Ideas on How and Where the Story Stones can be used:
1. Ideal for long car rides. Once eye spy is well and truly played, let your child choose a stone and tell everyone in the car a story. Let the scenery around them help them create, imagine and story tell an amazing story. No iPad’s needed for this car ride!
2. Join together and write down the page turner story as your child transcribes it. Then find images and print the story and give out as a gift from your child.
3. Great for learning English and Drama subjects at an early age. By using the stones, ask your child to sort the stones into scenes, characters and props. They then build a story from beginning, middle to end through their ideas and imagination.
4. Halve the stones, let your child create a story with their half and you create a story with the other half. Then mesh the two stories together and laugh together at how funny the stories combined turned out to be.
5. Have a day every week, where you dedicate the morning or afternoon to Story Stones Fun and then host a special production in the evening to show to Dad, Grandma, Grandpa and the list of guests goes on.
6. Let your child draw and design the scene’s sets for their stones story.
7. Let your child use their imagination to use the stones how they see fit.
