My kids made at least 20 Father’s Day cards.
Not exaggerating! It’s summer. They’ve been a little bored.
And for the last two weeks, when they were bored, I told them to make something for Father’s Day.
They’d been there, done that with the coloring.
I did these for the kids at church, but the concept could be used for so many different holidays and kid’s crafts. Father’s Day is past, but you know I’m not always on the ball enough to post things BEFORE the holiday! I started with a basic, light blue layer of royal icing. (For a recipe and directions, see this post: The basics of Sugar Cookies and Royal Icing).
Then inside, they wrote a message and inserted their cookie work of art (that had been placed in a cellophane bag and adhered to the card).
My 5 year old chose to decorate his tie… with a tie!
This gave me a good chuckle! At first I thought I should try to get him to think more creatively and outside the box! Then I decided it made my day. It makes me laugh out loud every time I see it.
I’m pretty sure that Dads only want ties for Father’s Day anyway.
So we gave him one that he was sure to like!
