Mother’s Day Craft: Stepping Stones

You will need a small mold for these stepping stones and below are some suggestions as to what you can use.

Mother’s Day Craft: Stepping Stones

What you need

Pre-Mix cement
Petroleum jelly
Bucket for Cement mix
Mould



Instructions

Ice cream containers, Bucket bottoms, Large catering margarine containers, Kitty Litter trays, Tinfoil Baking trays and Pie trays.

Begin by mixing up the premix quick set cement which can be found at your local hardware store.

Have the children or yourself standby ready with sleeves rolled up and the petroleum jelly on their hands for protection from the cement, this will just wash off afterwards.

Pour the cement into the molds and tap it until it settles nice and flat then have the children place their hand into the mold.

Alternatively the children can just decorate the stones with glass marbles or mosaic tiles rather then coming into contact with the cement.

Allow the stones to set before tapping them out of the molds. Wrap them up and attach one of these lovely poems.

Child’s Poem

When you step upon this stone

Just think about how much I’ve grown.

I made this in my own special way

To show you my love on mother’s day

Adult Poem

This is to remind you

When all the years go by

That I’ll always love you

When times are low and high.

This stepping stone will survive

Through heat and snow and rain

Just like the love between us

It will never strain.
