How to Play

Collect a range of different sized and shaped stones and let children paint them. Some children may paint a particular design onto the stone, whilst others may try and copy a character, like Peppa Pig or Tigger from Winnie The Pooh. This activity will help pre-school children master fine motor control. It will also help with colour recognition and allow children to experiment with colour mixing.  As an alternative to paint, children can use felt tip pens.

Once the stones are painted and dry, they can be varnished with clear nail varnish (adult input maybe needed here) and displayed on a window ledge, in your garden or as a paper weight.   This is great for all ages and allows children to be as creative as they want.
