Invite a local pottery store to advertise to your community and cross-market at this resident event! Host outdoors picnic area or indoors. Pottery store will give you some free and or reduced priced unfinished large coffee cups or small plates for the kids to choose. Ask the Pottery Store to supply paint or again reduced the paint required for art on these ceramic pieces. Add a small pizza party in honor of the special lady who is parenting them.

Also works for Fathers Day and Grandparents Day!
