Since I’m a recent Mod Podge addict, I’ve been finding ways to combine it with literacy. Hence, story stones! Delight in finding pictures in old magazines, and Mod Podging them onto rocks. Then, use the stones to inspire family storytelling.
Start by collecting large rocks.
Then gather your supplies:
- Mod Podge
- old magazines
Cut out small pictures you like.
First, spread the Mod Podge on the rock.
Then add a picture and spread more Mod Podge on top of it.
Allow to dry for several hours or overnight.
When dry, your picture will be firmly attached to the rock and you’ve made a story stone!
When you have a collection of story stones, you can use them to tell stories with your kids.
(Write down your best stories.)
