Mosaic stepping stones for the garden

I am making some stepping stones for the garden with a group of school children with special needs and
wanted to share. Just to throw it out there… think of cake molds that would be great for this project.
i used a turtle mold that was once a cake mold. Be sure to grease up the mold before placing the wet cement
into the mold. Thin layer of Armorall is recommended to repel the mold from sticking to the cement.
Allow 24hrs for cement to dry in mold

Materials Needed

  • Empty container to mix cement
  • measuring cup
  • 1 3/4 cups of water
  • 8lbs cement
  • mosaic glass pieces
  • plastic gloves
  • mixing paddle
  • re-useable plastic molds
