There is a shop that's been in my area for years, it's called Pots and Paints it's a neat little shop that pulls the creativity out of you. In the shop they have all the pottery you would like, you pick a piece, and you paint the piece. Once you are finished, they glaze and fire your pottery. A week later, you pick it up-VIOLA!
Both my girls are artists, especially my 5 yr old. Tonight I am taking my girls and hopefully a few friends and their daughters to paint some pots! I will come back with a full review of Pots and Paints including pictures!
