Story Stones

You definitely can’t sit around the campfire without telling stories! I wanted to encourage my girls to make up some of their own so we made Story Stones to make it a little more fun. I covered the table with a large paper roll found at the craft store. This allowed me to put the paint directly on the table and was great for easy clean up. I let them paint a few of their own while I painted more detailed pictures of things they would love onto my stones. Believe me I am no artist but it was fun. After they were all dry I stuffed the drawstrings bags with different stones and we all took turns picking a bag. When it was our turn we had to lay out our stones and make up a short story using all the pictures on our stones. It made for such a fun time and a lot of laughs!

About Jamie

Hi! My name is Jamie with Five Whimsy Lane and I like to make things pretty. Parties especially. Glitter enthusiast...lover of all things chocolate & a partynista. Is that a word? Wifey to one fabulous husband and mother to 3 amazing children, Caleb, Leilani & Olivia who are my main inspiration. What more could a girl ask for? When I'm not scouring Pinterest for hours (I'm working honey, I promise) you can find me digging in my fairy garden, dancing with the kids or cleaning my Dyson. Who wants a dirty vacuum? My love for parties began over 10 years ago when I was planning my sons 1st birthday. I realized I had a huge passion for details (some might call it an obsession). After many years and wonderful birthday memories later Sweet Jelly Parties was born. Children's events and baby showers are our specialty but I'm a lover of all reasons to celebrate. Anniversaries, holidays, graduations, it's a Friday so let's throw a party.....You name it, I'll glitter it. Every once in a while though I like to trade in my juice box for a glass of wine which is why I'm also a Certified Wedding Planner.
