This past Saturday my husband, son, and I went out to Color Me Mine to attend the first session of their Paint-Me-A-Story holiday series. We had an absolute blast! Everyone was very helpful, friendly, and professional, they made us feel very welcome.
When we arrived, we walked to the back room, behind a curtain, so they could hold the Paint-Me-A-Story event away from the other patrons there to paint their own pottery.
They start by reading a captivating children’s story, had a little snack, and then started painting! The kids are able to choose from quite a few colors to create their own masterpieces!
First, they worked on painting an Owl ornament, to match the theme of the story.
Then, they begun the plate, where we get their hand-print memorialized! (Moms love this stuff!)
One of the best things about the experience, is that it is a great activity for kids of many ages. My son is 2-1/2, but there were a few older boy, I’d guess between 6- 11, and a young girl, I’d guess 1-1/2, who were having a great time too!
After the kids are done, the studio holds on to the pottery to fire and glaze it, and they’ll call you within a week or so to come pick up the final product once it’s all complete! So for your $25 fee, you get story time, snacks, and two separate unique, hand-painted pieces of pottery.

In addition to the Paint-Me-A-Story Holiday Series, you can come paint at the studios any time! Choose a piece, paint it, they’ll fire it, and you take it home! They also have awesome birthday parties! You can do Paint-Me-A-Story with one of their books, or choose your own.
Other reasons to party with Color Me Mine? Anniversaries, Baby Showers, Girls’ Night Out, and Corporate Team Building, to name a few!
I highly recommend them, we had a ton of fun and I think you will too!
*Pro-tip – they have a Groupon deal that JUST came out! Be sure to look for it to save a bit if you go paint!
