Personalized Mouse Pad

Nowadays, everyone needs a mouse pad and a personalized one is a perfect gift. For this project, let your child draw with markers on a white mouse pad. Another option is to use flexible adhesive with any fabric. Older youth might enjoy using technology to create their gift. Choose a digital photo to print on iron-on transfer paper. This image can be ironed on to a blank mouse pad. Click here for detailed instructions.
