Animal Mug Mugs Program for Teens

Thanks to Samantha at LEPMPL for this guest post!

I did a teen program called Animal Mug Mugs a couple weeks ago. It was the first time in the two years I have worked at LEPMPL that my registration for a teen craft was full, and it was a lot of fun! I bought 12 white ceramic mugs and a box of Uni oil paint markers and had the kids draw animal noses on the bottom of their mugs so that when they drink from them . . . well, just take a look at the cute pictures! 

I put examples of animal noses on the table and sent them home with curing instructions—the mugs need to be baked to set the paint. Because the markers/colors needed to be shared, kids had to talk to each other, and we had some fun conversation and a good time getting to know new people. Several of the teens—and parents who picked them up—said they thought the mugs would make nice Christmas gifts. I agree!
