Activities with Rocks and Stones

Step On It Rock Path

Put rocks to work for you in this rock and stone activity. With the Step on it Rock Path, you can make walkways for your garden or simply lay rocks out for decoration.

What You'll Need:

  • Large flat rocks

How to Make Step On It Rock Path:

Step 1: Use the larger stones you discover on your geologic journeys to make stepping stones for your gardens, yard or flowerbeds -- especially to help you make a safe path to where you keep the garden hose.

Step 2: Take your flat, heavy stones and put them about six inches apart on a trail, either between rows in your garden or in flowerbeds near the spigot for the hose.

If a path isn't enough, find out how to create a whole rock garden on the next page.
