Paper Tie

Supplies Needed:

Colored paper
Crayons or markers

On a large piece of paper draw the shape of a tie. Next have your child decorate the tie with different shapes cut from the colored paper and with the crayons or markers. Once the work of art is dry, cut out the tie shape. With a sharp pencil, (or a hole punch if you have one) put two small holes on either side of the top of the tie(the knot of the tie). Next thread the yarn through both holes ensuring it loops behind the tie and not in front of it.
P.S. Make sure Daddy wears it all day that day.

Me and You Book (from familyfun.com)

Supplies Needed:

Cereal box
8 ½ x 11 inch white paper

Now, brainstorm topics for both child and Father. If it says on the left page “ My Favorite Animals”, then print on the facing page, “Your Favorite Animals”. Your child can draw or write in his answers, leaving the other side blank for Dad to fill in. Other topics: favorite colors, special places, five things you love about the other person. The child can fill out the remainder with Dad.

Daddy, I love you

To teach you to play,
So smile ‘cause I love you
