The magic and charm of Story Stones are a great way to encourage imagination and creativity, increase vocabulary, and improve communication and listening skills. Best of all.....they're fun!
Working along with children, or letting them get creative on their own, remove a stone from the bag and begin the story. Take turns drawing stones and adding each new element to the adventure. The stones can be used over and over and no two stories will ever be the same!
Each set of stones comes in a unique drawstring bag. The sets include 20 to 25 stones each. Every stone is an original hand-painted design and the pictures will vary between each set. An unpainted stone is included to encourage your child to create their own character to add to the set. I use ordinary acrylic craft paint. The stones are then sealed with a non-toxic vanish.
***Please bear in mind, these stones are small and intended for supervised play with children over the age of 3.
A fun activity for children to engage in with siblings, friends, parents, teachers, grandparents, or even alone.
Exploring a deeper level, these stones may allow an adult to observe the emotional world of the child. As children invent stories they may also project what they are feeling inside.
The sets include character(s), structures, weather, tools, transportation, weapons, "bad guys", friends, landforms, etc.
For example: The Camping set includes: moon/sun, storm cloud, pond, waterfall, mountains, forest, rabbit, snake, bear, owl, fish, boy, canoe, tent, camper, hatchet, flashlight, sleeping roll, lantern, wiener-on-a-stick.
Sets range from $25 - $30 plus shipping
