Story Stones are story "starters" which are fun to make and encourage imagination by giving children - and grandmas/ grandpas/parents - components from which they are able to "build" their stories. You will need . . .
- Paper lunch bags one per child
- Palm sized stones - about 12 per child. You could go on a nature hike . . . depending on where you live, if you currently have snow or not, or after the snow melts . . . and gather some nice stones - about the size of the palm of your hand. If you live where it is not easy to find stones, or they are covered by snow, you should be able to find them in garden supply stores.
- Paint and/or permanent ink markers or crayons
- Fabric bags large enough to hold a dozen stones - one per child
Once you have your story stones completed, you may use them to share your favorite Bible Adventures! They will be a lot of fun; not just to make, but to use with your grandchildren as well!
