Paint a personalised plate and coffee cup for dad as a homemade Father’s day present! So easy to do and a special little gift that will be cherished each time he has his espresso and toast in the mornings!
Whenever Father’s day comes around I like the girl to make something small and simple that can become a little memory keepsake for the future, as a marker of their age and stage of development at the time of giving. Be that a simple drawing in a nice new frame or these cute little footprint and baby handprint plaques from kitchen ingredients, just something lovely that says “we love you daddy!” and doesn’t cost a lot of money. Personalised gifts are always my favourites and the ones I treasure the most!
This year we bought some porcelain and glass paints in the art shop and used them to paint and decorate a little coffee cup and side plate for daddy’s breakfast time! Their dad loves to drink espressos and who doesn’t need a plate with their name and face painted onto it, right?! The nice thing about these paints is that they don’t need to be heated in the oven to be sealed, they just need to air dry to remain watertight and permanent. They painted a face onto the little side plate and C. wrote the word “daddy”. Then they painted sweet little flower decorations around the outside of the coffee cup, with a little secret heart inside at the bottom for him to find when he has drunk it all up! We will give this to him along with some fresh new coffee and some delicious chocolates and of course, those all-important homemade cards!
I can’t find a link to the little paint pots we found, but we’ve used these paint pens in the past and they also do an excellent job, lending themselves to a little more control for younger children.
Do you have any plans for Father’s day?
