Stepping Stones

This is a fun craft that anyone can do.

What you need.
Round or square aluminum pans ( I used the throw away ones)
1 bag of cement (quick drying)
Glass beads
Old dishes

Carefully break the dishes into pieces. I used a hammer,wrapped the dish in a towell and using the hammer carefully broke it into different size pieces.
P,ace the broken pieces in the pan add some beads.
Mix the cement and pour it into the pan filling it within 1/4 inch of the top set it aside and let it dry.
Once dry remove the pan and you have a very cute stepping stone.
Make several and use them in your yard or garden.
It's a fun project to do with kids.
