Plate Painting at Homer Laughlin China Co.

We were out the whole day yesterday.  We went to  Newell West Virginia to Homer Laughlin as they   sponsored the Fiesta Festival   plate painting for kids.  We  haven't done this despite   the invitation from the previous years as  it is a bit far from us but we decided to go this time since both of them are  big enough and  very interested in  doodling.  I was disappointed that my camera's battery was drained but glad that my camera  is a hero and was able to  snapped some photos.
They were given each of this receipt.  They need this  for claiming  their plate..  We need to go back there  in two weeks.
Here are some of the plate painted by kids from previous years.
They were given a paper plate first to practice their  sketches while waiting for their number to be called.
My son  got done with his plate right away while my daughter who is a bit perfectionist  keep changing her design.  I will show you their plates once we collected them already.

What a fun, unusual and entertaining way to spend an afternoon. I'm sure your children enjoyed it--and they will be ever so proud of their finished plates.

What a fun, unusual and entertaining way to spend an afternoon. Your kids looked like they enjoyed themselves immensely. They will be even prouder of the finished product once you are able to pick them up.

This looks like so much fun. I would love to paint my own whole set of dishes. That would be cool lol :)

That's so nice. I love that they have something to practice at first before painting the actual plate itself.

This is one of those mode of arts that I like. Aside from it is a good way to practice the artistic skills, it is affordable too.

Right now my daughter loves to color and I'm sure this kind of event would be nice to all our kids. I'm excited to see all their art works on your next post sis.
