For Father’s Day gifts last year, my first grade students and I made these cute little picture frames.
Students brought in a photo of their dad and we placed them inside the frames once they were finished.
All supplies used to make this cute picture frame were purchased from my local dollar store.
Foam letters, wooden frames, acrylic paint, rocks, glue and googly eyes.
Total cost per gift: $3.00
This year, we made personalized coffee cups for the dads!
Total cost per gift: $3.00 (which included cute little red gift bags to store them in).
1. Students used permanent markers to draw, colour and make designs on the mugs being very careful not to smudge their drawings as they go.
2. I then baked the mugs in the oven at 175 degrees for 30 minutes.
Once dry, we wrapped the mugs in tissue paper and placed them in cute, red gift bags so they were ready for transport home.
Note: The mugs cannot be washed in a dishwasher. They must be gently hand washed in order to ensure the designs to do not come off. ** Although there is an acrylic spray you can purchase at a craft store that you can spray onto the mugs for extra protection.
The kids are super excited to take their mugs home today and give them to Dad on Sunday!
