I picked up all my supplies at my local Dollar Tree.   OK so I had the Great Value straws already on hand but you get the idea!  (They sell straws at the Dollar Tree also!)  In most cases, you can use things you already have around the house!  These are things we can always improvise on supplies!

Supplies needed:

  • 3 small tins, buckets or baskets
  • Small Die Cut Numbers
  • Q-Tips
  • Drinking straws
  • tape

Have the kids go on a hunt for the supplies…it will keep them busy!  {wink}

Dad’s BBQ Squirt Bottle

Do you want a really simple and practical gift to make and give for Father’s day?  I have just the thing for you…my BBQ Squirt Bottle.  Most dads, uncles, grandpas and the special men in our lives spend some summer time in front of a grill.  Most of the time they have a huge cup of water or a squirt bottle to help tame the flames!  Here is a fun one to fix up and personalize for your special man!

BBQ Squirt Bottle - Father's Day Gift Idea at thatswhatchesaid.net

This started out a long time ago.  I bought the one below for my dad at the Christmas Store at my grade school.  I think I probably spent a good $2 of my hard earned money on it :)  It was an old dish soap bottle that had “Dad’s BBQ Squirt Bottle” written on it with paint markers and some flames drawn on it.  Fast forward to just last year.  MY DAD WAS STILL USING IT!  It had to be at least 25 years old!  It was an antique people!  (That just scared me that it was 25 years ago—I am not that old!)  OK so I digress…however it had seen better days so I whipped one up for my small people to give him to replace the old one.
