little ones busy.


  • My daughter also loves making ‘tactile’ pictures. We use lots more then just pebbles tho. She even has a scrapbook from when we visited interstate. She’s got different plants ect on pages with a description of where they’re from and what we were doing there. A lovely memento


  • My nephew loves pebbles,a great way to learn also!


  • Great way to learn letters and numbers too.


  • A good idea to bring nature inside in winter too.


  • this would be great while I am gardening


  • my daughter loves collecting rocks i think next time we will do this with them. thanks for the idea :)

    • Watch out if you go away on holidays. You might find you come home with some in your luggage or scattered through your boot. I know a little boy who put some in the bottom of his suitcase. When it was picked up it was really heavy so they decided to investigate. Had they been flying it would have probably been overweight. There was more weight in rocks than he had in clothes. They kept a few of the small most unusual ones and the rest went outside where there were others.


  • Perfect for nature play. You could also try using gum nuts or other found items to add to the variety and interest of the designs. Good simple fun.


  • stay busy kids….. lol….love all such ideas
