Stepping Out with MindWare Toys


I have some very creative grand children. Several of the girls are really into arts and crafts.  I was delighted to have the opportunity to work with MindWare, for this posting, since they have such an awesome collection of projects for young crafters.With so much to choose from, it was very had to decide where to start.  Ultimately, I decided on several Paint Your Own Stepping Stones craft kits.  They each contain everything needed for girls and boys to make bright and colorful stepping stones that they will treasure for years to come. One can opt for a:

  • Butterfly
  • Turtle
  • Flower
  • Snail
  • Bunny
  • Bee
  • Set of 3

“These all-weather stepping stones are 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. This set includes one each of Mosaic, Turtle and Butterfly stepping stones. Age Recommendation: Ages 6 and up”

Just set up a place for the kids to work, cover the table with old newspaper or scrap paper and let them have at it.  Before long they will have something that was fun to “make” and that they can use.  My granddaughter, I’m sure, will put her finished stepping stones down as a pathway, from the patio out to the lake behind their home.
