Glass Stone Stacking & Patterning

We use our glass stones for all sorts of things; in our imaginary play scenes, counting games and as 'money' when playing shops, laid side by side to make roads and write letters.
Yesterday we used them for a fine motor stacking activity and also patterning games so that Bubble could practice sequencing and Squeak her colours.

(you can find bags of these at most dollar or home decor shops)

Bubble found stacking the stones challenging, it gave her fine motor control a good workout!

Both girls enjoyed the patterning activity; we made sequences of varying lengths, making them longer as we went.

A two colour sequence.

Three colour sequence.


  1. Just found your blog and LOVE your ideas! I am a new follower.

  2. I love that that type of coloured stones feel and sound so soothing. That probably sounds ridiculous but I have worked with so many young children who love them :)

  3. Caz. This is my first visit to your blog and I truly admire your posts -- their looks, the color, the feel. You got the real goods here. Thanks for reaching out over at my world. Glad to have found each other!
