    Default What did you get for your first fathers day?

    DP is getting a card I've made with DS foot & hand prints on it & a photo of DS in a nice frame for his desk at work. My DP doesn't like the "commercialism" of these sorts of days, so he'd be annoyed at me if I spent too much money

    You can get this stuff at spotlight that's like coloured modelling clay that you bake in a low oven at home. It's great I used to make beads and stuff out of it in highschool

    1 Cup flour
    1 Cup salt
    up to half a Cup water (just add enough to get a good dough you can knead without crumbling or being sticky

    Knead

    Place in a bowl and press down firmly.

    Tease the edges away from bowl.

    Flip out onto plate and you should have a round mound with a nice smooth surface to make your imprints in.

    Use a straw to make a hanging hole if that's what you intend to do.

    Then in oven at 100degrees for 3 hrs so all moisture dries out.

    You can also just use salt dough. I cup salt, I cup flour, half cup water, bake at 100 degrees for 3 hours. That's what we've done. We're going to glaze it and make an outdoor stepping stone. Then we can do a new one every year!

    Ds painted a rock at kindy and stuck googley eyes on it. The kindy put it in a cute little gift wrapped cellophane bag with a card that he made.
    He's only three so it wasn't too amazing but DH absolutely loved it because it was his first "made by DS" father's day gift .
