Great idea for kids!!!! Buy a ceramic white plate (dollar store) and let the kids make a picture with sharpie pens, then bake @350 for 30 minutes. PS, Mr. Clean Magic eraser will take off any unbaked sharpie mistakes. Cut a small piece off and use tweezers for a tiny eraser, or use the whole sponge to erase an entire design until perfect enough to bake on permanently.
My cooperating teacher did this in her classroom. the kids loved it, and they were all different! the boys added little bow-ties and ties and things and the girls added hair bows and jewelry. precious and a great winter craft!
