Ceramic Plate Craft

Mother's Day craft activity

Kids can decorate this plate for Mom with acrylic paint. Our Color-Me Bisque Plates are easy to paint and come with an easel so Mom can display it for everyone to see! TIP: To make easy flowers, dip the end of the paintbrush into a small amount of paint to make the flower center (use the same method to make polka dots). For the petals, use the tip of your finger. This makes it easier for kids instead of drawing the flowers. Have them get creative with their design!

Pom Pom Chicks

Easter Crafting

These adorable little chicks are so fun and easy to make. You just need some pom poms, wiggly eyes, felt, and pipe cleaners. For the larger chick, we used pipe cleaners for her feet.
