This summer, I’ve had the honor of participating in Rainy Day Mum‘s Story Book Summer series — it’s always fun to do activities that are based on a book! Toby and I have enjoyed reading several renditions of the stone soup story during our forays to the library. Most recently, we picked up Marcia Brown’s Stone Soup (#afflink), but we’ve enjoyed more modern adaptations such as Eric Kimmel’s Cactus Soup (#afflink) too.
Since making stone soup “for real,” Toby has also been hard at work in his pretend kitchen. His concoctions have been an amalgam of stone soup and shepherd’s pie… such as stone soup pie, or shepherd’s pie soup.
I’ll share a few pictures, but be sure head over and read Story Book Summer – Stone Soup for more pictures, and the recipe! Click on any image below to enter gallery view.
And finally, I just found a neat looking Stone Soup board game (#afflink) that I bet my toddler would love. It’s a memory card game with the added twist of “fire’s out” cards — you have to gather all the ingredients for making stone soup before you get too many “fire’s out” cards.
