Painted Stepping Stones

Another fun project that turned into finger / body painting in my house. I’m always checking the dollar section at Target in the front of the store. They always have the cutest things and kid crafts. I bought these stepping stones for each of the boys to paint for the garden. I was half tempted to paint a few myself (maybe next time).I already had paint and brushes so this was a fairly inexpensive project.

The kits came with small brushes and paint but I wanted them to be a bit more colorful so I  used some acrylic paint I already had. They started out so colorful but then they wanted to keep adding more and more paint so they ended up a little muddy. It’s a little hard to even tell whats on them but the boys had fun and that’s what matters.

When they were all dry I did clean up the edges a bit with some paint. I then used a gold paint pen I had left over from my C3PO Jewelry Tray to add accents here and there. Just enough so you could tell they were painted bugs. Afterwards, I sprayed them with a sealant so that the paint wouldn’t all wash off from the weather. Now I have cute little stepping stones to decorate my garden that were made by my little men.

That is Princes Leia, who just couldn’t stand to not be in every picture. She is probably searching for more weed block to dig. Oh and yes, I know I need to clean the leaves out of my rock garden and finish the edging up the steps (someday soon). There is just not enough time in the day.
