Step Into Fun with Made for Me Stepping Stones!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


We like these Made by Me kits because they allow us to get hands on with the kids in a crafty sort of way. Even better, we're making crafts they'll see and appreciate all of the time, like this Mix and Mold Stepping Stones Kit.




Here's my son holding it, so you can get an idea for how big the box is that contains the kit. This was pre-haircut. He was trying to grow his hair out this summer but it didn't grow as fast as he wanted. Unfortunately, school is about to start again, so he had to get his lovely locks shorn. ;)


The kit comes with 4 bags of mix, so you can make a whole set of stepping stones.


You can use the plastic 3D mold to make your stone, or you can design it however you see fit. If you look very carefully here, you can see the dragonfly and leaf on the included plastic mold.


The kit comes with directions, 4 bags of stepping stone mix, mixing stick, 3D plastic mold tray, paint, ceramic squares and gem circles, a paintbrush, gloves  and stickers.


The first stone my little niece made with the kit, is a conglomeration of colors. She used paint. I was surprised she didn't use the stickers for this one, because you know, 4-year-olds do love their stickers! Please note that this kit is recommended for ages 6 and up, so if you are working with children who are younger, be very mindful that they do not put any of these things in their mouth! We knew little one would not, but were vigilant anyway in keeping watch. Plus, part of the fun is that you are making this together. 

There's something magical about seeing a bag of mold turn into a solid stepping stone that you decorated, and now love. This particular stone has the word 'dad' on it. The next one will probably have her handprint embedded in it. Because it's a mold, so you can do that too. What a great keepsake to have in the yard, where you don't usually get to keep such things. It's a delightful way to decorate the grass or garden, don't you think? We love this one, and we can't wait to make the next one in the set.

  1. I remember my girls making these. It was always so much fun to see their projects out in the garden. Sadly, the harsh elements here caused them to break, but what good times they had creating stepping stones for me!

  2. It looks like fun. I've always wanted to make stepping stones to look like big pillows, or have a big leaf in printed in them.

  3. They do look like fun.
    Decades ago we used plaster of paris to make mould of our hands in the sand.

  7. These are a great indoor or outdoor activity for the kids. They could decorate a yard or garden or they could be painted in a way to memorialize a pet.

    My grandson is still too young to make one himself but I would still get a kit. We can make stepping stones together and I am sure he'd love it.
