Last minute Father's Day gift
Ok ... it's the day before Father's Day ... do you need a quick, simple yet personal gift idea that the children can make?? Don't have time to run to the store?
Try personalizing a coffee mug!
Get a solid color ceramic mug and some Sharpie (or permanent) markers - you probably already have these items in your home. Have the child/children draw or write on the mug with the markers. If a mistake is made, a wet paper towel can help to rub it off if done quickly (we tried this ... it works!)
Older children can write a special message, poem or words to describe their Dad, Grandfather or special recipient.
The Final Step
NOW, to make the permanent marker last -- put it in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Voila!!
Add a little something SWEET...
We had a Facebook comment suggesting that you could take this idea one step further and bake a CAKE in the mug as well! What a cool idea ... and again, the ingredients are probably already sitting in your pantry! I did a Google search and found a link for "How to Make Cake in a Mug". Yum! Enjoy!
Happy Father's Day!!
