Can you believe that it’s almost Memorial Day? The spring flew by! It’s time to start thinking about Father’s Day. We just made 3 fun & easy crafts for our Dad & i’m excited to share them.
The girls had a lot of fun with these. Since we just had Mother’s Day, I explained to Maggie that next month we have a day all about Daddy! She said she “can’t wait to make him breakfast” since that was her favorite part of Mother’s Day.
1. Make Dad A Tie
My husband & I always talk about how there will come a time when the girls pick out a tie for him for his birthday, Christmas, Father’s Day etc & no matter how wild & crazy it is, he’ll have to wear it. I thought this year it would be funny to have the girls make him ties.
Yarn or ribbon
Stickers, glitter, pom poms or anything else fun to decorate with
Cut out a tie shape from the construction paper. I am terrible at cutting so I “google imaged” tie outline & printed it for something to trace. Then punch 2 holes at the top of the tie. Use the glue & decorations to decorate your tie. Then lace ribbon/yarn through the tie & tie it.
2. #1 Dad Trophy
This one is the hardest, most time consuming of the 3 crafts.
Gold or Silver Paint
Small piece of paper to write “#1 Dad”
First paint the cup & let it dry. Paint the pasta & let it dry. Bend pipe cleaners to look like handles & glue to cup. Glue the pasta around the cup. Glue on little sign that says “#1 Dad”. Give Dad his trophy!
3. Why I Love Dad
Construction paper in various colors
Heart hole punch or scissors
Pen or marker
Use the heart hole punch or scissors to make a bunch of hearts in different colors. Then ask your little one to list things they love about their Dad. Write something different on each heart. Let your little one glue the hearts all over a piece of construction paper. This could be a great card too!
