I received a gift certificate last year to PottsnPaints and decided to share it with my kids. This was the first time I had ever painted anything and of course it was a first for my kids too.
We looked at all the shelves to decide which item(s) we were going to paint!
We looked in the clearance section.
They of course have a big holiday assortment. Halloween, Christmas etc.
How about some dishes?
Everyone choose their items.
Then we were introduced to the color options.
It was so neat to see all the colors. My kids couldn't wait to select their colors. They had such an organized system. Everything was numbered and easy to locate.
Our colors were chosen and it was ready to get busy!
My daughter selected an owl to paint.
My son selected a spider web to paint.
After we were done I tried to explain the process to them after wards.
We left them to be glazed and returned a few weeks later to pick them up.
My kids were so happy first off to see their pieces but they really loved them when they saw how shiny the pieces were.
My son made sure to make his as colorful as he could!
My daughter worked very hard on her details!
I think we had a great day together and we have physical pieces to go with the mementos this time around!
I hope we do this activity again sometime. We could make gifts for others, ornaments for the tree or anything.
Find time for your family this weekend and do something special!
