Magic Marker Monday: Stepping Stones


My parents started the tradition of the Halloween Witch when I was a child. The Witch brought art supplies on the day of Halloween, usually hidden somewhere in my room. As soon as our children were old enough, we started the same tradition.

This year, Ben received supplies to make stepping stones. Since this was the prized gift, he shared with his brothers. Ben did not mind because he didn't love having his foot dipped in cement, which I thought was the perfect way to decorate the stones.

Instead of body parts, we added marbles, buttons and glitter. Easy and inexpensive to do - fun way to spend the afternoon.

Check out other works of art.

  1. What a fun tradition! I love how your stones turned out too, I should try this again with just letting the kids decorate them how they like. (We made a batch of hand print ones for Christmas gifts a couple of years ago and sticking a hand in the stone mix was NOT a well received idea with my youngest). Love the idea!
