Today I am sharing with you a special project I made for my 4YO daughter this summer for her birthday. She and I love collecting rocks together (in fact that is a hobby that my mom passed on to me). I knew I wanted to do something special with the rocks we collected but the right idea never came to me until just before her 4th b-day in June when I saw an idea on Pinterest for Story Prompt Rocks. Whoa, perfect!
They were a huge hit! My 4YO daughter LOVES using them to tell us stories! The stories always involve that beautiful Phyllis Harris golden retriever because she loves puppies. My 2YO son loves stacking the rocks similar to the Inuit inuksuit stacks and has managed to stack them about 6 high. Thankfully no one has started throwing them yet which is a relief because I was a tad worried about a broken TV or window!
Stamping on rocks was surprisingly fun and easy! To get a clear image on an uneven surface I couldn't use an acryllic block but had to carefully hold in my hand and press the rock down into the stamp. You could make pretty garden decorations with stamped rocks too and with all of the amazing Unity stamps the possibilities are endless!
Unity Stamps used: Sail Away, Create Your Day (house), Dreams That You Dare (rainbow), Pirate Madness (treasure map), Forever Friends (dog), Labeled Oct 2012 KOTM (tree circle), Moment By Moment (butterfly), and All Worth It (queen bee).
