Spring is that wonderful time of year when the snow and ice have melted away, new blooms are sprouting and my garden is getting its annual, seasonal makeover. For a fresh, new looking, we are combining our love of art with our love of the outdoors with these “Paint Your Own” Stepping Stones from Mindware.

More about these Stepping Stone:

These all-weather stepping stone is ready to paint right out of the box, letting you skip messy cement-mixing and get right to the fun part: decorating and personalizing! A dozen vibrant paints allow for endless creativity—mix, blend and add custom color accents. Once painted, bake the stone in your oven for a long-lasting, weather-resistant finish. Display one stepping stone or make a whole pathway to transform your garden, backyard or patio! Each kit includes a 10″ x 9″ cement stepping stone, 12 paints, a paint brush and instructions including a color planning template. Set of 6 includes: Bee, Flower, Mosaic Circle, Butterfly, Snail and Turtle.

Creating is the real joy in these stones. Simply open up the kit, lay down some protective paper to assure you don’t get a mess on your table or counter surface and let the colorful fun begin. We started with the flower because that is the perfect way to start the Spring season off.You can use the template pattern of colors that come with the stone or let your creative juices flow and paint what your desired color scheme is. We did stick to the pattern a bit, and used the smaller features in the center and surrounding the petals to give a different look.Once the piece is completed, bake it in the oven to keep the colors bright and relevant and withstand the weather. I love the stepping stones collection as they are really heavy, durable and a craft project that kids and parents can enjoy together.  We have had such a fun and amazing time creating and painting our stones for our front flower garden. The colors truly are vibrant, bright and make a wonderful, eye-appealing draw to anyone that admires the garden.

Looking to get dad involved this Father’s Day? Pick up the 6-piece stepping stones set that has shapes for every member of the family.

  1. Susan Cherry says

    My granddaughters LOVED painting these yesterday. How long and at what temperature do I need to bake them – I have 4. Assume I also need to bake 1 at the time but would like to know how long and the oven temperature.

  2. Ashley Chassereau Parks says

    This turned out so pretty! I love the sparkly look it has… I’ll bet that shine in the sunlight! I know my girls would love to make something like this and I think it would look so cute in our garden!

  3. I love these! They look so easy and fun. I’m going to try these for sure.

  4. Such a fun craft for all ages! Why I like it so much, my kids and I can all get into this.

  5. Virginia H says

    This would be a fun project for my twin girls and their dad. Thanks for the idea. I love the pictures of the ones completed. Beautiful stepping stones.

  6. Mia Rose says

    It would be very neat to have one of each of these kits. They are all so neat it is hard to decide which would be the most fun.

  7. Dana Rodriguez says

    Fun craft to add some bright color to your yard. Nice review. Looks like you all had fun!

  8. Irene Menge says

    It would be fun if they made things like small garden ornaments to paint, too. Like frogs, gnomes, dinosaurs, etc.

  9. Maryann D. says

    This would be a fun and creative project to do with my daughter. We would enjoy it.

    These look so durable that I could keep them in my yard for many years and enjoy the memory of making them.

  14. Michelle Bartley says

    My Granddaughter could put them in her garden!

  15. Irene Menge says

    The trick would be to find enough newspapers to cover the table top. My grandchildren are not the neatest kids in the world and I wouldn’t want to nag them about not making a mess when the project is about having fun.

  16. Dana Rodriguez says

    I think these would be pretty around our flower bed!

  17. Maryann D. says

    These Stepping Stone would make a lovely gift for anyone’s garden. They are so pretty.

  18. Dana Rodriguez says

    It is so rainy and dreary here today. This would be perfect to work on!

  19. Irene Menge says

    I do hope the paint is durable. My grandchildren would be very disappointed if it wore off too quickly.

  31. Irene Menge says

    If my grandchildren and I were in the middle of this project, had finished painting and were baking the stones, it would be incredibly amusing if my son came home from work early. The first place he goes is the kitchen and, if he saw that the oven was on, he’d definitely check to see what was cooking. he’d be stupefied to see concrete baking.

  32. Linda Manns Linneman says

    These are so pretty. They sound like so much fun to get creative with. My grandchildren will love doing this with me

    My grandkids would love to paint these and give them to their Dad (my son) for Father’s Day. A nice embellishment for his garden.

  52. These are nice. Already made up, so you only need to paint. Mixing the cement, smoothing it, and getting it laid right is the hard part of stepping stones. Painting is the fun part. They are relaxing and exhilarating to work on.

  53. Vickie Kulp says

    This is a great craft for young children or adults!
