Story stones and August nature table

After reading about these story stones on Counting Coconuts I thought it would be something both L and I would really enjoy.  L still brings out her Peter and the Wolf puppets and wants to put on the puppet show all  the time.
One of our favorite stories that I tell L when she's warming up from swimming in the ocean is The Enormous Turnip.  This was the first story I decided to do with our stones we collected from the beach.  I just used acrylic paint and then covered the stones with a layer of Modge Podge.

While I was painting those L was painting stones to represent the animals from Brown Bear, Brown Bear.  Once they were finished she matched them up to her book.
We then put them in order all around our nature table.  The little girl represents the children : )
We also made some colored sand the same way we made colored rice and added some glitter.  It looks much more spectacular in real life!
We Modge Podged some sea glass to make it sparkle!
Hope you are all enjoying summer's radiant, heart warming sunshine!  Happy story telling.
