Father’s Day is almost here! I know every year, I see several tutorials for gifts that kiddos can make their father but what about YOUR father? This year, I decided to make a Father’s Day gift for my dad and thought I would share it in case you also want to make something for your dad. Since my dad has a weakness for peanut butter oaties, I decided to make him some with real flour. So lucky for him. I also decided to put them in a painted jar that he can take to work and use as a pencil jar.
First, I used some ceramic flower pots (aff link) and some paint to personalize the gift. I used a blue background and then red for the accent since my dad’s favorite color is red. Since this is a custom gift for Father’s Day. I just had to add my fingerprint to the craft. 😉
I used my thumb to make some hearts and then wrote “Love, Jen” on the side so no other kid could claim the gift and then I got some clear favor bags (aff link) to stuff the cookies into. My dad was in town so I was able to give him his gift in person but if not, these are pretty sturdy for shipping if you wrap them with bubble wrap. Overall, it was a fun craft and my dad really enjoyed it.
