Instructions for Easy to Make Stepping Stones

Is there any easy way to make stepping stones? I am looking for a easy craft to do with the older grandchildren. What supplies would I need, what type of concrete, would I need a finishing spray and also how thick should the form be for the stones? I am thinking of using a thin plastic form that you can purchase at the garden store that you are used under potted plants. Any easy steps or suggestions that you might have would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

You line molds with petroleum jelly and put concrete mix in. P&G everyday has the instructions here: www.pgeveryday.com/.../diy-stepping-stones-with-the-kids

we did this project with our grands last summer,Gather pie pans,buy quick creet at lowes mix it with water fill the pie pans up smooth them out then we used old jewelry rhinestones pebbles ,sticks acorns or any thing you have look in your junk drawers .we let the kids decorate however they chose .they all turned out great oh and sea shells too, we are going to use them as a pathway into our back yard they are so cute let them dry for two days then remove them from the pan.make sure you press the objects in deep so they wont fall out it if they do just glue them back in place
