Rainbow Stacking Stones

Stacking stones are meant to be very calming. I didn’t really put this activity together for that reason (although if it helps calm YC and EC when they’re angry then that is a bonus). I put it together as a building challenge for BB. We play a lot with building blocks and dominos, so these rainbow stacking stones are just another element to add to his creative play.

Make sure you follow my activities board for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own rainbow stacking stones you will need:

  • Smooth river stones
  • Acrylic paint
  • Modge Podge

We spent a week of the summer holidays at the beach in Cornwall, which was the perfect opportunity to find smooth flat stones.

Before you start painting them leave them to soak for a bit in some boiling water. This will help to kill any bacteria that maybe lurking on them.

Of course you don’t have to paint them, but I really liked the idea of rainbow stacking stones. They are more likely to draw BB’s attention.

Acrylic paints work best for this. Add thin coats to each stone. Make sure you wait for them to dry before adding extra layers.

To keep the paint from chipping I added a final layer of modge podge to each stone.

BB found it hard to build the tower above a couple of stones, but he certainly liked knocking my stacks down.
