Krafting with Kids

After breakfast and lunch, naps, a few meltdowns, and a little clean up; it was craft time. I pulled out an old sheet and had the girls make their own coasters. This is such a clever idea for kids to give parents for Christmas or Birthday.

Ceramic Tiles
Mod Podge
Foam Brush
Cardstock; Stencils; Rub-ons, etc
Glaze Gloss
Felt Pads; Rubber Pads

Each had 2 (4x4) pieces of cardstock to draw their own picture. This is what we came up with.

Use a (4) 4" ceramic tile from Menards of any color (white is the best ) and paint with Mod Podge ( using a foam brush ), allow to dry, use rub-on stencils, decorative cardstock, plain cardstock with crayon drawing, monogram letters or even holiday themed. Once finished coat three time with Mod Podge again. After that you will use a spray glaze gloss to seal it all in. The last step is to apply felt pads to the bottom so the coaster will not scratch the table.

Here are my creations...
