Grandparents Day Painted Pot Holder
Posted on September 04 2019
If your family is anything like mine, Grandparents are always there to save the day! Whether near or far, they can always make kids feel extra loved and special – no matter how many grandkids they have. Show them they are appreciated with these super cute custom painted potholders!
My parents are always ready to step in and help with the kids at moments notice, all the while feeding my kids the sugary snack I wasn’t allowed to have as a child. Grandparents Day is the perfect time to spoil them back with a lunch date, extra-long Facetime if they live out of town, and gifts made by their favorite little people.
Not only is this a useful present for Grandma & Grandpa, but a great rainy-day activity that will exercise fine motor skills through painting with fingers and brushes. Also, a good opportunity to sit down and discuss family bonds and relationships, whether it’s through blood, marriage, or friendship.
How to Make Grandparent’s Day Painted Potholders
Here’s what you’ll need:
• Solid color potholder
