Weekend Project #2 - Hopscotch



Hopscotch Stones
The steps leading to our patio

Did you love Hopscotch at a little kid? I know I did. I used to jump around all the time, from brick to brick and number to number.

Again, searching through Pinterest, I saw this great idea...how about making concrete squares into Hopscotch stepping stones.

We have a small area next to our patio that we walk through the dirt all the time. Stepping stones are the perfect solution there. And this was a cheap and creative way to make colorful, fun stepping stones.

The trickiest part of this project is the numbers. You can either paint the stones first in a solid color, then once dry you can paint the numbers on with white paint. I decided to go a different route. I purchased sticker paper at my local office supply store. I drew my numbers and cut them out.

The first thing I did was paint the top of the stones in white. I then peeled off the back of my sticker paper and put the numbers down on the stones. I then went hog wild spraying the stones in bight primary colors. Once the color was one I peeled up the numbers to find my perfect painted white numbers.

Supplies:
Concrete Pavers (however many numbers you want)
White Spray Paint for the base (the color of the numbers)
Spray Paint for the colors of the stones you want
Sticker Paper (8.5 x 11 - create your own labels: found at Staples)

Steps:

1. Spray the tops of each steps in white
2. Draw and cut out your numbers on the sticker paper
3. Peel and stick the numbers onto the stones
4. Paint the tops and sides of each stone in the colors you want
5. Peel the stickers off and let dry

So fun and cute.

Enjoy!
