Emotion Stones

Happy Or Sad, Wailing Or Glad - How Do You Feel Today? This is a lovely idea for Book Week based on ’Smile/Cry by Tania McCartney. Ask the children to illustrate a range of emotion on the stones, then brainstorm a variety of situations that correspond with the range of emotions. The designs can be as simple or as detailed as you wish.

  • Step 1Before you begin, plan out your designs on a spare piece of paper. Look to our designs above for inspiration or come up with your own.
  • Step 2Once you are happy with your designs, paint them onto your pebbles. Allow to dry.
  • Step 3Outline your designs with black fineliner to help your design pop. Your stones are now ready!
