Imagine illustrating your own story using stones.
This story stone painting allows you to do just that!
While painting pictures on stones the other day a great idea popped up.
What if I used stones to illustrate my stories?
Story Stone Painting Materials:
All I needed were stones, paint, paintbrushes and a permanent liner.
We use paint like this, it works well to paint on stones!
I found some white stones with flat surfaces and made sure I gave them a good wash before I painted them. I used craft paint and when the paint was dry, I gave them a final coat of craft varnish as well. The varnish is for extra protection – but completely optional.
My story goes like this….
A little elephant loved to smell sunflowers.
They smelt so good and they grew so tall. He did not even have to bend down to smell them.
But the bees also loved the sunflowers.
They collected the pollen in their little pollen baskets.
But oh dear! The elephant sneezed while smelling the flowers and sneezed all the stripes off the bees.’
Now, imagine how you can end this story…
There are endless ideas when painting story stones.
Add a special message on the back of your stones and hide them for your friends to find!
Enjoy, and have fun painting your ‘story stones.’
Story stone painting can be educational, inspiring and loads of fun.
