PROJECT : Cool Daddy

June 13, 1996|TRACY CROWE MCGONIGLE

Don't leave Dad standing by the hot coals without a cold one. Make sure his drink stays cool with a personalized coldie holder for Father's Day.

You can use a holder you already have or buy one wherever thermoses and coolers are sold. You can find them for cups, cans and sport bottles, but a martini holder? Now, that would be perfect for Dad (something for you inventors to think about).

Using fabric paint, let the kids make their marks. Dip a sponge into the paint and blot it all over the surface to cover the existing design. Fabric paint, which is available at craft stores, comes in easy-to-use squeeze bottles so you don't even need a brush. Just hold the tip of the bottle to the surface and squeeze gently while drawing.

Follow directions for drying time; some paints take 24 hours to dry and 72 hours before exposure to moisture.
