Father’s Day is this upcoming Sunday and you should make it a special day for your dad! Instead of spending a lot of money and energy trying to find the perfect gift, try making one. Your dad will love the thought and time put into the craft.
Words On A Mug
Sharpies (various colors)
All you need to do is use the stickers to write out a message on the mug. It can be “I love you daddy”, “Best dad ever”, or a more personal message. Use the sharpies to create a design on the mug. It can be scribbles, a pattern, stripes, polka dots, or another design that will help make the message stand out. Bake the mug for 30 mins at 350 degrees then let it cool off. Lastly, peel off the stickers and your work is done! You can also do something similar with plates, bowls, or anything else your dad may use on a regular basis.
Small square tiles
Printed photos on paper
Hot glue gun
Cut out the photos and use the Modge Podge to stick them to the tile. If you’re worried the pictures are not going to stay on well enough then sand down the top of the tile a little bit. While the Modge Podge is drying, cut out small squares of felt to hot glue gun on to the bottom corner of each tile. This will protect the surface you place the coasters on.
Transformed Deck Of Cards
Deck of cards
Two metal rings
On each card, write something you love about your dad or write down a memory you have shared together. If your children are too small to write, have them draw a picture on each card. Punch two holes on the same side of each card then place the rings through the holes to use as binding.
Hand Print Mold
2 cups of flour
1 cup of salt
Metallic spray paint
Remember when you made a mold of your hand prints in school? This is the same idea but a little more sophisticated. Mix the flour, salt, and water together until it feels like play-dough then make an imprint with your hand. Place the molding in the oven to bake for 2 hours at 250 degrees. Once the mold is cool, spray paint it and let it dry.
