Mosaic Stepping Stones, Part I

Finally, we are beginning our mosaic stepping stone project for the front yard.  It is my plan that every family make their own personal stepping stone, but we shall see.  Our first step is making the tiles.  We bought cheap solid colored plates from Walmart and wrapped them individually in an old towel.  Then everyone took turns smashing each plate with Dad`s hammer.
Picking out the medium pieces



Careful.  Those pieces are sharp.
Before
During
After
Even Sophia gave it a try.
The End.  
We do need to get a red plate; Walmart was out at the time we purchased the others.
The next stage will be setting out our designs as we planned before we cement.  
To be continued...
