Allison McDonald is a former preschool teacher who now spends her days learning with her 3-year-old son and baby daughter. She lives in the Seattle area with her husband and two children.

This year we are making mugs for our Grandmas with my son's art work on it and this cake in a mug recipe inside!  Here is the how to.

Start with some fun - not everyday paints. We used some kid friendly craft paints. The reason I said not everyday is because for something special like this you want your child to feel special while making it.


Take a picture of the painting .

Upload the picture.

Pop over to a photo gift website and choose a plain white mug that is microwavable if you want to include the recipe. When it arrives Write out the recipe on pretty paper and use the original painting as the card for the gift!
