For the Best Dad!

Looking for a great, easy Father’s Day gift that your kids can do without much help? 

Perfect for little hands to make for Dad, here’s an easy home-made present that can either hang on a wall or decorate his desk.  Start by pouring yourself a cup of coffee and sending the kids out to find rocks, pebbles or any objects (that are not alive) that dad might like…

kids gathering rocksSupplies:
The only supply you may need to purchase is  Air-dry clay – available in many colors at your local craft supply store. You will also need:

• Wax paper
• Small rocks, pebbles or found objects such as bottle caps or nuts and bolts
• Optional: Saw tooth picture hanger
• Optional: Extra embellishments such as paint, shells, beads, marbles, etc.

1. Place the air-dry clay on a sheet of wax paper and using your hands or a rolling pin, form a flattened disk about ½” thick. Other shapes would be fun also – a triangle, star or a heart for example.

2. Spell out whatever you wish in small pebbles, ours says ‘DAD ROCKS’! To help space out the letters, we used a pencil point to mark where each pebble should go. Press each pebble into the clay in your chosen pattern. Add any other embellishments such as shells or marbles at this point.

3. Carefully turn the project over and press the saw tooth picture hanger gently into the top center approx. 1 inch below the top edge. Take care not to push the hanger through the front of the project.

4. Allow your project to air dry overnight. If you choose to add paint embellishments, add them after the clay is dry. Turn the plaque over and with either paint or a sharpee marker, write your child’s name and the date.
