Sharpies on PlatesPosted: October 30, 2012 | Author: Jena | Filed under: after school cool down, Artsy Fartsy, Drawing, playing with our food, Recycling | 4 Comments »
We’ve drawn on plates before. I bought a special porcelain pen for the occasion. Later, I learn about Sharpies on plates, works just as well as the porcelain pen and we have more colors at our disposal with Sharpies.
After drawing, bake plate at 350 for about 30 minutes.
I have 3 small, plain, white plates I find at the “treasure house.” The treasure house is a shed at our recycle center, where people can drop off various stuffs that they aren’t using anymore, like outgrown toys, kitchen gadgets, books, etc.
The boys find the plates set up on their little kitchen table, next to a full box of Sharpies.
Little J draws a portrait of his mama, me, and Kiki draws a self portrait. Little K is just starting to show some interest in representational drawing, especially if he can use his favorite color, red. On the 3rd plate, Little J draws a rainbow. I love it when boys draw rainbows. He also loves drawing pictures of skateboarders, pools, mountains, giant mud puddles…he’s a well rounded boy.
