DON'T FORGET THIS SUNDAY JUNE 20TH
IT IS FATHERS DAY AND TIME FOR YOU TO MAKE
DAD A GREAT CARD AND MAYBE A GIFT.


DAD

What you'll need:

  • 8"x10" piece of light cardboard
  • (cereal box, etc)
  • 1 sheet green construction paper
  • 9 shiny pennies
  • Green fine point marker
  • Pencil with eraser
  • Blue fine tip marker
  • Scissors
  • White craft glue
  • Glue stick

How to make it:

  1. Fold the green construction paper and cardboard in half like a greeting card. Place the cardboard on the inside of the green construction paper, lining up the fold lines. Use a glue stick to attach the cardboard to the construction paper. (See photo.)
  2. Trim off the excess paper if needed. (See photo.)
  3. Use pencil to lightly write "DAD" across the front of the card, leaving about 1.5" space underneath. (See photo.)
  4. Use green fine point marker to draw dollar signs on "DAD" letters. Erase any pencil marks that might show through. (See photo.)
  5. Use white craft glue to attach a penny to each corner of the D's, where the curve meets straight lines, and at the center of the curve. Glue a penny to the top of the letter A, and two at the bottom. (See photo.)
  6. Write, "You're worth every penny!" underneath "DAD" with blue fine point marker.

Tips:

  1. The pennies add quite a bit of weight to this card, so even card stock or poster board is not sturdy enough, be sure to use the cardboard or your card will not stand freely.
  2. For a lightweight card, make photocopies of the pennies and cut them out and glue them on, instead of the real thing.

DOES YOUR DAD LIKE FISHING

Dad's card

            Does your Dad love fishing ?

           If so, he'll love this homemade

                    Father's Day card

                 featuring a pair of fish --

            and a healthy dose of creativity!




What you'll need:

  • 1 sheet of blue construction paper
  • Patterned paper (stripes, polka dots, etc)
  • Scraps of yellow and green construction paper
  • Toothpick
  • 3" string
  • 2 medium wiggle eyes
  • Scrap of tan felt or paper
  • Scrap of white paper
  • Hole punch
  • Pen or pencil
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • White craft glue

How to make it:

  1. Fold the blue construction paper in half like a greeting card, set aside. (See photo.)
  2. Draw a letter D on a piece of card and with mum's help make a template.
  3. Pencil draw the "D" onto the paper being used for the two fish and cut out.
  4. Cut out one tail triangle and two smaller fin triangles (See photo.) from the yellow construction paper. Repeat same with the green construction paper.
  5. Use a glue stick to attach the tail and fins to the fish by gluing to the back of the D shaped patterned paper. (See photo.)
  6. Cut the pointed ends off of the toothpick. Tie the string to one end of the toothpick and trim one end. This is your fishing pole letter "A". (See photo.)
  7. First place your fish and your fishing pole (D A D) onto the front of the card. Once you have them where you want them, use the glue stick to attach the "D's" and the white craft glue to attach the "A". (See photo.)
  8. Glue on wiggle eyes and use a sharp pencil to draw a hook at the end of the fishing line. Let dry completely.

Tips:

  1. While patterned paper is cute, you can also have children make their own by coloring white paper with markers or crayons and cutting out your D's.
  2. Use card stock instead of construction paper for a sturdier card.
  3. Don't throw away any scraps, cut or tear them into small squares and keep in a zipper gallon bag for future projects. Great for mosaics
