Let your child tell the story of Christ's birth in his/her own words! These Story Starters are an alternative to my traditional Story Stones (see separate listing).

These sets are hand-painted on 1.5-inch (white) or 2-inch round (blue) wooden discs. The 1.5-inch discs are 2 mm thick. The 2-inch discs are slightly thinner. They are lightweight, great for travel, and easy to slip into a bag or purse to keep your child occupied for quiet play. (You also save on cost and on shipping!)

**Select preferred size when you add the item to your cart.

Story Stones and Story Starters can be used by parents or educators to guide a story along and encourage creativity. These adorable tools promote language growth, social communication, and engagement in imaginative play. Just open the bag, pick a disc at random, and begin telling the story!

What a fun way to celebrate Jesus’s birth! Also see my popular Nativity Story Stones here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/562687807/nativity-story-stones-christmas-story?utm_medium=SellerListingTools&utm_campaign=Share&utm_source=Raw&share_time=1517594717000&utm_term=so.slt

HOW DO I USE STORY STONES?

-Pretend Play: These are perfect to encourage pretend play and imaginative play. Give a child a bag of story starters and let him/her use the characters for quiet pretend play. Let their imagination soar!

-Bedtime Stories: Taking a disc from the bag one at a time creates a story by giving you characters and tools to incorporate into the story. This also gives a different storyline each time as the discs are drawn at random.

-Writing Prompts: Use in the classroom as a rewarding activity or as creative writing prompts or story starters. Teachers will love this engaging activity for all elementary ages!

-Travel Activity: a perfect way to pass the time on long trips! Have children take turns drawing discs from the bag and create a story together. Each time a disc is drawn, that person adds onto the story by integrating their figure into the storyline.

Toddlers, school-aged children, parents, teachers, and therapists will all LOVE these story starters. These are a favorite among kids' toys for Christmas gifts and Birthday gifts! They can also be used as stocking stuffers.
