A lot of the time, the simplest toys can be the most fun, and that’s why I love the idea behind story stones. They’re simple painted rocks with objects that can help build the scene for a story. They encourage kids to be creative and use their imaginations! Here are some great story stone ideas.
Customize your stones to fit your child’s personality. Design the rocks based on their favorite toys, food, and places.
