It’s almost here — summer vacation! With the last few days of school quickly approaching, a Father’s Day craft might have slipped your mind. Though it’s only a few days away, there are several last minute craft ideas that you can do with your classroom:
A Duct Tape Wallet. A truly unique gift — a duct tape wallet is also eco-friendly and useful. With barely any supplies needed, your students will just have to do some folding. To take the creativity up a notch, use different duct tape colors and designs so that each wallet can be a work of art!
My Dad, My Hero. All this requires is some crayons, paper, and imagination. Have you students create their storybook with the subject being their dad. They can write about why their dad’s a superhero, or even create a story with dad as the main character. The options are limitless!
A Macaroni Frame. Macaroni art is a classic for sure! A quick trip to the grocery store or your pantry cabinet and you’ll be all set. Use construction paper as the base and allow your students to add glue and macaroni as they wish. Have their parents add a picture of them and you have an instant gift.
Mason Jar Banks. Students can create a personalized bank to show dad they care! Pre-slice a slit in the lid of each mason jar and let your children paint their own mason jar bank. You can provide them with stencils or allow them to just free hand it. Another handmade and useful gift that their fathers will enjoy.
