There are those ideas that you come across that capture your whole heart. One day I was surfing the web for more ideas for storytelling and came upon Red Bird Crafts and Emily Neuburger. Emily designed the coolest idea – story stones. You must click over to her blog and take a peek at her story stones.
These stones are so endearing and beautiful. She has a great tutorial on how to make them. She also sells them. I am going to buy a set from her because there is nothing in the world like owning an original set – it will have Emily’s special fairy dust!
Anyway, I knew instantly, I had to make a set of story stones for several of the fairy tales that I bring to the classroom. And – I knew I did not have the time to make the characters from scratch. I used images I already had. You can also search copyright free images in Google or Yahoo.
