Kids love crafts. At least mine do :-) Making Sharpie Coffee Cups is very easy for kids and it doesn’t require a lot from parents ;-) Hahaha! I don’t know about you but I have a hard time fitting arts and crafts into homeschooling so when I find something easy, creative, and fun, it’s a big win!
Here are a few simple tips for Sharpie Coffee Cups with Kids:
- DON’T BUY CLEAR GLASS CUPS. They don’t absorb the ink and when you wash them your kid’s design comes right off :-( I want to try this again and USE CERAMIC CUPS. You can read this post on 21 Tips for DIY Sharpie Marker Mugs and find details on making this project work for you.
- If you have a two-year-old he or she will probably use their body as a canvas with these permanent markers… just warning you ;-)
- I bought our pack of Sharpies at Office Depot here in Mexico. They are a little harder to find here and just as expensive as the US.
- Don’t expect a super cute group photo of all four children with their cups. One may hide behind the cup and another may look like they are about to cry.
- Be careful getting them out of the oven! When they hit ceramic tile they tend to explode. One of the kids lost their cup immediately :-(
Here is our little adventure with Sharpie Coffee Cups in photos. Signing off, Tina
