(TIP: Learn to paint rock sets yourself in my Rock Painting Masterclass:
Let your child tell a story about Christmas in his/her own words! This set
includes traditional images of Christmas to spark the imagination! Pull a stone
from the bag and tell a story or sing a Christmas song! Invent your own if you
- 10 painted stones with traditional characters from popular Christmas songs
(Rudolph, Santa, a Stable, a Star, Snowflakes, a Christmas Tree, a Snowman,
Silver Bells, Holly, and the phrase "Merry Christmas!").
- A muslin bag for storage
- A printed card explaining the concept of Story Stones
Each stone is painted with acrylics on a natural river rock and sealed with a
protective varnish. They measure 1.5 - 2 inches in width.
Due to the nature of the stones, each set will be different in size and
texture. Background color is mixed (white, blue, and sky blue).
Story Stones can be used by parents or educators to guide a story along and
encourage creativity. These adorable tools promote language growth, early
literacy, social communication, and engagement in imaginative play. Just open
the bag, pick a stone at random, and begin telling the story!
What a fun way to celebrate Christmas! (You might also be interested in my

HOW DO I USE STORY STONES?
-Pretend Play: These are perfect to encourage pretend play and imaginative
play. Give a child a bag of story stones and let him/her use the characters for
quiet pretend play. Let their imagination soar!
-Bedtime Stories: Taking a stone from the bag one at a time creates a story by
giving you characters and tools to incorporate into the story. This also gives
a different storyline each time as the stones are drawn at random.
-Writing Prompts: Use in the classroom as a rewarding activity or as creative
writing prompts or story starters. Teachers will love this engaging activity
for all elementary ages!
-Travel Activity: a perfect way to pass the time on long trips! Have children
take turns drawing stones from the bag and create a story together. Each time a
stone is drawn, that person adds onto the story by integrating their stone into
Toddlers, school-aged children, parents, teachers, and therapists will all
LOVE these story stones. These are a favorite among kids' toys for Christmas
gifts and Birthday gifts! They can also be used as stocking stuffers.
PLEASE NOTE: Story stones are recommended for ages 3+ as some of the smaller
stones could be a choking hazard if not handled correctly. Supervision of
children while using story stones is always recommended.
