Father’s Day is coming up this Sunday, so I’ve been working on coming up with some simple crafts to do in our classes here. I love the idea of handprint/footprint crafts and cards, but I am very hesitant about getting paint involved–I feel like it just extends the time of the craft by so much between set up and clean up. Then you get kids getting paint on their clothes and on the carpet… If it were a smaller group of kids, I like paint, but not for a big group!
Anyway. So here’s a few crafts/cards that I have found online that I will probably use this Sunday.
This questionnaire is really cute, and good for any age–you can ask younger kids the questions and write for them, and older kids can fill it in themselves. Would be cute for kids to do each year and see how their answers change. 🙂
This cute DAD card–you can order the craft kit, but it would be fairly easy to make yourself! Although I wish they made 11×17 heavier paper…
This popsicle stick frame–you could use various objects to glue on top to represent things dads typically are into. Have the kids write a note to dad to put inside.
And finally, here’s some printable Father’s Day cards. Free and cute!
