garden tiles

One of my parents works at a children's home. They want the children to
make garden tiles/cement paver type things. Has anyone done this? I know
there are kits, but that is cost prohibitive.
I told here I thought they could use pizza boxes for molds (plastic lined?)
and regular cement.
Are items (shells, marbles, pottery shards) added when it starts to set?
Can they press their hands in it? Write in it (that's a stupid question -
isn't that what everyone sees in sidewalks etc?... - when do they write in
it?) Is there a curing period? Should they add a chicken wire
reinforcement in the middle of the tile? I've made cement bird baths with
kids - I didn't know if it was the same.
Any thoughts?
Thanks,
Ellen
