Tile + Markers = Coaster
Activity DesignerMelissa Allen
When we came across some tiles that were at a local home warehouse recycling center, I grabbed a handful with absolutely no idea what to do. When my daughter and I started experimenting by decorating the tiles with permanent markers, we were amazed at how beautiful they came out. These coasters are a simple (and gorgeous!) gift!
How We Did It
I really imagined that decorating a tile would be a lot more complicated than this. But it turned out that permanent markers (used with adult supervision, of course!) was all that was needed!
Even my two-year-old got into it. These tiles with pictures drawn by my children will be so special to grandma, teachers, and friends.
We learned that drawing a black outline first really made the colors pop. Experimenting together and getting excited about a new project is such a great chance to bond. Even if it is just a craft, I love that we are talking, sharing opinions, and trusting each other. Crafting honestly brings us closer together...
