Making Valentines Love Stones

This week Sylvia and I made some special Valentines Love Stones for John. I’ve been wanting to do some stone art with Sylvia for sometime and with Valentines only a few weeks away it was the perfect opportunity to do a fun activity together.

We purchase a large bag of cobble stones from a hardware store so we have plenty of stones to use in the coming weeks. You can collect them at a local beach or go searching for stones if your on a budget but with my health as it currently is, buying them was the best method for us.

We used some pens and decided to design our own love hearts. I let Sylvia use her imagination and draw whatever she wanted.

My daughter really enjoyed this mini project and it really didn’t take too long to complete. Sylvia came up with the idea of adding spots and dots to the hearts and then adding words.

I’m hoping in the coming weeks and months to create some Story stones so this for us was a great first attempt to draw on stones.

Yes it was a basic and simple activity and we kind of invented it as we have never seen Valentines stones before but we wanted to make something unique for my husband.

We will be giving John these stones on Valentines and he can place them on his desk as paperweights to remind him of how much we love him.

We then went on to design some other stones as Sylvia currently has an interest in playing doctors. She drew a white cross and coloured one in green, creating a first aid stone which was rather imaginative.

I’m looking forward to doing more stone art with Sylvia and I think the more we practice the better we will get. It sure was a fun activity and can be done at very little cost.

    These are really cute and would make fabulous decor for the home. Will have to gram some and get my kids to create things with them.
