Hand painting plain glass or ceramic dishes is a great way to make an inexpensive holiday gift! It’s not difficult to find a glass or ceramic item that you can add your own special touch to. This season, the dollar section at Target has been stocked with stemless wine glasses and drinking glasses for just $1 each. Try Walmart or your “dollar store” for other options like mugs, bowls, or plates.

Play silks are a great open-ended toy for kids. They can become a fort, a baby blanket, a scarf or a sari.
I’ve been wanting to dye play silks for the girls for a long time now — and I’ve even had the silk and Kool-Aid just waiting to be used — but for some reason I kept putting it off.
Thanks in part to this series, I finally pulled them out yesterday to try it, and truly, it was so simple and easy that I feel a little silly for waiting so long!
We dyed the silks yesterday, let them dry overnight, and then today two of my little models helped me get a picture of them, asking the whole time, “Can we play with them now? Are we done? Can we play with them?!”
