Looking for an easy Father’s Day gift idea that the kids can make?? The girls and I have been hard at work making and canning batches of homemade BBQ sauce for a gift to Mark this Father’s Day! ((Shhhhhhh… it’s a surprise!)) Mark loves to cook on the grill. I’m pretty sure this is because of his love for danger. He lives on the edge, I tell you!
This was both a fun and educational activity for the girls. Plus, I love how they were actively involved with making a gift for their Dad! Both of the girls enjoyed taking turns measuring out the ingredients.
Grinding up the fresh pepper was a huge hit with Clara!
And squeezing lemon juice from a lemon? What could be better than that??
Later, I covered the bristles of a basting brush with masking tape, and invited Clara to paint the handle in acrylic paint with Mark’s favorite colors.
She was so proud of the brush she hand-painted just for Daddy!
Have I convinced you to give it a try yet?? You can find the recipe we used (and loved) here on FoodNetwork.com. Note: After reading the reviews, I decided to lower the sugar content a bit. Experiment to see what your family loves best!
