Take your kids to the china shop!

No, really, it's a neat activity, very rewarding, not overly expensive ... we went to Robert Gordon (they've just set up a new shop quite close to us) and painted stuff!

The boys did Ducks:

Catriona did a pig :

And I did a side plate (with yummy cupcakes!)

In ten days or so I go back to collect them - they will look all shiny and pretty after firing!

Did you know, you can use rubber stamps on plates? They had a few stamps and some fired samples - they looked good. For reference, the only stamp pad they had on hand was a black Colorbox pad (which was dried out by the time I came to it). So I didn't use any stamps, but wow, I think I will next time.
