When I visit my sister’s family, I always like to give my three nieces the gift of a new experience.
Now that my oldest niece is 16 and I have a four-year old son, I needed to come up with an experience that teenagers AND young children would enjoy. That’s a little tough, but I came up with the perfect idea! Adults will enjoy it too!
I took everyone to a paint your own pottery studio where each of us picked out an unfinished ceramic pottery to paint.
The studio had a TON of choices and to inspire customers it displayed examples of what the final painted products could look like.
I picked out a Christmas sweater platter, and my son picked out a dinosaur. My sister picked out a Christmas mug, while her 16-year old niece picked out a jar. My 13-year old niece picked out a turtle shaped container, and my nine-year old niece picked out a Hello Kitty figurine. See! Something for everyone!
The pottery studio provided all of the painting supplies, glazing and firing. All we needed to do was unleash our creativity!
