My daughters and I had the unique opportunity to create our own plates with a MakIt Personalize Art Plate Kit. Each kit comes with a set of markers to use on the templates and 25 blank templates- plenty to come up with multiple designs, get lots of practice, etc. Once the templates are completed simply return them to MakIt with the special prepaid certificate and MakIt turns your template(s) into beautiful 10 inch, break-resistant, durable melamine plates. The plates are nontoxic, BPA-free, and dishwasher safe. Do not put them in the microwave and do not use a rough sponge on them and you’ll be able to enjoy them for years to come.
My daughters loved each making a special plate for me for Mother’s Day but the plates would also make great Father’s Day gifts. After they finished with their drawings for my Mother’s Day plates they each said they wanted to have a special plate of their own. My older daughter drew her own designs on her plate and she asked my younger daughter if she could make a special plate for her, too. What a nice sisterly offer! So that’s what she did. She designed a special plate just for her little sister to enjoy.
It was exciting when a few weeks later we received the package with the plates. My girls were not only excited to see their finished products that were created from their design templates but my younger daughter was excited to see what her sister had created for her. These plates make such a fun and personal gift.

The surprises didn’t stop with my daughter’s surprise plate. I got in on the action, too. I designed a special “Happy Birthday” plate that we will be using to celebrate each family member’s birthday. When it is someone’s birthday in our family they will get to choose their favorite meal and I will serve it to them on this special “Happy Birthday” plate. I had started this idea several years ago with a plate that I had painted at one of those paint your own pottery places but it broke after only one use. 🙁 I was excited when I realized that I could start this tradition again with a MakIt plate that is break-resistant. I can’t wait until the next birthday to start the tradition again. What traditions do you have in your family?
