Father’s Day Craft: #1 Dad Ribbon

markersBefore I get into the post for today, I would like to apologize for the lack of posts over the last few days.  I pinched a muscle in my back and couldn’t sit for any period of time…or stand or anything for that matter.  I am now feeling much better, probably because of the doctor’s prescription and I’m ready to go.

Anyway, now that I apologized, let’s get going on a great father’s day craft that is excellent for younger children to create.

What you need:

  • A magnetic strip (you can buy these at most craft stores and it usually comes in a roll)
  • Juice can lid
  • Paper
  • White glue
  • Markers

What you need to do:

  1. Cut out a circle from the construction paper that is the same size as the juice can lid.  You can use the juice can lid as a stencil.
  2. Have your child decorate it with markers.
  3. Cut out a piece of construction paper that looks like a ribbon.
  4. Have your child decorate the ribbon.
  5. Using white glue, paste the circle into the front of the lid and the ribbon onto the back of the lid so it hangs down like a ribbon.
  6. Glue the magnetic strip to the back and dad can hang it on the fridge or on a filing cabinet in his office.
  7. Lastly, write in #1 Dad or have your child write it.
  8. Wrap and give to dad.

Since this is such an easy project, I would recommend it for any child age 6 months and up to 3 years.  Of course, the younger your child, the more work you will have to put into it, but it will still be a wonderful gift on Father’s Day.
