  • I love this idea! Make your own home made dry rub for the grilling enthusiast!

    Go to the craft store or grocery store, buy a couple of mason jars, usually found with the canning items. Take them home and let the kids go crazy decorating them! Ribbon, markers, paint markers, stickers, whatever they want.

    Then fill with the dry rub. Recipe is as follows.

    An all-purpose barbecue rub: eight tablespoons (120 ml) paprika, six tablespoons (90 ml) garlic powder, six tablespoons (90 ml) salt, five tablespoons (75 ml) black pepper, three tablespoons (45 ml) cayenne, three tablespoons (45 ml) onion powder, two tablespoons (30 ml) dried oregano, two tablespoons (30 ml) dried thyme. Combine ingredients. You can pre-measure all of the ingredients out for the kids in little glass dishes. They can take turns putting them in the decorated mason jar.

    Ta Da! A special homemade father's day present!

  • Use fabric paint and make him a shirt. Write I LOVE DADDY or something and put their hand prints on it. The paint is like $0.35 a bottle and you can use a plain shirt he already has, maybe one he doesn't wear much.

  • I posted my kids' presents on a journal... I just dumped a bunch of random craft things into a container and let them pull stuff out. Colored paper, foamies, stickers, pompoms... whatever I found. I let the older kids (5 & 3) play with my fancy scissors and paper punches and gave them each a bottle of glue- I helped the baby (he's almost 2) by putting glue on the back of foamies he grabbed and let him put them on the paper- also, I handed him stickers and let him stick those on too... he had a blast.

    The kids are excited to give daddy their works of art tomorrow morning.
