MAKE DAD’S DAY – POUR HIM TEA INTO HIS OWN BIG CUP

New Zealand Woman’s Weekly - - THIS WEEK IN... -

1 Thor­oughly clean the out­side of your mug with win­dow cleaner and a pa­per towel. Al­low to dry.

2 Start­ing with the letter “A” in the mid­dle, ar­range your letter stick­ers to spell “DAD”. 3 Place star stick­ers around the word.

4 Colour in the mug with a per­ma­nent marker, mak­ing sure that the letters and stars are out­lined.

5 Al­low the mug to dry for 24 hours be­fore care­fully re­mov­ing the stick­ers (use a blunt knife or sharp nails to scrape them off!). If you ac­ci­den­tally scrape some of the marker off, fill it in with more of the same colour once all the stick­ers are re­moved.

6 Place the mug in a cold oven. Turn the oven on to 200°C. Once it has fully heated, bake the mug for 45 min­utes. Turn the oven off and al­low to cool com­pletely in the oven. Even though you have baked the mug, gen­tle hand­wash­ing is still rec­om­mended.

This is a great project for kids this Fa­ther’s Day. Let them go wild with Dad’s favourite colours, then bake their cre­ation so he can keep the art­work for­ever. Made to trea­sure! Alice Arn­dell CRAFT EDITOR
