Rocks and stones inspirational quotes could prove useful for teaching kids short story writing or for helping children learn paragraph developing skills, depending of course on the age and language level of the kids. To achieve this, rocks and stones inspirational quotes should be used as story or paragraph starters or story titles or even as the main idea around which the paragraph or story should be built. And it is not only kids that could exercise their writing skills this way but it’s a good idea for grownups with a creative writing hobby as well. For adults, two or more rocks and stones inspirational quotes and proverbs could be used to write a single short story – each one of them representing a character or scene in the story, or used as sayings of characters. The more rocks and stones inspirational quotes we choose to use, the more difficult it gets to come up with a story – hence, more advanced writing skills are required. Of course, the same applies to writing poems inspired by rocks and pebbles proverbs, if you wish to express yourself through poetry instead.
A great idea for improving childrens’ story-writing skills is to use some interesting-looking or weird beach stones (of various shapes and sizes) to write a couple of the quotes given below. Then ask them in groups (or pairs) to make up a short story that explains where the inspirational beach stones came from and who (one person or more) they were meant for. Finally, have them imagine how these inspiring beach stones changed/improved the lives of peoples they were given to.
Apart from the above, pebbles and rocks and stones inspirational quotes also offer you a different way to tap into your creativity to produce unique, personalized arts and crafts too. Make anything from wall-art to greeting cards or – why not? - innovative stone jewelry. Use the items you handcraft for home décor or offer them as gifts to your loved ones. Handmade art and crafts inspired from these rocks and stones inspirational quotes are also an unusual, interesting gift choice for people you need to say “thank you” to. Or make them just for the fun of it, to nurture your imagination or to “craft” away your boredom.
Another idea using beach rocks and beach pebbles, which is also an easy activity to do with children, is to make inspirational decorative rocks and pebbles. Use a special pen to write the rocks and stones inspirational quotes given below on the back side of the beach pebbles or the larger beach rocks. Then have kids draw a small picture on each (inspired by the quote or proverb chosen). When you’ve finished use a protective varnice and display them indoors or outdoors (patio, yard or garden) – they make beautiful décor items and they’re inspiring for your guests too.
So, here’s a list of rocks and stones inspirational quotes and proverbs for you to use for writing short stories and poems, making art and crafts and for other creative ideas and projects.
