Last year for Mother’s Day, Big Brother (age 2 at the time) made personalized pot holders for both grandmothers (and I kept one for myself too). He was still in the “scribbling” stage, but I think even the scribbles are precious! I would love to do one every few years to keep and compare (since I am always needing pot holders anyway).
All you need to create a personalized pot holder is a plain-colored pot holder and fabric markers. I really wanted to use white pot holders, but couldn’t find any. I finally found the pot holder shown above at Target. It has a sylicone back and it isn’t quilted. I found the fabric markers at Michael’s.
Once you have the supplies, let your child go to town drawing whatever his/her heart desires!
