Kid-Made Mother's Day Gift

This morning the neighbor kids and Soren got together to make some painted glass coffee mugs for moms and grandmoms.
I used my trusty glass paints again (you can get them at craft stores too) and let the kids be creative with their designs on some Irish Coffee mugs I picked up at the dollar store.
It was cute hearing the siblings "argue" over their mommy's favorite color and what kind of hot beverages she likes best.
We also had painted some baby food jars to use as vases or containers for little trinkets.  When the painting was done, I baked the glasses in the oven for a half an hour.
Oh, that loooooong half hour wait!  Finally, the hot-to-the-touch results.  Here's Soren's cup and vase below.
I think we mamas will treasure these personalized gifts for years to come, and for me, I'll treasure the memory of watching my son make it.
