Painting Stones

My boys have been obsessed with stones ever since they were little. They tried to eat them as babies, have thrown them into water, dug them up with their trucks and dropped them into holes. We decided to get creative with our current stone collection and paint them. We sat on our doorstep and painted caterpillars, spiders, cars and butterflies. We left them to dry on the windowsill and then hid some in our neighbours plant pots as a surprise! I have collected enough small smooth stones to create a set of numbers and the alphabet. Jacob has been coming home from school singing the French alphabet recently so a letter set would be fun to help his learning. I also love the idea of painting some story stones to inspire storytelling.

What have you painted recently?
