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: https:// www.pgeveryday.com/home/crafts/article/diy-stepping-stones-with-the-kids

It looks like that link has been removed from the original site. It was published in 2017 and the original site has been reorganized. Hopefully, you can find other instructions.

Not sure what age group you are referring to but sounds like a fun experience.
There are several good sites that give lots of ideas in case you plan to decorate your stones. Also, there are some easy instructions on thriftyFun past issues.

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

You might find better instructions here, there are a couple of step by step projects that you might be able to use. The comment you are leaving feedback for was posted over 4 years ago so it is unlikely they will see your comment to respond.
