When I saw this project, I just knew we had to make it for my parents. 1) It was cute…2) They would love it…3) Drew and Carter love coloring (and so I naturally assumed they would also love to paint. :-)).
I found two plain cream colored mugs at Goodwill and the paint and brushes at JoAnn’s. This paint is not easy to find!! Apparently most craft projects don’t have to be dishwasher safe… 🙂
The boys weren’t quite sure what we were about to do. 🙂
Once we gave them their paintbrushes, some paint and a mug they quickly figured out what to do and had so much fun! 🙂
Unfortunately we weren’t able to get many pictures, because our hands were busy helping and trying to keep the paint where it was supposed to be. 🙂 (Thankfully, we did this craft project on a day when Melinda was out visiting…so she helped Drew and I helped Carter.)
Once we were all done, we had two beautifully hand painted mugs to give to my Dad and Mom for their birthdays. 🙂
