3 Last Minute Father’s Day Ideas

3 Last Minute Father’s Day Ideas

1. About My Dad Video or Paper

I love when you can capture kids thoughts in a video or on paper. I made another video this year of Izzy talking about her Daddy. I also asked her the questions on this FREE printable. At the bottom there is a spot for your kids to draw a picture too!

2. Homemade Cards

We love making homemade cards for all occasions. Father’s Day is no exception. We use card stock paper because it’s thicker, but anything can be used for cards. We have even used some wrapping paper & a paper bag. Izzy loves decorating with stickers, coloring and even adding some words to her cards.

3. Homemade Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner

What does Dad love to eat? Is he a breakfast guy? If so I found this awesome recipe by Tay’s Tasty Table. Check her account out for more amazing recipes and charcuterie board ideas!

Tay’s Tasty Table Biscuits & Sausage Gravy Recipe

Biscuits:

Ingredients
⁃ 4 cups flour
⁃ 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
⁃ 2 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
⁃ 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
⁃ 1/3 cup shortening
⁃ 1/3 cup cold butter cut into cubes
⁃ 1 1/4 cup butter milk ( I just add 1 tablespoon white vinegar to my 1 1/4 cup regular milk to make my own buttermilk)
To make
⁃ preheat oven to 450 degrees F
⁃ Combine dry ingredients in a bowl and mix
⁃ Add shortening and cold butter to the flour mixture and mix with hands (or pastry cutter) until crumbly
⁃ Add buttermilk and stir
⁃ Place dough on floured surface and knead just until combined
⁃ Flatten into a circle about 1/2 inch thick
⁃ Use biscuit cutter (I used a wine glass) to cut biscuits and place on baking sheet
⁃ Bake for about 10 minutes or until golden brown

Gravy:

Ingredients
⁃ 1 lb sausage ( we prefer jimmy dean spicy – but regular works too if you don’t like any spice!!)
⁃ 1 stick salted butter
⁃ 1/2 cup flour
⁃ 3 cups milk

To make
⁃ cook sausage in skillet on medium until cooked through( I like to make sure to break it up into very small pieces- but that’s personal preference)
⁃ Add butter and melt
⁃ Add flour and stir, cook for 1 minute
⁃ Slowly add milk- stirring as you go
⁃ It will thicken over time and as it cools you can always add more milk to thin it out if needed

If you were needing some last minute ideas, I hope this was helpful!
