Mug painting fun!
Buy a set of white mugs and decorate the bottom with pig snouts or moustaches. If your husband is not a morning person… paint a smile under his mug! For Halloween fun decorate with Dracula teeth or monster mouths. This could also make a fun gift 🙂
There are a few products on the market that you can use for this boredom busting activity.
Pebeo brand glass markers is one product. Draw your design, put the mug in the oven according to the directions and the paint is set. Your local art supply store can assist you on finding the right product to create your mug set.
Do NOT paint inside the mug with any product.
Today I will be focusing on hand print ideas. The kids are sure to enjoy these activities! Because of the personal nature of a hand print or tracing, this type of art also makes FANTASTIC gifts!

For more ideas feel free to look at my “activities for kids” board on Pinterest. Thanks to all the Pinterest users for sharing these great ideas!
Every Thursday (yes I picked a random day of the week) I will post interesting ideas that I find on Pinterest. Specifically ACTIVITIES FOR KIDS.
We all need some fresh ideas every now and again. Spending creative time with your kids can be very rewarding, so let’s get those creative juices flowing!
Paint sealed inside a Ziploc bag and then taped to a glass door or window: mess free painting anytime.
Drop small blobs of liquid paint onto your paper, then blow with straws. After the paint has dried, add silly faces!
