Personalized gifts are a great way to show others you care. Personalized gifts are also a great way to immortalized memories of your own family. Create lasting and cherished gifts with MakIt. Since 1969 MakIt has been capturing kids artwork on something useful instead of it being destroyed by a spilled water glass or thrown away.
MakIt started with the Make a Plate but today you can create on bowls, mugs, tumblers and plates. You can also make photo gifts with your own photographic images. MakeIt uses a time-tested process that embeds a persons drawing or image into their MakIt item, making it impossible to wear out or flake off. This proprietary process ensures your pictures become permanent treasures in your home.
All of the MakeIt products are nontoxic, BPA-Free, and dishwasher safe. They are also proudly made in the USA, and all of their materials and components are purchased from American businesses.
From MakeIt I received a Prepaid Art Plate Kit. It included. Washable markers, and 25 blank templates to create a break-resistant, durable melamine plate that will measure 10 inches in diameter. The kit comes with instructions on what to do and not to do. This includes: only draw on one side of the template, only use washable markers like the ones included in the kid and do not put important info at the edges of your template as it could get cut off.
I read my kids the instruction’s and gave them the templates and let them draw. They created power rangers faces, pictures of Angry Birds and even some of their own drawing. Their own personal drawings of nature are my favorite. Wyatt, well he scribbled a lot. I traced his hand on one sheet and boy was it hard to have him keep his hand still. Karolyn, got super flustered and kept ripping up her pictures and throwing them away. She is such a perfectionist. Kyle, He draws his pictures and they can be wacky but he loves him. He is so easy going and I love it.
Both boys only drew on a few templates and were happy and off to watch Scooby-doo. Karolyn however sat forever drawing and perfecting then throwing away what she didn’t like. I actually had to suggest to her that maybe she walk away for a few minutes.
When we were done we gathered up the templates we liked best and put it in the addresses and stamped envelope we received and sent them to be made into plates. We are looking forward to receiving our plates really soon. I will be sharing a picture of our plates via Facebook when we receive them back so be on the lookout.
