Paint a Mug

My friend Janeen recently came to visit us and she brought the girls these paint your own mug kits.

Each kit came with two mugs, one brush, and ceramic paint. The box label said Ages 8+, but I knew the girls would be fine. I knew their mugs would be more abstract then the examples given on the box. 

This kit is different than many that I have seen in the past because there is no baking involved. All you do is paint; let it dry; and they can be used. The paint will not come off in the dishwasher. And it is food safe. We have put ours in the dishwasher, but the girls opted to give the mugs to their dad for a pen holder. Anna and Addie loved this project and painted for about forty five minutes.

We were able to paint four mugs with only one tray of paint. I plan to use the leftover paint to put the kids' hand prints and names onto plates for a Father's Day gift.
