Story Stones - Using Chalk!

January 31, 2019

Everyone loves a good story stone!

And they really are so simple to create...

Find a stone, get some paint and paint a picture on it - et voila!

We like making ones with animals and people on particularly. But you can let your imaginations run wild!


Today however, we stripped it right back to decorating just with CHALK patterns and stripes. So simple and easy to do!


What you need:



And a little bit of imagination!

What to do:

Collect some stones.

(Large and flat are the best shapes. And black or white contrast nicely with the chalks!)

Get out some chalks of various colours.

Get mark making! 
AND it doesn't matter if you make a mistake and you can start a whole new pattern whenever you want! Just wipe it off with a damp cloth and start again.
