The Tweeting Galah Story Stones
How it all came about
I came across story stones when I was scrolling through Pinterest. I love how cute they look, and how tangible they make re-telling stories. So I decided to have a go myself! My first attempt (pictured below) was four stones that represent each of the main characters from The Tweeting Galah. I love how they’ve turned out, and can’t wait to add more to my collection – extra side characters and key props from each story so students can re-enact the entire story themselves.
Making the Stones
The stones were relatively easy, and super fun to make.
What was needed:
- Smooth white stones (I purchased a small bag from Bunnings)
- Colourful paint
- Mod Podge
- Googly eyes
It was simply a matter of painting the stones and then painting over the dried paint with mod podge to give it a smooth, shiny finished look. I used my trusty hot glue gun to attach the googly eyes and then had some fun decorating each stone to look more like each character.
