Directions: A small bookmark-shaped strip of posterboard with the child's photo glued on one end and the words "I'll save your place, Dad" written on it. Then the children decorate it. I don't have a laminating machine, so I just cover it (both sides) with clear contact paper.

A "Hug"

Need: A close-up head-and-shoulders shot of the child, cut out and glued to a manila file folder (or posterboard), leaving a 2.5" base below the photo; tracings of both of the child's hands cut out of the same file folder material; a strip of construction
paper approximately 18" x 2.5" with the words "I love you this much!" written on it.

Directions: Glue a hand on each end and the photo in the center (extra material on the backside). Fold the ends in so that it looks like a child with his arms folded in front of him. When you open it out, the outstretched arms will let it stand on a desk or shelf. I hope I explained it well enough. It really is adorable. I've used it for both mom and dad.

Directions: Footprint picture made by tracing the foot or by letting the children step in paint and making prints. Print the following poem:

"Walk a little slower, Daddy",
Said a little child so small.
"I'm following in your footsteps,
And I don't want to fall.

Sometimes your steps are very fast,
Sometimes they're hard to see;
So walk a little slower, Daddy,
For you are leading me.

Someday when I'm all grown up,
You're what I want to be;
Then I will have a little child
Who'll want to follow me.

And I would want to lead just right,
And know that I was true;
So, walk a little slower, Daddy,
For I must follow you."

Wind Chimes for Dad

Need: Old Screws, nuts, bolts, wood, and fishing line

Directions: We make mobile (wind chimes) out of old screws , nuts , and bolts. I got old scraps of wood and used fishing line to connect the nuts and bolts to the old piece of wood.

Nail Aprons

Need: Nail Aprons, fabric paint, permanent markers

Directions: I went out today & asked for some nail aprons for the children to decorate 4 Father's Day. The big companies like Builders Square would not give me some. So I went to the small independent company & it worked! I now have 30 nail aprons for my kids to decorate & give to dad. I bought a bunch of permanent sharpie markers & some fabric paint. I'll let my kids put on a few handprints & use all those different colored markers.


Need: 9 inch paper plate, crayons, markers, paint, glitter, buttons, sequins, or
anything else you would like to add.

Directions: Use a 9 inch paper plate. Draw a circle in the middle of the plate-the circle should include the "flat part" of the plate that is in the middle, but not the "ribbed part" of the outside of the plate. Make one cut through the plate in the ribbed area to get to the circle and then cut the circle out. You should now have a circle and a ring (the
ring is the ribbed part). Draw the shape of a tie (the large diamond look) in the middle of the circle and cut out. Make sure the tie starts at one side of the circle and ends at the other side so your tie will be as long as possible. This cut out shape should look like the part of a tie you see laying on the front of a man's shirt when he is wearing the tie. Staple the tie shape to the ring shape. Place the staple on the opposite side of the cut you made through the ring shape. You should be able to slip the ring around your neck like a necklace and the tie shape should be resting on your chest just like a real tie. The ring around your neck is what holds the tie on. You may decorate your tie with crayons, markers, paint, glitter, buttons, sequins, or anything else you would like to add. You can also stamp or sponge paint your tie.

Father's Day Yummy Cup
Need: Plastic cup, markers, candy, small note pad, and tissue paper

Directions: Take a regular plastic cup (tumbler), bright colors are cute! Let the kids decorate outside w/ marker. Help them write the occasion : Happy Fathers Day! Love you ! etc... We used med. blue cups w/ light blue tissue paper stuffed inside cup. Then let the kids fill w/ goodies for their Dad! We used a baggie of gummie bears,
some gum, a small note-pad ( on the first page we made a coupon for Dad to take the whole day OFF!).

Father's Day pop-up Card
Need: Pencil, Scissors, Glue, A ruler, 2 sheets of colored paper (approximately 8.5" x 11"), Crayons, Markers, Glitter
Directions: Hold one piece of paper with the short side at the bottom. Fold in half, bringing the top down. Firmly crease the fold with your fingernail. Using your ruler and pencil, make a dot at the center of the creased fold. Measure one inch to the right of this center dot, and using the ruler draw a straight 2" line (at right angle to crease). Repeat the measure and cut on the left side. At this point you should have two 2" slits at the top of your card. Open the card, positioning the center, cut out, section forward. It should form a cube when opened. Crease the front and bottom section of the cube, and close the card, folding the cube flat (facing toward you so that it pops up when you open the card). Take the second piece of paper and glue it to the other side of the card. Your Father's Day card will be rectangular (approximately 5.5" X 8.5") and will open from the bottom. For the pop-up you can draw and then cut out a heart or other design of your choice (make it taller than the box - around 3" high and about 2" wide). Get creative. You might want to cut out a picture to place on the pop-up cube or glue on a family portrait. Put glue on the cube
section only and fold the card closed, being certain the pop-up lies flat. Your design will pop up, covering much of the cube when the card is opened. Now the fun really begins. You might want to write Happy Father's Day on the front of your card, with a message to Dad inside. Color and decorate the card, inside and out using crayons, markers, and glitter. Use your imagination!

Father's day Ties
Need: Construction paper, paint contact paper, and elastic

Directions: Cut out ties about 8 - 10 inches long out of construction paper. Have the children decorate them with paints. On the back put their names and date and laminate it. Put a piece of elastic through two holes punched into the top on each side.

Pat on the back for Dad
Need: Men's T-shirts, Fabric Paint.
Directions: Have the children make hand-prints on the back of the T-shirts, then write, "This Dad Needs A Pat On The Back."

Souper Dad
Need: Can of soup, construction paper, markers, crayons, stickers, and a bow

Directions: Each child brings a can of their dad's favorite soup. Take a piece of construction paper the size of the can label. Let the children decorate the label using markers, crayons, stickers, etc. Make a tag that says, "Souper Soup For A Souper Dad." Put a stick bow on top of the can.

Dads Bookmark
Need: Paper, water color paint, Q-tips, contact paper, and ribbon

Directions: Cut a bookmark whatever size you would like. Have the children watercolor one side with Q-tips and on the other side put date and message to dad. When dry, laminate it and tie a ribbon through a hole punched out on top.

Father's Day Cards
Need: Assorted colors of paint, Construction paper, Copier paper, Stickers, crayons, markers, etc.
Directions: Talk to 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 dads can then tear out the pages of the card and present them to the children when they need a "helping hand."

Snack for Dad
Need: Construction paper, Small coffee cans, Clear contact paper, Stickers, paints, markers, crayons, etc., 2 boxes of fish shaped crackers, 1 large bag of pretzels, 1 large bag of raisins, 2 boxes cheerios, Popcorn
Directions: 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, paint, 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 this snack.

Puzzle Pictures Need: 8 x 10 pieces of posterboard, Various old puzzles with missing pieces, 5 x 7 pieces of construction paper, Paint, Glue,
Directions: Using the paint, have the children make a hand print on the 5 x 7 piece of paper. Glue the hand- prints onto the posterboard. Let the children glue the puzzle
pieces on the poster board, around the hand print to create a frame.

Pops pencil Holder
Need: Popsicle sticks, Glue, Paint (two or more different colors), Tomato sauce can (remove one end of the can and the paper).
Directions: Paint Popsicle sticks whatever colors you have chosen. When these have dried, glue them to the tomato sauce can. These make neat pencil holders for dad.

Hand Print Art
Need: Water color paper, Acrylic paint, frame. glass, mat board, gold paint marker

Directions: The children wanted to give Dad a lasting impression of their hands so we went & bought good watercolor paper. Then each child picked out acrylic paint in the color of their choice. Then we purchased a frame, glass & mat. I painted each child hand with the paint using a foam brush then positioned their hand over the
paper & pressed..........then I took a gold paint marker & made a bow on the index finger. Then in the upper corner in calligraphy I wrote......."Dad we have you
wrapped around our fingers" He truly loved the print & it now hangs in our foyer for a permanent reminder of their little hands.

Someone Like A Father
Directions: Because some children do not live with (some do not even know) one parent or the other (or either), remind children that they can make gifts for "Someone Who Is Like a Father To Me" or "My Special Person" ....

Key Chains
Need: Meat Tray, permanent markers, sharp instrument (Adult Only), key ring, use of an oven

Directions: Cut off curved sides from meat trays. Have children decorate using permanent markers (I know it's hard for the young ones to keep permanent markers off everything, so you may need to keep an eye on them.) With a black permanent marker write your message. I had the children write it with a pencil first and then trace with marker. We used the message Happy Fathers Day. With a sharp instrument make a hole in the meat tray close to the edge but not too close. Write the kids name and the date and any other special message also with permanent marker. Now the really neat stuff. Place the meat trays on a cookie sheet lined with foil and place in a low oven for 2-5 minutes.( Keep an eye on them as they tend to roll up and stick together) The meat trays heat up, shrink and get hard. I added a key ring in the hole and made key chains for Father's Day. The mother's in my class were very upset and jealous that the fathers were getting this.

Stress Ball
Need: Latex examination glove or a balloon (a Balloon looks better.), sand, permanent markers

Directions: Fill a latex examination glove or a balloon with clean sand. I used it out of our school sandbox so I sifted it first. I will let the children do all of this. Fill the glove until it is very full. Then tie it in a knot. I will let the children decorate it with permanent markers all colors. On the palm area write: To the best Dad, Hands Down! On the fingers add smile faces. : ) add hair etc...Write: I Love You down the fingers. Write: Happy Father's Day on the back palm area. Add fingernails color them red. Add rings ....get creative. Now this blob hand is a great item to set on a desk. It's very unique. It can be posed. Add your rings to the fingers. It can hold small cards. Great stress reliever. You can lay it flat & press down on the palm area to make an indentation. It can hold small coins. I don't think many dad's have these. When I was experimenting with the gloves all my co-workers wanted one. Keep in mind that you want the glove to be full so that the fingers stand upright. You also need to squeeze out any air that is inside the glove so you don't have a bubble. It is very easy to do.

Wrapping Paper
Need: newsprint, shape sponges, and paint

Directions: Let the children wrap their gifts in wrapping paper they have made from newsprint stamped with fish shaped sponge painting (or car/truck sponge shapes).

Paper Weight
Need: rocks, paint, felt and wiggly eyes

Put a bead of craft glue around the edge of the pie tin and cover the pie with the felt crust. Place a sheet of wax paper on top of the crust and place a book on top until the glue dries. Don't use a really heavy book, or you may end up with "applesauce".
When your pie is dry, decorate the top by drawing lines with glue and sprinkle with glitter. Your pie is done! Doesn't it smell yummy? Put it anywhere you'd enjoy the delicious aroma of fresh apple pie!

This pretty bag of potpourri
Was made for you by little me.
In it there are leaves and flowers
That will smell sweet for many hours.
I helped cut the ribbon and lace
And tied it in a special place.
So keep it somewhere it can stay
To remind you of this Mother's Day!
I had the children write their names on the little card
(the ones that couldn't I helped a little.)

Decorative Bathroom Soaps

Need: Ivory Snow Powder, water, cookie cutters or molds, food coloring

Directions: Combine Ivory Snow powder (the laundry detergent) and water to make a dough. Be sure to add the water as you mix until you have a playdough like dough.
Give each child a small helping of soap dough and allow them to make what they wish. You can also use cookie cutters or molds. We made soaps in different
shapes for Mother's Day. You can add food coloring to the water before mixing to create wonderfully colored soaps. Just be sure to explain that this is soap and that the kids should be careful not to touch their eyes!!


Need: Kitchen supplies and plain, clear soap are all you need to make luminous bars of soap. They can be any color you like. Colors can also be layered in one bar.. natural additions make unusual, beautiful soaps. Try poppy seeds a spiral of citrus peel oatmeal, fragrant dried herbs, or a fern sprig. For molds use the bottom of a milk carton to make square soaps, or try a smooth sided tomato paste can for cylindrical shapes. Plastic chocolate molds also work..
1. Chop bars of unscented glycerin soap (Pure Pleasure works well) to yield 2 cups of one half inch chunks. Melt soap in a double boiler or microwave on high for one
minute until melted completely. Skim froth from top. Mix in tiny amounts of liquid food coloring. Blend colors as desired. For scented soap add essential oils- natural scented oils the essence of the plant from which they are derived. Can be found in specialty bath and beauty shops.
2. Brush chosen mold with more essential oil or with vegetable oil. Pour melted soap into mold and let stand until hardened, about 2 hours. To make layers, pour one colored soap into a mold and let it harden for about 20 minutes. Skim off any bubbles and pour another layer into the mold and let stand until hardened. The natural additions can be mixed into the melted soap or placed on top of one layer before adding another.
3. Remove the soap from the mold by ripping away the milk carton, opening the can at the bottom and pushing out the soap or inverting the plastic mold and tapping the bottom. Hardened soaps can be cut into smaller bars.

Animal Cracker Pins

Need: Glue gun (Adult Only), safety pin, paint, and polyurethane

Directions: Using a glue gun, attach safety pin back to each cracker. Pins can be purchased in quantities of 10 or 15 at your nearest craft store. After attaching the pin back, have children paint crackers using tempera or poster paint and polyurethane for a shiny coat. Simple and adorable.


Need: Egg carton, paint, pipe cleaner, paper, ribbon, green tissue paper

Directions: Another pretty bouquet to give for Mother's Day is one made of egg carton roses. Cut up cardboard egg cartons and trim around each cup to form the "rose". I usually have each child make six. They then paint the cups red inside and out. When dry poke a small hole in the bottom through which a green pipe cleaner is inserted. Curl the top of the pipe cleaner to keep the rose from falling off. The children can cut a construction paper leaf for each stem and glue to pipe cleaner. You now have a beautiful bouquet of long stemmed roses! They can be tied with a ribbon and wrapped in green tissue paper like they are when you buy real roses at a florist, or put into a child-made vase!

Scrubber Flower

Need: Net type scrubber, brad, paper

Directions: You use kitchen scrubbers (I bought mine at the supermarket at their dollar days and got them 4 for $1.50) Use a brad to attach the scrubber to paper and
make it the flower. The kids add the stem and leaves and other things. Add the following poem that I changed up a bit.
To make your Mother's day fantastic
I made you this flower of plastic.
I give it to you with this special wish...
May it help you scrub each pot and dish.
I want to thank you for all you do.
Happy Mother's Day, I love you!
(remove brad and enjoy your kitchen scrubber)

Mother's day Gift

Mother's Day Recipe Holder

Need: Small plastic plant pots, silk flowers, plastic forks, plaster of paris, stickers

Directions: Have the children decorate the pots using various stickers. Mix up a batch of plaster and fill each pot 3/4 full. Let stand for a minute or two or until the silk flowers will stand up in the plaster, insert a fork, handle first. Let harden, place a favorite recipe card in the fork. It makes a great recipe holder for your counter !

Mothers day vase and flowers

Need: Nestea Bottle, tissue paper, glue, pipe cleaner
Directions: Take a Nestea bottle and remove the label have the children take small scraps of tissue paper and apply to the outside of the bottle with watered down glue and a paint brush. Next, take tissue paper two colors layered and squeeze in the middle so it looks like a butterfly and wrap a pipe cleaner there to hold insert the pipe cleaner in the vase. You will need about 4 flowers to have a full arrangement. Even the 2 year old's find paining the jar easy.

I Love You Flower

Need: Paper, chenille stem or straw, plaster or glue, paper cup

Directions: Trace their hand and then glue the fingers down to make the sign for Love (ring and middle fingers down.). Add a chenille stem or a straw as the flower stem. Put some plaster or glue in the bottom of a paper cup and put the stem down into the cup - makes a really cute present.

I Love you this much
Need: paper, yarn, envelope

Directions: Trace child's hands and attach with a long piece of yarn (measure child's
arms)....put into an envelope with a note that says, "MOM, ( or Grandma etc) I LOVE YOU THIS MUCH...

Book of Kisses
Need: paper, markers, lipstick

Directions: The children can make a "Book Of Kisses" to give to their mothers on Mother's Day. Make booklets by cutting paper into 4 inch squares and stapling ten sheets together in one booklet for each child. Write "Book of Kisses" on the top
page and invite the children to decorate the page that is the cover of the booklet. In small groups, color the children's lips with lipstick and have them kiss each page of the book. Send it home with a note explaining that the mothers can redeem each page for a real kiss.

Mother's Day Card
Need: Construction paper, tempera paint, pie pan, scissors, and a pencil.
Directions: Fold the construction paper in half to form a card. Pour enough tempera paint in the pie pan to cover the bottom. Have the child lay the palm of the hand in the paint. Take the hand out of the paint and press the hand on the front of the card, with the small finger along the folded edge. Let dry. Leaving the card folded, cut out the handprint so the card is now in the shape of the handprint. Open the card and write the message.

Paper Plate Grandmas and Grandpas
Need: Markers, glue, fabric strips, yarn, other collage materials, paper, plates, cotton
Directions: Give children markers, glue, fabric strips, yarn, and any other assortment
of odds and ends to make this craft. Use markers to draw face in center of plate. Add scraps to make hair, glasses, bowties etc. Cotton balls make great grandpa hair. And be sure you have a variety of colors of yarn available to use for hair. Not all grandparents are gray any more!:) Write "my grandma" (or grandpa) around the edge of the plate, add a yarn hanger, or a magnet. The children and grandparents love these loving portraits! Choose different patterned scraps, already cut into various shapes. It is amazing how many details the children use and I have yet to see anyone add any wrinkles at all!

You can make a photo album for grandparents day. Include the following poem.
