This easy Homemade Dough Art is a great project the kids can do for Father’s Day!
The kids had so much fun making a homemade dough art gift for me last month that they decided to do one for Father’s Day this year.
It can be challenging buy a gift for the Dads in our lives because each one has his own personality that makes him special to us and our little ones. With a home made picture frame you can add pieces that make the gift unique. Let’s start by making the dough. Placing it on parchment paper and rolling it out. Once the dough is rolled out, have the kids line a ruler and cut to make the out edge of the frame. Measure the inner portion of the frame so it can fit your picture and and the outer portion to fit the hand made pieces the kids will make. My kids and husband are pretty silly and have lots of fun together.
- One thing they enjoy doing is watching Bigfoot shows and growling at each other hence the Bigfoot cast on the frame.
- My husband LOVES sports and when he was a kid had a pretty mean slider.
- The other love my husband has is music. Not only does he play guitar but he is a collector.
Each of the kids worked to make the little pieces to put on the frame. We put a little water between the frame and the piece. The previous dough art we made, I was a bit impatient and cooked too high. For this one we baked for 1 1/2 hours at 200 degrees. We had a much better result. The dough baked with out browning or burning. My lighting is a bit off on this one so it golden. There is so much more you can do with this.
- Add more pieces
- Paint white, add a finger print for each little one and write their name.
- Paint all sorts of colors.
- Paint it and spray with a clear gloss to finish
If you were to make this, what little pieces would you put on the frame?
