You will need 28 pebbles or small pieces of wood that you can collect during a walk in nature.  

When you get home, wash the stones well and let them dry. Then paint them with acrylic or gouache paint. Choose 7 different colours and paint the pebbles as shown below. You can start to play as soon as the paint dries. 

Practical information for parents:  

  • Careful! Before you start painting, make sure you have properly protected the table you are going to be working on. You can also make a box for the dominoes and use the paint to decorate it colourfully. 
  • How much time does it take? Collecting stones, painting them, letting the paint dry and playing can easily take half a day. Once you have your own domino set, you play whenever you want.
