I think they will be tons of fun. I think it is better to use a mold that has some give to it so that it is easier to pop the stone out

I know for a buck or so you can buy plastic plant saucer you know the thing that catches the water, ( dang I am drawing a blank on what they are called) they come in many sizes and would work great as long as you dont need to move the stone until it is dry.

Dawn I don't remember where I read it but you can also use aluminum cake pans for molds as well.
True Dor and plastic wash basins (like from the hospital) If you don't mind some imperfections you can make a sand mold.
I use to have many of th emolds before we moved back to Oregon...really were easy to make...not much cost either...I was going to get more molds...then meet a guy last week that makes and sells them ...for $7 each...so will be getting many from him...
