Shutterfly's community blog. It's just a simple paper weight, but I believe all kids love play dough and rocks so it's kind of a perfect craft! The link above will take you to the Shutterfly blog, which is chock full of fun ideas. However, I want to specifically point you to the writer's own craft blog for the instructions. I love her projects and would like to give her some blogger love. So, go check out Crafts By Amanda. You'll find the recipe for the dough, instructions for baking it rock hard and lots of other fun stuff I'm sure.
Amazing Moms has a fun idea for personalizing everything Dad needs for a great Father's Day BBQ. I don't know about yours, but my spouse doesn't wear an apron when he grills. The hot pads would be handy though, and everything is cute enough that even if he didn't use them they would be nice keepsakes. Follow the link for these instructions, and explore the site for many more fun plans!
this idea for monogrammed tools. I wouldn't expect him to actually use these tools - he has his favorite, professional grade hammers and such that he never deviates from - but these could be a cute reminder of his little helpers every time he opened his tool box. I'm even thinking up fun ways these could be mounted or framed for display in his shop. Again, this idea could also be a fun gift for other occasions.
I think these are my favorite projects, but there are so, so many out there it's impossible to not find something perfect for your family. All of the sites I linked to above had tons of other ideas so check them out, and have fun showing Dad some love this weekend!
(I'd love to see what you all did for the special guys in your lives! If you'd like to link to your own blogs or favorite ideas in the comments, please do! I love comments!)
