The kids were admiring their pottery they painted at a "paint your own pottery" place we went to over the summer and asked if we could go back. At that moment I remembered something....At Michael's, they have little ceramic shapes you can paint and I grabbed some for $.50 a piece one time I was there. I ran to my craft stash and pulled out some acrylic paint and these little ceramic shapes and they got painting. It was a lot of fun, and they weren't the least bit impressed that I produced such an activity so quickly. :)
My son painted 2 cars, one of which he painted like the bat mobile and my daughter painted a lady bug and a butterfly.
