For the holidays, my students make a hot plate out of a 12-inch solid white tile. I purchase the tiles at a local home improvement supply store, and the students decorate the top with permanent markers. I spray the tiles with an acrylic paint sealer, which is also available at the same store. The students glue felt squares to the bottom for table protection. These hot plates have been a popular and useful gift as well as being applicable to all holidays.
