Story Stones Rock

I originally saw this idea on Family Fun's website:
I thought it was such a great idea-- not only would it be fun to gather the rocks and design them, but it would also be fun to play with them:  make up stories, put on "rock" shows, play games with them. So, I added it to my Summer To Do list.
Then over at Fairy Dust Teaching (one of my first and favorite frequented blogs!), they started popping up a lot.  Sally first mentioned them from another site called Red Bird Crafts:

And then simplified the activity by using paper cut outs, printed graphics, and/or scrapbook paper and modgepodge:
Sally says that her students went nuts over the Story Stones and one even came up with an even simplier way to make her very own rocks by using stickers:
Which gave her the idea to make birthday rocks and letter rocks using stickers as well:


As you can see, the ways to make them and their uses are both limitless!  I hope you enjoy making rocks with and/or for your little ones this summer!  I'll post mine when my boys and I make ours.  Thanks to Red Bird Crafts and Fairy Dust Teaching for the inspiration!
