You can paint a river rock to make a wonderful patriotic pebble. These make great paperweights or decorations.
- A smooth, flat pebble (make sure it's clean)
- Red, white, and blue tempera paint
- Optional – Acrylic varnish or other shiny finish
Paint some white stars on the blue area (in the real US flag there are 50 white stars that represent the 50 US states).
If you’d like a shiny finish, coat with an acrylic varnish after the paint has dried completely.
