My son Rowan made these stones. He collected them from our walks on the beach. He painted them all on his own, and it was his idea to add clumps of glitter. When he was finished the project, he cried “Fairy Stones!”, and that was that. I love these stones. They are all his work, and I am a proud parent. One day when he was at school, I arranged his stones in this little fairy garden for the windowsill in his room.
The steps involved in making this DIY are quite easy on the parent. Parents, do nothing, well very little. Take them to the beach, or the park, or a lake, or the backyard, and collect. Pick up stones, or shells or branches, and bring them home. You can supply the paint, the glitter, the glue, and spread it out so everything is within good reach. Oh, and give them some paint brushes, they will need those too. But then, step back, ease off, make a good cup of tea, and let them play.
