Father’s Day

Treat for daddy

Those of you born in the 70′s/80′s.  What does this remind you of?!?

I hadn’t planned on getting a card for hubs this year.  I’m tired of always seeing the same cards.  Some are funny, some are crude, some are way too sappy. 

I found this new greeting card company called Treat so I browsed there for a bit.  I then found them on Facebook and saw that the first card is free.  Ok…why not.  I looked around and found the perfect card.  I’d love to hear from you if your hubby is as big a Star Wars fan as mine!

Inside it says:

Needless to say he loved it!  We were going to just make cards this year along with our salt dough handprints but it was a nice ‘treat’ to try a card for free.  In case you are looking for a card…your first one is free too.  I just hopped over there to look at more cards…there is a new free card promotion going on right now!

I know many of us do fun giveaways and reviews.  I just want to let you know that this isn’t part of any of that.  I wasn’t compensated at all for this post. I ordered my card using an internet-wide promotional code they had on their website. I’m just genuinely happy to find a great new place to find greeting cards!  I wanted to share with you in case you are also in need of a free card.

Father’s Day Salt Dough Handprints

Looking for a quick , easy, messy craft for the boys of course I turned to Pinterest!   The original source from the picture I pinned is from The Imagination Tree. It’s a really cute, really fun craft.

This is part one of the craft.

Materials needed (per child): 

1 cup salt

1 cup plain flour

1/2 ish cup of water (play around with it, might need more or less depending on how long they play with it!)

That’s it!  All the materials needed are in our cupboards already.

Flour & salt in a bowl.

Add water & get messy!

Once playtime is finished, roll into a ball.

Flatten & press hands for imprinting. The big one had the great idea to be sure to do ‘which handed we are’ which means left for him & right for the little one.  I wouldn’t have even thought about doing it that way!

Bake at 200 degrees for 3 hours.  We ended up flipping ours after 3 hours and baking a little more.  They were a little wet still on the bottoms.

Before baking…(lefty)

After baking…(righty).  We didn’t paint ours yet. Going to save that as an activity to do with daddy.
