There are many different ways to use Story Stones. Here are just a few…
Story Stones are used to promote story-telling and communication through imagination. Each set, containing either six or twelve Stones, is placed face down.
A Story Stone is turned over and the image acts as a prompt to guide the story teller for the first part of the story. Turn over the next Stone and the story continues…
Describe what you see? Where does it come from?
How did it get here? What happens next?
Children can be guided by the images on the Stones to create a world of dress up and play. The script is influenced by the images they see and the story they create is acted out, as each Stone adds a new dimension to their imaginative play.
Use the Stones to write unique stories. Children can become the author of their own tales. This can be invaluable in improving handwriting, spelling and reading. Story Stones make learning fun!
