These thoughtful gifts give Dad a memorable place to park his favorite beverage!

This activity is appropriate for:
preschool - 2nd grade / 3 - 7 years

You will need:

Before you begin:

  1. Take a digital photo of each student and develop the photos into 5" x 7" prints. (Smaller photos, like 4" x 6" prints, can be used but may not cover the entire CD surface.)
  2. Trace a CD onto the felt for each student. Cut out the felt circles.
  3. Trace a CD onto each photograph, carefully centering the student’s picture, and cut around the outline.


  1. Give each student a recycled CD, a felt circle and glue.
  2. Have students glue the felt onto one side of the CD, creating a soft bottom surface to prevent furniture scratches. (Younger students may need assistance with steps 2 and 3.)
  3. Instruct students to glue their photos to the other side of the CD.
  4. Help students carefully place a sheet of clear adhesive paper over the top of the photograph and trim off the excess around the CD edges.
  5. Encourage students to create a decorative border for their coasters by gluing small washers, bolts and/or nuts around the rim. (This will prevent drinks from sliding off the coasters.)
  6. Invite students to present their keepsake coaster to an important male figure in their lives (e.g., dad, uncle, grandfather, etc.) for Father’s Day!
