I used to make all of my worry stones at home and then bring them into school. However, last year I had an epiphany and have had the students help make them! The kids love it because they made it themselves so it holds even more value to them. I have also had students in my friendship lunch bunches help me make them this year because they just think it is a fun craft and they get to play with the clay. Some students have really become quite creative with their designs!
Below are step-by-step photo directions to make your own worry stones.
Step 2: Push the clay together to form a ball.
Step 3: Roll and twist the clay in your hand to make a 'snake'.
Step 6: Press your thumb into the ball until you have an indentation that you can rub your thumb in.
