Stepping Stones

Stepping Stones
Still trying to figure out what to make for Mother’s Day? Well I have the craft for you.  No really these were so easy to make and they only take a few hours to dry so you can have a great homemade mother’s day gift by the end of the day.
When I decided to make these I wanted to try several different ways to actually make the stepping stones, so I used a reusable circle mold, a round cake pan, and a flower mold.  I also put wax paper in the two round molds and did not use the wax paper in the flower mold to see if that made it easier to remove the stones.
My findings are that all three molds worked great and the wax paper did make it a little easier to remove the stone but not a ton easier.  Although I think if I did not use the wax paper with the cake pan I would not have gotten the mold out so if you use a cake pan or anything that is NOT made for this line it with the wax paper so it is easier to remove the stone once dry.
We used the stepping stone mix you can buy at the craft store, but I think you can do this with cement if you have it too (probably a cheaper option).

Stick to mix the cement
Stepping Stone Mold (reusable mold or cake pan)
Wax paper (to line mold)
Glass Stones (optional to decorate your stone)

Directions

Line your molds with some wax paper.
 Mix your cement or stepping stone mix, then pour into molds.
 If doing foot and hand prints make those, you can also use a Popsicle stick to write something in the cement if you choose.
 If you choose use some pretty stones or other items to decorate your stepping stones (make sure to press in about half way so they stay in place).
 After it is all decorated leave it to dry (we let them dry overnight but you don’t have to wait that long) then just pull the wax paper out and you have a beautiful homemade stepping stone that would make a great Mother’s Day gift.

    So sweet! We made these with my kids when they were tiny. Now, they are 11 and 13 and still in our garden. They love looking at how small their hands were. Great memories being made – love it! :)

    Hi,
    I loved your flower Mould you made with your kids. I live in melbourne and have been looking everywhere for a mould like that to do with my 2 girls. Can you let me know where you found yours.
    Much appreciated for your time.
