Green Gifts For Dad

Green Father's Day

Green Father's Day

 

 

Father’s Day is almost here and I thought some of you might need some assistance in finding great green ideas for dad that aren’t ties. I know my dad always appreciates small things that are creative and from the heart like most parents but there is no reason you can’t go green too.

1. Try fixing something of his that is broken. I am sure your father has something/s lying around that he has been meaning to get fixed. If you can fix it do it. If not find someone who can.

2. Make him a craft out of things your father loves from around the house. I don’t mean to take apart his gadgets or hobbies but if you know there are certain colors, materials, products etc he favors why not make him something he can truly enjoy. Creativity can help you save money and share a moment with dear old dad.

10.  Good ol’ breakfast in bed is always a pleaser.  Make your dad his favorite meal out of green and local products.  Why not bring all of his meals to him for the day.  Get dad his favorite snacks and foods to enjoy on is special day.

Fathers Day is around the corner and you know how they love handmade gifts from their loved ones. Handmade gifts and ties right? They always want ties. Here is a creative and yummo way to show Dad that you love him.

Ingredients:
Organic rectangle shaped crackers
Organic sliced cheeses (you can use any kind even possibly spreadable but that might get messy)
Organic red or green bell pepper
Organic pepperoni (you can use vegetarian pepperoni as well)
Organic sliced cold cuts (you can use vegetarian cold cuts as well)
Organic scallions
Organic yellow mustard
Organic olives (green or yellow)

 

Directions:

1. For each shirt, top a cracker with a rectangle of cheese or cold cut.
2. Next, cut shirt details, such as a collar, pocket, tie, or button seam, out of olives, cheese, peppers, cold cuts or pepperoni.
3. Use thinly sliced scallions or dots of yellow mustard for buttons.
4. Get creative with it. You can make other things as well that remind you of dad. Cut out a wallet or a mug maybe a television.

Dad will get a kick out of your creativeness. It will be yummy too. You can try other foods such as hot dogs, pretzels, bread, ketchup, anything really. You can make a bunch of Dad shaped things.
