Description

Mark your stone using a permanent marker, perhaps write your name or draw a smiley face on it.

Step 1

Hide your stone somewhere in the woodland floor, just like a squirrel would hide acorns in the Autumn.  After a period of time, see if you can find your stone again – if you were a squirrel hunting for its acorns in the Winter would you have gone hungry?

Step 2

Mark your stone using a permanent marker, perhaps write your name or draw a smiley face on it.

Step 3

Use the stones to talk about relationships. Can the stones be kind to one another? Do they look after each other? Do they argue? This can be a great way for a child to express how they feel about certain relationships.

You will need

A permanent marker, small stones.
