Nativity Story Stones

We’ve shared quite a few painted stones and story stones ideas and the tutorial for these nativity story stones are ones that I’ve shared over on Rainy Day Mum. You can see the full story stones tutorial here. I was really nervous when I first made them as my drawing skills are…. well I didn’t even get to take my GCSE in art lets put it that way! The good thing about these Christmas nativity story stones though is that I’ve made them super simple so they really are achievable – anyone can draw a sheep or a manger, especially if you have a little practice on paper first!


Want to make these story stones? Make sure that you bookmark this page or pin the image at the bottom so that you don’t forget to make them!

We’ve made lots of story stones but these Christmas story stones might be my favourites? Plus I’ve got a couple of tips there if your drawing skills are less than awesome so that you can still make great drawings.
