So what do you do with them after you make them? I guess I'm lacking the vision to see what they are for.
I had the same question. One lady said she keeps them in a basket and her kids like to pour them out and make up stories with all the different pictures. Also she takes a small bag of them in with her to the doctors office etc. for her kids to pull out. I think it would make a fun game. Kids could start making up a story and take turns pulling out stones and have to incorporate them in the story. This would only work for smaller children of course.
Wow, I don't think anyone has ever blogged about something I've made before- especially someone so creative! I'm honored! :) (Julie directed me to your blog. . . )I know, it is a little weird to give kids rocks. But, my kids really do love playing with them. My 5 year old makes up stories with them all the time, my 3 year old organizes them into groups, my 2 year old just picks a favorite (usually the cow) and carries it around for a while, and my 16 month old empties and refills the basket over and over again. So far no one have thrown one through a window, but it does worry me a little! They also make darling paper weights- fun teacher gifts. I'm considering making my husband one with either the Dodger's "LA" symbol or the BYU "Y" to keep on his desk at work. . . . just an idea.
I am glad you found my blog Kelly! I came across your blog through Julie's. I love all the cute stuff you have made. And I just love those rocks! I tried to leave you a message on your blog, but could not get it to work. That is why I have used Julie as the middle man :-) It is funny. My 16 month old keeps pulling out the rocks from my bag of rocks I bought at Wal mart the other day and playing with them and they don't even have pictures on them yet. Funny!
