Father’s Day is coming up soon… here are three easy projects to whip up in 30 minutes, 15 minutes and 5 minutes or less!
Spoiler alert…to my favorite subscriber (aka hubby – stop reading now!)
The 30 min Photo Mobile: All you will need is some card stock or construction paper, a few pictures, glue, scissors, fishing line or string, hole punch or pin and some glitter and stickers for decor. Decide how many pictures too hang, these instructions are for three but you can always add more.
Cut out a card stock rectangle as the mobile top, punch one hole at the top and three holes on the opposite end for hanging the pictures. Add a message like Happy Father’s Day!” or “We love hanging with you DAD!”
Cut out three card stock shapes (circles, squares, triangles…whatever your child would like!) punch a hole at the top of each shape and then cut and paste a picture onto the card stock. Decorate with glitter and stickers.
Add the fishing line to each shape and then tie to the top part and to the top hole for hanging the mobile. As an extra touch you can string some beads to the fishing line.
15 minute Puzzle Frame: Gather one picture frame, some old puzzle pieces, glue, crayons, markers or paint and a picture. Color the puzzle pieces, glue them onto the picture frame. Add picture and a message like “Dad I love to pieces.”
5 minute Paper Weight: All you need is a rock, paint and permanent marker. Let the children paint the rock and when it is dry using the permanent marker add a message “Happy Father’s Day” or “DAD you Rock!”
Do you have any quick project ideas for celebrating the DAD in your family?
