If you want to go beyond a store-bought gift for this Father’s Day and instead create a personalized DIY gift together with your kids here is one that dad will love. I came across several “Dad Rocks” ideas on Pinterest (where else?). Most of them use big rocks that are colored and have the words “My Dad Rocks” or something similar written on them (these make great paper weights). Other ideas need pebbles to spell the words on homemade salt dough (these can be used as wall or garden decorations). I wanted to follow a different direction and instead make use of the handful of river stones I brought home from our vacation to the Smoky Mountains.
