"Very Hungry Caterpillar" stones

Mumblers launched this week!  It’s a melting pot of great online content relevant to Aussie mums.  I’m a regular blogger on the team, so I’d love you to follow me over there once a month or so. Here’s a snippet from my post about story stones.  My daughter and I have had a wonderful time in the garden with these simple stones, so I hope you give them a go with your kids!

Literacy isn’t always about books.  There are countless ways you can explore language with young children without a picture book in sight.  For example, stones have been used in different cultures throughout the ages to tell stories to children and adults alike.  This week my three year old and I made some simple story stones of our own and headed out into the garden…

  1. I LOVE This! I have made story type stones in the past but I used stickers and sprayed with WASCO to protect but I LOVE this, being the naturalist I am, because it brings authenticity to the activity. Well, I guess I am going to have to go out and get some more stones because I am going to redo all mine now. Thanks so much for sharing!
    Hugs, Deb
