CRAFT SPECIAL: Dad's Day Craft – Make a Memory Mug!

 
Father's Day is next Sunday...eek! What are you gonna give dear ol' Dad to say thanks for cheering you on at all those soccer games, cooking you pancakes on the weekends or taking you to baseball games? Give him a presh li'l prezzie and remind him of all the good times when you make your own memory mug.
 
It's easy to do and super fun, too!

What You'll Need:
 

White coffee mug
Enamel paints – any colors you want

Paint brush
Mementos of you and your Dad – pics, concert tix, sea shells from a vacay

 

What You'll Do: 


1. Buy a new coffee mug, or use an old one – just make sure that it's clean and dry before you use it.

2. With the enamel paint, be creative and decorate the mug with all sorts of fun stuff. Write "I Love You, Dad," draw hearts, stars, and other patterns with all different colors. With a thinner paint brush, you can even do stick figures of you and your dad together, or write a longer message to him.

3. Once you're finished decorating, bake the mug in the oven at a low temp. See the directions on the enamel paint bottle for how long to bake it. You can also leave the mug out to dry, which can take a few days.

4. Once the mug is all dry, get ready to load the inside with all sorts of goodies for dear ol' Dad. Include funny pics, movie ticket stubs from your fave flicks, silly sayings that you two share and of course a little note about how much you love him! Another great idea? Slip in some coupons that entitle daddyo to some favors. Taking out the trash, doing dishes or making his fave dish will def put a smile on dad's face!
