Decorated Baseball Cap

What You’ll Need

  • Fabric crayons or markers
  • Plain baseball cap
  • Sheet of white paper

 

1. Using fabric crayons or markers, encourage your child to draw pictures on the baseball cap that remind her of her dad. Does he have a favorite sports team? Include the team name or colors on his cap.

2. Iron the cap, placing the white paper between the cap and the iron.

Extend the Fun

For younger kids: Have your child decorate a cap for himself in a matching or similar design as Dad’s. Encourage your youngster to show off his handiwork by wearing the matching caps when they’re out and about with Dad.

For older kids: Using the same fabric crayons or markers and same the ironing technique, suggest that your child make a custom-decorated T-shirt for Dad. On it, commemorate games you’ve enjoyed, foods you both like (pizza!), and places you’ve been together. If Dad has a nickname, include that, too (“Old Softie,” “BBQ King,” “Leader of the Pack”).
