Blarney Stone

This is a stone near Blarney Castle in Ireland that legend says if you kiss, you will become eloquent.

For this craft you need:

  • River stones
  • Green paint
  • Decorative items
  • Glue

Start by painting the stone green. Then let your child decorate as they would like. They can add a face, a rainbow, pot of gold, leprechaun etc. to make it a lucky rock that when kissed with give them the blessing of speech, and eloquence. Have them write their name on one side, and be sure to tell them the history of the Blarney stone as they do the craft. Provide things like paint pens, glitter glue, yarn (to give the stone hair), etc. for their decorating pleasure. When finished it can serve as a token of luck, a decoration, and memento.
