I ran across this idea when I was searching online for a Father’s Day craft for my 3’s Sunday School class. I thought it was the perfect gift for the handy men in our life! When buying a hammer, I did make sure to get one they could actually use… the ones our W@l-m@rt had were light duty – not something to do actual work. We found our hammers at our local hardware store for $9 each.
I gave each hammer a coat of white paint. I taped off the head and wrapped a baggie around it. I used a strip of tape to tape off a spot for the name label area… definitely not necessary.
Cayson had a blast painting! He was pretty mad that he didn’t get to keep one though. He kept telling me that his hammers were “old.”
I used a Sharpie to label them and then sprayed a couple coats of poly on them.
They were a huge hit with the granddads.
We gave one to Dusty too but I didn’t get a picture of that… we spent Father’s Day nursing a sick boy so it was very low-key.
