What dad wouldn’t love a paperweight created by his kids? This is the perfect craft for any businessman to have in his office as a daily reminder of how his kids feel about him. You could even make two of these crafts. You could make one rock say Dad and the other one say Rocks. You’d have a set of paperweights instead of just one.
