June is the time to celebrate fathers and other special men in our lives. Check below for some activities and things that I have done with my students and some special cards that I have created for Father's Day.
This special bug kit was created for Dads to have handy when barbecuing. To find out how to create one of your own, check out this blog.
Wordles are a great way to make something cool for Dad. Just think of all the special words that describe Dad and then put them together to make word art. Here are some examples made by a couple of my students. I put them in glass frames from the dollar store. To find out more, click the image below.
Games are fun to play together. Here is a travel tic tac toe board that we made. To get the directions for your own diy board, click the image below.
Whatever the gift, it was always fun to make the wrapping paper to go with it. All you need is some newsprint and markers. This made every gift special.
Here are some Father's Day cards that I just created that can be printed as is in color or printed in black and white so that the children can color them and make them more personal. Click the image to see more.

Happy Father's Day to all the special men in your life.
Games are a great way to interact with family members. Here is a simple DIY for making a tic tac toe game board that can be used for travel or at home.
To make this board, you will need the following materials:
1 piece of card stock cut out so it is a 8.5 inch square
10 puffy balls (2 colors - 5 of each color)
10 foam shapes
ribbon or brickbrack for the lines and border (8 pieces 8.5 inches long)
Step 1: Glue the ribbon around the edges of the card stock
Step 2: Glue the lines for the spaces
Step 3: Glue the foam shapes on the puffy balls. These will help keep them from rolling away.
Now your game is ready to use. Find a partner and start playing.
When you finish, you can easily store your game in a ziplock bag.
This is a simple game to make, but can provide hours of fun. My students made this one year for their fathers for Father's Day. They just added a card and made some gift wrapping paper and it was ready to go. For more Father's Day ideas and activities, click here.
