Halloween Story Stones

I LOVE LOVE LOVE POSCA PENS! They are fantastic for rock stone painting.

Let’s Make It

First you will need to rinse your stones in warm water until all of the powder has been removed. Set the stones on a towel and allow them to dry completely.

Use a pencil to sketch the design onto the stone.

Use paint pens to colour the stones.

Use a black paint pen to outline the painted stone.

Allow the paint to dry completely.

You are now ready to use your stones to narrate a story. You can even flip them over and write words on the back of the stones.

If you’d like, create a small canvas bag to store your story stones. Use an alphabet stencil to paint words onto the canvas bag. Allow to dry completely before storing your stones.

If you’d like to protect your stones for many uses, use a spray sealer or Modge Podge.
