Father’s Day Gift Idea: Soda Pop Candy

Here is a cute Father’s Day gift idea for those dads with a sweet tooth.  All you need are old soda bottles and dad’s favorites treats.  Fill the bottles with the goodies then place the cap back on.  I know IBC Root Beer bottlecaps can be twisted back on, but I am not sure about other soda brands.  Then you just use scrapbooking paper or contact paper for labels and to cover the box.  It might even be cute to place pictures of the kiddos on the bottles as labels or to have the kids write messages to dad on them.

Thanks for another great idea,  The Idea Room!


Father’s Day Craft: Candy Card

This is another pinterest find, thanks to Bits of Everything.  It is the perfect Father’s Day present for all those candy lovers out there.  My husband would drool over a card like this!  You can customize it with your own sayings and candy choices or for those of us lacking in the creativity department you can just copy this example.  I am sure the kids would love helping to create this card… and taste testing the goodies along the way.
