Simple Kids Can Make Gifts For Mothers Day

Iron-On Bags with Kids' Drawings

From: Martha Stewart

Decorate canvas bags or eyeglass cases for Mom with your child's hand-drawn masterpieces.
It's quick and simple to do with iron-on transfer paper (available at crafts stores) that fits through any ink-jet printer. Print a drawing onto the paper, trim out the design, and then use a dry iron to transfer the image to clean canvas according to the instructions on the package.

Hand-Warming Mug

From : Better Homes and Gardens Web Site.

What You Need:
  • Ceramic mug
  • Delta Air-Dry PermEnamel Surface Conditioner
  • Delta Air-Dry PermEnamel Paint in colors you like
  • Delta Air-Dry PermEnamel Clear Gloss Glaze
  • Paintbrushes, including a medium flat and liner

1. Wash the mug with soap and water. Rinse the mug well and let dry.
2. Use the flat brush to apply a coat of conditioner to the outside of the mug. Let the conditioner dry. Do not touch the cleaned and prepared surface.
3. Shake the paint bottle well and squeeze a dime-size dot of paint into the clean palm of your hand. (Ask a grown-up for a helping hand with this.) Use the flat brush to spread the paint, completely covering the entire palm side of your hand. To make a good hand print, the paint should be shiny and thick.
4. Place your paint-covered hand on the mug. To avoid smears, try not to move your fingers. Lift your hand straight up from the mug. Immediately wash your hand.
5. Dip the liner brush in paint and write your name beside the hand print. Let the paint dry completely.
6. When the paint is dry, use the flat brush to apply a coat of clear gloss glaze over the painted surface. Let the glaze dry for one hour and apply a second coat.
7. Be sure to wait 10 days before using and washing the mug, or the paint may come off.
