Garden Mosaic Stepping Stone

What It Is: Garden Mosaic Stepping Stone

Paint Cut Paste 

Why We Love It: 
Can you say, 'darling keepsake'? This sweet stepping stone -- decorated with hand prints, glass beads in her favorite colors, and a meaninful word or phase -- is sure to become a beloved family heirloom. (Someday, she won't believe her hands were that small!) Make an extra one for a special someone (like Grandma) and watch another pair of eyes light up.  

What You'll Need:
A garden mosaic kit (these can be purchased at your local craft store), shells, marbles, beach glass, broken pieces of stained glass, plates or other pottery.

How to Do It:
Follow the directions in your mosaic kit, and while the cement is still wet, have your child make handprints. Then, decorate as desired. 

Great for Kids:
Toddlers and up
