Father’s Day was particularly tricky. He just started school (a program in plumbing) and with a cut in our income finances were particularly tight.
However, I wanted to do something. I also wanted a gift that was practical and useful.
Originally I thought of tools but alas they were over budget. Instead I found a tool storage bag for just under $20.00.
I also wanted the gift to be from our daughter so I picked up some fabric markers so she could decorate.
The project would have turned out ‘nicer’ if we had used fabric paint but for an 18 month paint can get a little too messy.
Here are some snapshots of her progress.
She really enjoyed herself and I think it was a great developmental activity for her. Check out the concentration on her face.
Tips: Put your child in an outfit you do not care about. We had our daughter in her swimsuit. They will draw on themselves — it’s just going to happen.
Have you had your toddler decorate anything for you? How did it turn out?
Let me know in the comments.
