How to Make Story Stones
For your story stones, find a good selection of smooth pebbles from the beach, if you have one near you. If not, you can pick pebbles up from your local garden centre.
1. Decide what you would like in your story – there should be a mixture of objects, places and characters for the stones to work. Draw out the outline of each picture onto the pebbles using black Sharpie.
2. Use a fine brush to fill in the pictures using acrylic paint and leave to dry. Add a coat of varnish to give the pebbles a nice shiny finish.
3. To decorate the story stones bag, use pencil to write onto the fabric then go over with Sharpie. Add a little picture of a story book to complete.
