Cooking with kids is always fun and a great way to sneak in some Sensory Play Based Learning. How about a lesson in measurement mathematics? Gluesticksblog.com offers up some easy barbecue sauce recipes for dear old Dad. I think these make a great grandpa gift too. I'm in love with those mini-mason jars, how about you?

Ask your preschooler a few questions about Daddy, plug them into a favorite photo, and give it a nice frame. Daddy will be proud to sit this on his desk at work. Faboo!

These photo blocks from Stories by Me blog are a fun and unique Father's Day gift that is easy to make.

Okay... I'm doing this one from Lil' Luna for sure. I have some mini Coca-Cola Bottles that I've been saving for a rainy day project. Maybe fill them with pretzel bits, peanuts, spices? 

Can you imagine the possibilities? Ours might not turn out as perfect as this one, but that's no reason not to give it a go. The kids will have fun decorating the packages and filling up the bottles, and you'll have fun when everyone comments on how creative you are.

And, while we're on the subject of pop bottle caps, how about making a bottle cap key chain for Father's Day? I searched around for an easy tool-less option and came up blank. This one offers the use of a hammer and nail rather than a drill. 

I'm wondering if you could make it more kid-friendly and easy by hot gluing two pop bottle caps together and inserting the necessary key chain bobbles in the middle. It's worth a try. Choose Daddy's favorite drink and make a cool keychain like this one at Scrap Reused and Recycled Art Projects.
