A fun family activity

July 19, 2011

Recently, we had a mini family reunion, and as one of our activities, went to a local pottery painting place with the kids.  They (actually all of us) had SO much fun!  It was a great chance for everyone to be creative, and have fun at the same time.  The kids really got into the painting!  I don’t yet have pictures of the finished products (I haven’t seen the yet either!) but thought I’d share the idea as a fum summer activity.

Here are some of the things we came up with it!

The above is my mug.  I tend to get overwhelmed by having many choices, and therefore had originally decided to just paint rainbows on the cup knowing that R would like that.  But then L had the idea of painting flowers – he reminded me of how much I (we) loved the red poppies all over Italy (you can see the dress this inspired here) so I decided to make a mug inspired by those images!

And some of the other beauties as well!

So find your nearest pottery painting place, grab a friend/family member, and have fun!!

    This is a GREAT activity! I recently painted a light switch plate for my boys’ room (with their names and a heart), and I had a lot of fun. This makes me want to go back and do something else! 🙂
