DIY Stepping Stones

Making your own Stepping Stones is easy. For the most part all you need is concrete. If you want to make them decorative you just need to find some items to embed in the concrete while it is still wet. I suggest looking for things that are smooth or the edges can be sunk down into the concrete so that it is not jagged and doesn't catch on the bottom of shoes or hurt their feet.

We used throwaway tin foil cake tins from the Dollar Tree. We put our concrete that we mixed in a bucket with a stick inside these cake tins. Because the cake tins from the Dollar Tree that are disposable are very flexible it was easy to pop out the Stepping Stones. Otherwise if you have a solid mold they might not come out as easy

Allow them to dry for at least 24 hours so the concrete can cure before taking them out. We used this project as a family finding time to be together and make something that shows our personality outside our cabin.
