This week we've been reading Only One You by Linda Kranz. The story is illustrated using photographs of painted stones, so after we read the book we decided to make some painted stones too.
First of all we washed the stones. This was an activity in itself as Burt loved the soapy bubbles and scrubbing the stones, laying them out to dry and then watching the stones change colour as they dried out. Once the stones were ready we chose our colours and got painting, mixing, splashing and colouring. The results were so pleasing and the activity inspired lots of conversation, we will definitely be doing this again.
