Orthodox Pebbles started as an exclusively digital project. As it keeps expanding, its creator Natalie Tzobanakis also ventured into designing and producing real, tangible hands-on teaching tools for the Orthodox classroom and home. A combination of our digital and physical creations guarantees a meaningful and memorable learning experience for the youngest members of our Church.

All of our products are available as retail items at the Draw Near Designs Marketplace, an Orthodox-focused online store.

If you are interested in bulk orders for a church group, a Sunday School, a homeschooling co-op or a bookstore, kindly CONTACT US. Thank you!
