Great Party Favor
I used these as favors for my 7 year old's birthday party. The girls loved them and all of the moms commented on how nice they were. The nice part was that they worked as a craft project during the party, then we filled them with candy and stickers to use as party favors. Can't wait to use them again.

Polar Express Party
I actually went searching for these for my classroom last holiday season as a compliment to our Polar Express Holiday Party (wear pajamas to school, drink cocoa, eat cookies, etc.). I found some in a store but was not willing to spend $5.00 per mug, per student to decorate. I was thrilled to find these when thumbing through the Oriental Trading Catalog and ordered them for my class. The price is great, much better than $5.00 per mug in a store. The drawback is as follows...I did read that you needed to remove the paper insert before washing. When I took the rim off to explore my purchase, I understood why. It is a pretty loose fit. If you don't want to botter with removing it each time, you could suggest decorating the paper only with crayon as to preserve the picture. The wax from the crayon should repell the water and keep the picture in good condition. I am excited about having the students decorate their own mug for our party. It will give them something personal to remind them of the experience and serve as a somewhat educational experience for my students.

Based on the price, this item is flimsy.

Mugs not good enough for Adults
I wanted to use these to insert printouts of classic paintings and give as gifts to adults. Not a good idea. The handle is TOTALLY FLIMSY. I guess they can use them as a knick knack on a book shelf.

Our kids enjoyed...
Our Jr. Youth Group liked the idea that they were able to personalize their own mug an dpu whatever thy wanted on it. Not sure how it will hold up with use because the paper has to be taken out before washing each time but it would always be simple to cut a spare piece that fits in the mug to use as a pattern.Overall a good craft!

I bought these for an upcoming employee Christmas party. I got pictures of everyone and made individual picture mugs, add a packet of hot chocolate, and order the candy cane spoons and it turned out perfect! I'm excited for everyone to get theirs!

I used these as favors for my 6 year old's party. Each child decorated one then used it as their snow cone cup. The other mom's thought this was a great idea and it's something they can use again and again.
