Since the stone takes up to 24 hours to set, we worked on that first. Nathan was disappointed that he couldn't decorate it just yet. Which is why I did a second project as well, to sort of tie him over until he can paint on the stone. He LOVES painting projects.
The create a garden stone project was somewhat messy, I would recommend laying newspaper on the table (I didn't - and had a HUGE mess to clean up). Adult help is a must. Not only is it messy, but it dries very quickly.
The second project we did was planting some flower seeds in these cute little tin, kid sized buckets. I filled them with potting soil and then let Nathan add the seeds. He went a teensy bit overboard........
I think he was disappointed that they didn't magically grow the instant he poured the water on top.
Patience, my son.....Patience!
Good things come to those who wait!
