Pinspiration - Personalized Father's Day gifts

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- It's a time to honor Dad, so we're getting the kids involved to make a personal gift.

Personal Grill Mitt

What you need:
- Oven mitt or hand towel
- Fabric Paint
- Sponge brush

If you're like Heather, you have a little one running around and not looking to sit still for a craft. Heather traced her son's hand while he was napping to make his dad's gift.

If you have an older child, then left them press their hand in the paint and then on to your mitt. Heather cut out the trace of her son's hand, and then sponged paint within the shape.

Heather also brought in an idea she made last year for Father's Day. She traced her son's footprint on sheet of paper with a poem printed on it. Heather chose, "Walk with me, Daddy" by Helen Bush. It's a sweet poem, perfect with the small footprint.

To see these projects click on the "Pinspiration" board on Heather's Pinterest page,, or Erin Barnett's Pinterest page at

"Walk with me, daddy"
Helen Bush

Walk alongside me, daddy
and hold my little hand.
I have so many things to learn
that I don't yet understand.

Teach me things to keep me safe
from dangers every day.
Show me how to do my best
at home, at school, at play.

Every child needs a gentle hand
to guide them as they grow.
So walk alongside me, daddy -
We have a long way to go.
