Father's Day Gifts

Need a gift idea for the kiddos to do for father's day?  Here are some great ones to make your own and give to Dad.

Coupon book:
Have the kids help decide what "coupons" they want to give to dad.

Examples of coupons:
 “I’ll read you a bed time story”, “One giant bear hug”,
”I’ll rake the lawn”, and “Wash your car”

Decorate a cooking apron
Get fabric paint and have the kids go crazy on an apron.

Salt Dough & Pea Gravel "Dad Rocks" rock

1/4 cup salt
cup flour
1/4 cup water

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.

Mix flour, salt and water together in a bowl. If dough is too sticky add small amounts of flour until it is doughy and pliable. Be careful not to add too much as the dough will dry out and your creation will crack.

Shape a piece of the dough into a ball in your hands. Place the ball on the cookie sheet and flatten to about 1/2" thickness.

Carefully select pieces of pea gravel to spell out "DAD ROCKS". Press them firmly but gently into the salt dough.

Bake your "rock" for 2-2.5 hours until completely dry.
Remove from oven and allow to cool before handling or removing from cookie sheet.

Optional: You can spray your creation with acrylic sealer or paint it with a clear coat sealer.

The fastest way to a man's heart is through his stomach.
