Busy, busy here finishing up Father’s Day gifts with my child care group. We made each of the dads a coaster with a cup filled with snacks. Here’s the one Brett made:
Father’s Day Cup & Penny Coaster Gift
To make the coasters, we started out with tin coasters from the Target dollar spot. There were 4 in a pack for $3. I figured we could do something with them…but they would have to be covered or painted since this is how they looked originally . That’s not going to work for preschoolers!
Then I poured Envirotex over them. It’s high gloss finish that hardens. It takes 4-7 hours to dry and 72 hours to cure so by overnight they were pretty drying for wrapping up.
I liked the shape of these coasters but I think the same thing could be accomplished with jar lids. I think they would make great coasters sealed with Envirotex!
Some of the finished coasters:
Each child decorated a “cup sleeve” to personalize their cups.
Happy Father’s Day!
