A Simple Gift Idea for Mr. Practical

My dad, Mr. Practical, is hard to buy for. He always acts like presents are a waste of money, and he seems to appreciate useful gifts more than frivolous ones, so as a going away present/early Father's Day gift, Colter and I personalized what my mom said he needed, a new water jug, and made it more fun! Dad works out in the hot sun all summer, so he goes through a lot of water each day. To ensure that no goofy hired hand (a.k.a. my cousin, Brennan) steals my daddy's water, we used some acrylic paint and sealer to decorate a new Colman water jug with polka dots and Colter's hand prints. The other side of the jug says, "Poppy's H2O", and I had all my siblings sign the bottom. Hopefully, Dad won't be too embarrassed to actually drink out of it.

I think this is a cute Father's Day gift idea! All you need is a new water jug, paint, some spray sealer so the paint hopefully doesn't wash off, Sharpies, and some cute kid hands.
