Let your child tell the story of Christ's birth in his/her own words! This is set of hand-painted river stones with line drawings on a tan background. They are a fun, tactile way to learn and talk about the birth of Jesus.


- 9 painted stones with characters from the story of the birth of Jesus (Mary & Joseph, Baby Jesus, Three Wise Men, Magi Gifts, Angel, Star, Shepherd, Sheep, and Stable)

- A canvas drawstring bag for storage

- A printed card explaining the concept of Story Stones

Each stone is painted with acrylics on a river rock and sealed with a protective weather-resistant varnish. Due to the nature of the stones, each set will be different in size and shape.
Story Stones 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 stone at random, and begin telling the story! What a fun way to celebrate Jesus’s birth!

To make your own Nativity Story stones, see this listing in my Family Life Printables Shop: There is also a color-your-own version.

(For a lightweight option, see my Nativity Story Starters on wooden discs:

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

-Bedtime Stories: Taking a stone 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 stones 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 stones from the bag and create a story together. Each time a stone is drawn, that person adds onto the story by integrating their stone into the storyline.
Toddlers, school-aged children, parents, teachers, and therapists will all LOVE these story stones. These are a favorite among kids' toys for Christmas gifts and Birthday gifts! They can also be used as stocking stuffers.
Story stones are recommended for ages 3+ as some of the smaller stones could be a choking hazard if not handled correctly. Supervision of children while using story stones is always recommended.
