Crafts for Father’s Day
In my previous post I mentioned craft ideas to make for Father’s Day. Thought I would list a few more. There are just 14 days left until the big “D” day. What better way to give a gift then one that takes precious time and thought. Here are a few more ideas you can make.
- Family photos
- Thick paper or posterboard
- Markers (to decorate your collage)
Look for some funny family picutres and make a famiy collage for Dad to hang in his office. Have Mom help with cutting those pictures and past them on some posterboard. You can decorate them with string, glitter, or even candy!
- Sky blue and green construction paper
- Crayons or markers
- Some yarn
- A hole punch
- Styrofoam or paper cup
- A lump of play dough or other clay
- Glue stick
Find a twig that has many branches. Put a lump of clay/play dough in the bottom of a paper cup and stick the twig in the clay.
Cut out big leaves from the green construction paper. Each leaf will represent a person in the child’s family and should be big enough to write that person’s name on the leaf. Cut enough leaves for each of the siblings, parents, and grandparents. Write the name of each person on their leaf. You might want to include the relative’s relationship to the child, like “Grandma Jane Smith.” Punch a hole on the end of each leaf.
Tie the leaves to the tree. The child’s generation goes at the top of the tree, the parents at the second level, and the grandparents at the bottom.For an alternative project, use photos, and paste them on the leaves. Or use cut-outs of leaves, fruit (like apples), and/or flowers to represent the people.
My Father Poem
Write a simple poem and start each line with a letter from the words My Father. Be creative and express your feeling about your Dad.
I hope these ideas have helped you with way to express your love for your father. Treasure the time you have with him. My father is no longer with me and I miss him everyday but I have wonderful memories of him. Make some memories of your own for you and your children.
