Adder stones appear throughout many myths and legends, from Celtic, Welsh and Irish cultures, and even further afield from Russia. They were highly valued by the pagan Druids and were thought to heal a number of ailments, as well as protecting their owner from ill fortune. Adder stones, are essentially stones with a natural hole in them, believed to have been created by adders. Using this positive myth, we developed a craft activity for older children – an adder amulet. Creating the amulet helps to reinforce ID skills and provides a beautiful keepsake to remind them of the positive qualities our ancestors believed adders possessed.
