I, like you perhaps, spend way too much time on Pinterest. I’m forever pinning cute activities for the kids to do. The problem? Most of the time, the activities are huge Pinterest fails.
But, recently I found a pin for a Father’s Day Scribble Mug Kids’ Craft, and I knew I’d have to have the kids try it for my husband this Father’s Day. Luckily, the craft was a success!
- One ceramic mug (we got ours for $1.99 at Michael’s)
- several painter’s pens (we bought these at Michael’s for approximately $2.99 each. We bought 4 colors–gold, blue, red, and green.)
- letter stickers
*Wash the mugs thoroughly and dry.
*Spread newspapers out on the table to protect the table while painting.
*Have the kids put on the stickers. They should spell out “dad” and added any other decorative stickers they would like. A few things to remember about the stickers. For the letters, make sure that the children will be able to color in the inner circle of the “D” for dad. Some stickers have a plastic backing over the opening of the letters, so kids can’t color the middle of the letters, which makes “dad” difficult to read when the stickers are removed. Also, choose stickers with recognizable outline shapes like stars, hearts, etc. When the stickers are removed, you should be able to tell what the shape is.
*Use the pens to color the mugs. Make sure to open several windows because the smell can be strong.
*Let the mugs dry for a few minutes and then remove all of the stickers.
*Put the mugs on a baking sheet and place in the oven BEFORE preheating.
*Set the oven temperature for 360 degrees, and the timer for 30 minutes.
*Turn off the oven when the timer goes off, and keep the mugs in the oven until they are completely cooled.
