A Pat On the Back For Dad

Materials

Men’s T-Shirts

Fabric Paint

Have the children make hand prints on the back of the t-shirts, then write “This Dad Needs A Pat On The Back”.


“Souper Soup for a Souper Dad”

Each child brings a can of their Dad’s (or special man in their lives) soup. Take a piece of construction paper the size of the can label. Let the children decorate the label..using markers, crayons, stickers. Make a tag that says “Souper Soup for a Souper Dad” (or Grandpa, Uncle,etc.), put a stick on bow on top of the can.


Bookmark’s for Dad

Cut a bookmark whatever size you would like or copy a size that is sold..use a paper cutter…watercolor one size with Q-tips the other side put date and message to dad. when dried laminate, punch a hole in the top and tie a ribbon into the hole. You can use regular paint with Q-tips too. I also send a plant home with the book mark that the children have planted before fathers day….Dad’s love it…I work with 3’s and it has been a big success. I also let the children sign their names any way they know how…which is usually drawing it.


Father’s Day Cards

Materials

Tempra paints in assorted colors
Construction paper (for the cover of the card)
Copier paper (for inside the card)
Stickers, crayons, markers, etc.
Talk with the children about things they can do around the house to help their dads. Then, help them make a “helping hands” Father’s Day card.

Give each child 4 pieces of white copier paper and have them make hand prints on each sheet. When they are dry, make a cover out of construction paper and staple the children’s papers inside. Let the children decorate their covers. The dad’s can then tear out the pages of the cards and present them to the children when they need a “helping hand”.

Small Coffee cans (keep the lids)
Clear Contact Paper
Stickers, paints, markers, crayons, etc.
2 boxes of Fish shaped crackers

Activity
First, make decorated snack food containers for Father’s Day. Cut the construction paper to fit the coffee cans. Let the children decorate the construction paper with stickers, paints, markers, crayons, etc. Glue the children’s decorated papers onto the coffee cans and then cover with clear contact paper.

Next, make a Father’s Day snack to put into the cans. Let the children help mix the fish crackers, pretzels, raisins, cheerios, and popcorn together. Fill the cans with the snack.
