Make mom’s morning cup of coffee a personalized affair, by decorating a new mug that’s be sure to become a fast favorite.
Materials:
Plain-colored coffee mug
Glossy enamel paints
Paintbrush
Glaze (alternative: clear nail polish)

Instructions:
To spruce up an ordinary looking coffee cup, kids can use a paintbrush and paints to design mom a great new mug for her mornings. Whether it’s a #1 Mom or just a colorful design, it can be a great homemade gift.
Laying down some newspaper is a good idea, and then the artist can get to work. Once finished, the paint can take a while to dry thoroughly, so you might want to bake in the oven to speed the process up and make it more resistant to chipping. Then a coat of glaze or clear nail polish can help seal the paint and further protect it.
