Last minute Father’s Day gift

Father's Day 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!!
