A Christmas plate

While Taneesha was decorating her plates on Sunday, Jacinta asked if there were any spares she would like to decorate one for her partner Josh.  It took her no time at all to finish this cute plate.  This is such a fun thing to do,  all you need are some cheap plain white plates, we were lucky that Kmart has a pack of ten boxed for $10, and  Sharpie pens of your chosen colour.  Draw your design on to the plate, and if you make a mistake just wipe it off with a baby wipe and start again.  When you are happy with the design, place the plates in a cold oven and heat to 180 degrees for 30 mins. let them sit in the oven with the door ajar until they cool.  The design is now permanent and washable, this would be a great idea for kids to do over the summer holidays, they would be so proud that they have made their own plate. I know that Jacinta is proud of her plate and she is no longer a kid.
