Write Message to Dad on Platter
Before writing on platter, kids should practice writing their message on scrap paper using the ceramic marker (Image 1). Once comfortable with marker and letter spacing, write Father’s Day message on rim of platter (Images 2 and 3). Once paint has dried to the touch, flip platter over and sign and date the back of platter (Image 4).
Using ceramic paints and an artist brush, help kids paint a design on rim of platter. Allow paint to dry for 24 hours or amount of time specified in manufacturer's instructions. Tip: If you wish, decorate platter with images representing Dad's favorite hobby, like fishing, golf or football.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees and bake platter for 35 minutes to set the paint. Once cooled, platter is dishwasher safe and ready to use.
