I need to make a xmas present for my brother as we aren't buying any for him this year (we all paid for his airfare for a family holiday instead), but I would like to give him something to open.

For his birthday the kids painted a t shirt for him to sleep in, so can't do something like that again.

He is an outdoors, fishing, 4wd etc kind of guy, but I'm really struggling to think of something a 3 & 1 year old could make for him... any suggestions?

Jax I looked at that recipe the other day, yummo!

Sorry OP, I'm out of ideas.

The canvas transfer may not be quite what you're looking for, but there's a lot of other ideas here:

(not my site, BTW, just came across it one day and am in the middle of trying it right now!)

Also some more options Fathers day kids craft ideas

And here:

You could have them make an outdoors-themed photo frame or key hook?

A handmade card, and something to munch on. Handmade flys are only good if he fly fishes.
