Hand painted Story Stones - Imaginative Toddler Play

You might remember for Miss Daisy's first birthday her very talented Aunty from over at Paint on the Ceiling made her these fabulous blocks!

Well her talents don't end with building block puzzles, these amazing story stones were Miss Daisy's gorgeous handmade Christmas gift for 2011 and she can't get enough of them!

Head over to Hannah's terrific post on these amazing story stones on her blog.

Miss Daisy isn't quite at the point where she is using these to tell me an imaginative story. However, she identifies and names each one confidently. I also noticed her grouping things together in her own ways. I believe this 'toy' will last a very long time and grow and change with her.

Here is some of the fun we had this morning using the story stones.

Thanks Aunty Hannah! They're lots and lots of fun!

We've since made our own Pirate Story Stones which you can check out by clicking on the image below!
