Make A Plate

As a kid, I made my own personalized designed plates. I have such fond memories of drawing them with my brother and our friends. Even now during the summers, my parents pull out those same plates so our kids can use them.

My artistic skills are still at this level.

My artistic skills haven’t improved since.

Another one made when I was 7 years old.

For whatever reason, I also drew these plates when I was 17 years old (for whatever reason, I don't recall doing them).

For whatever reason, I also ,ade these plates when I was 17.  #QueenNerd.

 

This past summer, I decided to have the kids make their own plates just like I did when I was young. Lo and behold, it was the SAME company. You order the kit on amazon, then you draw with washable markers on the paper provided.  Then you mail everything to the company and wait 4-6 weeks.  We now eat on them every night and couldn’t be happier.

Tusia is extremely artistic and loves drawing flowers and rainbows. Maybe these plates will help her get into NYC kindergarten? (#NotJoking)

I am excited to have these plates for their lifetime (just like my parents have had mine for my lifetime — thank you). The plates also make great personalized presents to grandparents or cousins or friends! It is also a great art project for the kids.
