Mommy's Lil Helper: Painting Pottery For Presents

What lil rascal likes retail therapy? As holidays near and the gift list lengthens, take a kid-friendly approach to shopping. Forgo the long lines and crowded malls for a place that will unleash your child's creativity. Check out your local pottery painting studio and have your kids make presents — tea pots, coffee mugs, ornaments, and much more — for their friends and family.

If you're looking for an ideal keepsake for grandparents, take your children's hands, dip them into paint, and press them on a salad bowl or platter. The piece can be used for display or dining. Most studios charge a fee for the items as well as one for painting, glazing, and firing the finished goods. Errands get run and your youngsters have fun!
