This is such a brilliant idea!! Well done Rachel for setting this up!!!!
Whilst being away for a few days with the family, we came across a fab craze in Dorset which I think our children here in Basingstoke and Hants will absolutely love.
I have set up a facebook group called Basingstones.
Everyone can join in the fun, young and old, and anyone in between. You just paint a stone, write ‘Basingstones’ on it and hide it somewhere. Perhaps in one of our lovely parks here in Basingstoke, by a bench, under a tree, anywhere you like. The idea is that someone will find your stone and smile. It may even brighten their day! Hopefully they will post a photo on our facebook group page so we can all see how far our stones travel. Then our Basingstone finder can either re-hide the stone, or keep it and replace it with a new stone.
You can paint the stone however you wish, perhaps with a pretty pattern, a fun cartoon character, an inspirational quote or an artistic design, for example. Sharpie pens, permanent markers, nail polish, paints and varnish all work really well.
It is encouraging us as a family to get outdoors, be creative and spread some joy. It has certainly kept us busy and entertained this half term break and without damaging the bank balance.
I hope everyone loves the concept as much we do and gets involved and has some fun.
