Do you remember you had a favourite plate you always preferred eating from as a kid? Well, we all did and although kids today do things way differently, there are a few things that will never change. And this is one of them. Look closely, we are sure your kid has a favourite mug or bowl too!

Have you ever thought of making this mug more personalized? If not then let your little one unleash his/her craft skills and make the morning cup of milk interesting!

Here’s how you can do it —

1)      First select a plain mug, preferably one that is microwave and dishwasher safe. A ceramic or porcelain mug will do.
