Painted Tile

Odds and ends of plain ceramic tile are great fun to paint. You can hang painted tiles on a wall or use them for coasters or trivets.

Materials

  • Acrylic paints
  • Paintbrushes, sponges, and/or small stickers
  • Plain ceramic tile
  • Clear acrylic spray
  • Glue gun (optional)
  • Marbles or wooden beads (optional)

Directions

  1. Let your child paint on a plain piece of tile.
  2. He can paint a design, scene, or message; use sponges to make a colorful design; or stick stickers on the tile, paint over them, and remove the stickers when the paint is dry.
  3. When your child's masterpiece is finished, spray the tile with clear acrylic spray.
  4. If your child has made a trivet, you might also use a glue gun to glue marbles or wooden beads to the underside of the tile (one in each corner).
