MakIt is a company that has been around for over 40 years. When Makit reached out for a collaboration, it was a blast from my past! I had made a Make A Plate Kit as a child, and to this day my mother displays it proudly in her china cabinet. So I was more than happy to let the tradition carry on and have my boys create a piece of art for my china cabinet. 🙂
More about MakIt: Kids and adults alike love Make A Plate for the time spent together drawing unique designs, and the prized plates that serves as tangible, beloved memories for years. That creative, do-it-yourself component makes our craft projects a favorite of groups and classrooms (organizations can even earn revenue through our fundraising program). Kids experience joy when they receive their personalized plate, and they use it for months on end. The care and customization that go into each handmade design also make our handmade crafts the perfect gift for loved ones. Whether it’s precious artwork hand-drawn by a child or a cherished photo from a special family outing, your results are always memorable!
The Make A Plate Kit process was pretty simple, the kids draw on the special paper with washable markers, mail in their drawings, and receive their unique designs back on a plate in just 2 short weeks!
The Make A Plate Kit includes:
- 8 washable markers
- 6 coloring templates
- easy to follow instructions
- order form
- pre-addressed return envelope
- rush label (optional)
The boys had so much fun creating their masterpieces! My lil guy is infatuated with having his hands traced, so Daddy helped out a bit. 🙂
Within 2 weeks we received my lil Picasso’s artwork on their plates. They were SO excited to see them! I was too. 🙂
The plates are made with durable melamine, and are break-resistant. They are also BPA free, and dishwasher safe.
