My son had a blast using these stones as a jumping off point to tell his own tales! Native Americans often used symbols to tell stories. Some symbols looked just like the concepts or objects they represented and others were more abstract. My son and I went to a Native American tribe's website to look up symbols so that we could make our own (super simple!) storytelling stones.
