This is a great emergent literacy activity. Perfect for play individually or as a small group - groups of kids can create stories together by taking turns picking different stones - or out of a mystery bag and having to create a story about what is on the stone. I love these!

Kids Get Crafty: 5 Little Ducks went Swimming One Day

What a great idea for stone art. The grandgirls will love making these and making up stories with them. We can also use them in our fairy garden pond.

Can't wait for the April snow to melt here in MN.
