I’m a huge fan of Thrive 360 Living’s creative blog for young children full of inspiration and unique craft ideas so I was excited to see founder and mom Sam open up an Etsy shop featuring her signature painted story stones.

Story stones are kits of hand painted stones which feature lively scenes on them. Think of story stones as creativity aids. They can be used as props for storytelling, as figures that can be paired with drawing and painting, and so much more. I love how open ended the stones are — by helping guide your child’s imagination, they can lead to some seriously fun and creative play! Story stones are currently sold in themed collections, such as “under the sea”, “outer space”, and “princess and fairytales”.

You can purchase story stones on Thrive 360 Living’s Etsy store. The store also features a selection of handmade Montessori inspired toys.
