The only thing I love more than my morning coffee is the kid art mug I pour it in. This adorable DIY gift was made for me by my son and it is such a sweet reminder of why I am up so darn early. Having little kids adds so many wonderful things to your life, but sleep isn’t one of them. I’m not sure how I would survive without that morning cup of joe, but I do know that all those sleepless nights and early mornings are worth it. And pulling this special mug down from the cupboard each morning makes me smile. I’ve traded rest for something more fulfilling: motherhood. I get to spend my day with the creative kiddo that made this beautiful mug and that is priceless. Want your own kid made mug? How about free coffee to put in it? Read on for the DIY details and instructions for entering to win a years supply of McCafe from Albertsons.
This kid made mug was inspired by this beautiful Scribble Art Dishware, be sure to check out the post for extra tips, especially if you are doing this project with a toddler.
To Make A Kid Art Mug You’ll Need
- A white mug
- A ceramic/porcelain pen or Sharpie (note: the specialty pens work best but Sharpie will do in a pinch)
- Painters tape (optional)
How to Make a Kid Art Mug
- Wash and dry your mug. If using Sharpie: tape off the top so that they can’t mark inside or where your lips touch.
- Have your child scribble, doodle, draw, or write all over the outside of the mug.
- Allow to dry 24 hours and them bake the mug at 300 degrees F for 35 minutes.
