Fancy Frugal Life: $1 Store Mugs & Sharpies (I'm thankful for...) Mugs

$1 Store Mugs & Sharpies (I'm thankful for...) Mugs

I'm helping plan my son's 1st grade party next week and came up with a few craft ideas for all the kids to participate in.
I think this one is a winner! 
These mugs are from the Dollar Tree.
I wrote "I am thankful for...." along the top of the mug and let my kids tell me what to write. My son actually wrote his.

We made turkeys by coloring the tips of our fingers and then "stamping" them on the cup.

We also doodled pumpkins and pilgrim hats.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 min to set it. HANDWASH ONLY
And actually maybe we should think of it as a fun thoughtful pen holder or napkin holder/name tag at the turkey day table that you can reuse next year as well...
And those are our "I'm thankful for..." mugs....
I can't wait to help my son's class make these at our Bountiful bash next week!
Should I be upset my daughter said the ipad as #1? lol

I will send you a picture of our completed project. Out the door to the dollar tree. thank yoiu again. Mrs. Valerie of Happy Days Preschool

I've actually tried this idea and it's okay with holding up while handwashing, but I notice that the colours don't stay too well. I actually could scrub off the colour if I tried hard enough.

What I recommend is using Sharpie Paint pens. They're a bit more expensive but they stay on much longer. I also left the cups in for an hour instead of half.

Did you use the sharpie on their fingers to make the turkeys?
