A couple of weeks ago it was Nannie Camp at my house all week with my grandchildren and niece Lyndi. One of the crafts we made were cement stepping stones. It was a blast!
All the kids helped with each step of the way. They put their hand prints in the stones before the cement was totally set . After they sat for a day and hardened they painted and decorated them up. It was so much fun watching their creative minds in action!! They gave the finished creations to their Dad’s for Fathers Day.
We had an extra one left over, so I made one for my planter. I stayed with the “hand” theme for mine. But really the possibilities are endless. While researching “Stepping Stones” I became quite inspired to make all kinds of things out of cement. I see more garden art in my future!! It really is a lot of fun. I thrifted some plastic containers ( see picture below) that look like a flower that I am going to use to mold the cement into flower shapes. Can’t wait to get started on that one!
Check out the step by step directions for our Nannie Camp Stepping Stones. I am no expert when it comes to concrete or grout, but they turned out pretty cute I do say!!
This is how I did it………………
Here are stepping stones made by Brayden and Brinsley displayed by their front door!
