crafting with grandma - Sharpie Coasters

Sharpie tiles - http://blog.sharpie.com/category/ideas/While I firmly believe every day you spend with a grandchild is a grandparent's day filled with the best "gift" of all - time with a grandchild - September 8, 2013 is the "official" date for Grandparent's Day this year. Since I know many of my readers are moms and dads, I thought it would be fun for the next couple weeks to share ideas of fun projects you might have your children work on so they can give them to their grandparents on Grandparent's Day. As I looked for these ideas, I found a fun one on Pinterest for Sharpie Coasters!

Just follow this link and you'll find a list of simple supplies and directions - your children will have so much fun designing colorful coasters with which they can surprise and delight their grandparents! While you are helping them with their coasters, take a pencil and trace around their hand on the back side - then trace around the hand with another Sharpie - this will add a personal "touch" which grandparents will treasure! (Have your children sign and date their art work, too!) Enjoy!
