Paint BBQ gifts for Dad

wood-handled spatula, fork, and tongs

A Dad and his grill are not soon parted -- in my family, at least. There seems to be something about a Dad and his grill. Is it the scent of the briquettes, the power of the gas flame, the charbroiled goodness?

Perhaps the bond between a Dad and his grill is one of life's unsolvable mysteries, but we do know that anything BBQ would make a great gift for Dad this Father's Day. If you can make it yourself, you've just trumped the masses.

Custom-painting a BBQ apron, mitts, and grill tools is an easy way to tell Dad you love him -- and his hobby -- and it is something you can do with the kids. You'll need a canvas apron, solid-colored oven mitts, and wood-handled BBQ tools, like a long-handled fork or spatula. Some fabric and acrylic paints round out the list.

You can paint anything that says, "I love you Dad," and makes the keepsake gifts something special for him. Happy painting!
