Story Stones are easy to make and make a fantastic educational and relationship building activity to enjoy for years to come. We keep our story stones in a decorative basket and bring them out for family game nights, camp outs, bedtime story time and more. There are two ways that we play:
One way, is to have everyone choose a stone in your group and sit in a circle. Start with the youngest person first and have them start by adding a sentence to start the story off regarding the stone in their hand. Move around the circle in a clockwise manner and have each person add to the story with an addition that includes the character or item that is on the stone that they picked.
The other way that we have played is to take turns drawing 5 or 6 stones and each person tells a story using all of the story stones that they drew out of the basket. This method is best if you have a nice assortment of story stones in your basket.
