It’s secret that I’m obsessed with doing crafts at home, and I love the idea of Color Me Mine… but its kind of far from my house and I have done a couple projects where I paint a ceramic piece and bake it in the oven and I don’t have to leave my house to do it!
So if your kids are misbehaving you didn’t expend energy getting out of the house to go to color me mine and come pick up your finished piece a couple days after you leave.
All you need is a ceramic piece, and enamel paint!
I found these ceramic pumpkins at Hobby Lobby when I was getting some fall decorations and HAD to buy them. I like doing crafts with the kids, as well as alone. This was perfect because I would display their work with my fall decor.
You take your paint and paint the piece,
and when you’re done just pop it in the oven on a cookie sheet.
When you finish let it sit inside while it preheats to 350.
Let it bake for 30 mins and take it out to cool.
If you have paint pens from another project have your kiddo sign the bottom or back and write the year its made before you put it in the oven to cure.
You can do this for so many holidays and occasions. Hopefully you do this and have some fun with your kids!
