Fathers Day scribble picture

For Fathers Day last year I spent £30 on an unframed print from Not On The High Street, it’s lovely and he thought it was brill but still £30 and I had to search high and low for a frame to fit the awkward size print. This year me and my toddler got clever and made things and then framed them in cheap IKEA frames, they looked fantastic and he loved them even more than his print as our son had made them for him.

One of the things we made was a scribble picture using masking tape and crayon, it was so ridiculously simple but when framed it looks brill and actually I can picture it on one of these over priced gift websites.

To make the scribble picture we used: 

  • Masking tape
  • Pencil crayons
  • Card
  • Picture frame

I used the masking tape to mark out the words on the card and then stuck the card to the dining table.

I then handed my toddler the crayon box and set him to work 🙂 He loved just getting to go crazy scribbling all over the piece of card without mummy saying “try to stay in the lines”.

Once he was finished I showed him how to carefully peel off the tape and he was really excited to see the words appear, I don’t think he had understood until that point quite what we were doing.

Once he had finished I wrote a message along the bottom and we framed it and wrapped it up for fathers day. You could use this technique for any occasion though and I’m already thinking of some ideas for Christmas presents.
