Simple Story Stones and Monster Stones ~ Playing with Nature

Here is a simpler version with permanent markers and liquid paper. Put paint pen to rock and make a simple set of Story Stones.

Choose simple motifs which represent common themes in your child’s play, these examples for this child included – an owl, bird, leaf, tree, grapes, apple, strawberry, snail, caterpillar, ladybird, fish, snail, house, wand, bag, and two children.

Instead of introducing them all at once, try eight to start with and set them out on the mat for your child to ‘discover.’ The idea is that you will add one or two new stones each day, hopefully encouraging their oral stories to continue to grow and develop.
