He's always using a plate to put the chicken, salmon, or whatever he's cooking on. Usually it's chicken though, since that's his thing in the BBQ competition.
I saw this fun and easy project on Pinterest I'd been wanting to try. Can I say again how easy it was? Easy!
This is the project that inspired my craft:
Well I had to make it less girly, so I didn't do cursive. And I didn't write a story/poem/song. But that would be fun! Instead, I used grilling/cooking terms specific for my dad.
Frame from The 3 AM Teacher
Simple materials right? I already had a sharpie. And an oven...imagine that lol :) So I just bought a cheapo $1 plate.
Then I thought about the words I wanted to write and where. I decided to just go around the border.
Then I also had a blue sharpie and used it to make those blue accent dots. Hmm maybe this is a good excuse to go buy a rainbow sharpie pack. Anyway, pop in the oven at 150 degrees for 30 minutes. I've also seen info for 30 minutes at 350.
My final project!
My words include chicken, chef, smoke, flame, fish, cook..
Simple project, fun, and cheap! I could see doing one for birthdays, Christmas, any potluck or gathering really. Christmas I could put Christmas song titles, gatherings I could put 'friends', 'food', 'talk'... oh the possibilities are endless. Good thing the plates are only $1 :)
