Father's Day was fast approaching, and buying for my husband is a difficult job. I wanted to get him something that was cute and personal and that the kids could have a 'hand' in making. I brought this dilemma to Clay Escape in Fort Mill, SC and their answer of a hand painted mug with both kids hand prints on it fit the bill. Bonus - it was fun for the kids to create.
We picked a coffee cup to paint. S who is 4 painted it like a pro and E who is 1 watched on until it was time for both of them to get some paint on their hands and make it super special for their dada/jaddy. The cost was about $20 all told after taxes, but they offer a large range of items and prices from tiny trinkets up to large platters. All fully customizable one of a kind fun for the family, and a great gift for Dads, Moms, Grandmas and Grandpas.
Once the painting is finished the project will have a dull, grainy, chalky feel to it. It takes Clay Escape about a week to put it in the kiln and have it ready for pick up. At pick up the colors are vibrant and it is covered with a lustrous finish perfect for every day use. Dress the kids in painting clothes and grab a brush to make a special project and fun memories. Clay Escape also hosts birthday parties, ladies nights out and corporate functions. a Rafflecopter giveaway
