After making the concrete, pour into disposable aluminum pie tins and smooth with a putty knife, spatula or any flat object.  Let the concrete set up enough until it will hold an imprint.

Then decorate with handprint, footprint, marbles, stones, have the kids write their names with a craft stick; whatever your heart desires!
