You know I work in my church's nursery on Sundays with kids 18 months to 3 years old. Or at least I think I mentioned that to you before. If not, I do.
Is there anything else that is more entertaining and exhausting? I don't think so.
When we first moved to Nashville back in 2000, Mr. Think and I did the same thing there and I needed something for the little ones to do for their daddies on Father's Day. So I made up this. I'm so glad I remembered it today so I can use it again this Sunday. Yay!
Anyone else who is need of a cheap, easy, sorta cute card for a bunch of pre-preschoolers – here you go!
Print out this sheet for the inside. I put two on a page so after you print it out just cut the paper in half.
Have the kids color the tie. (Or if they are like the ones in my Nursery, they will scribble wildly all over while eating a crayon turning their teeth green)
When they are done cut a line from the top of the paper to the top of the tie and fold it down like a dress shirt collar. (mine is poking up in the photo below but you get the idea)
Put it in the middle of a piece of construction paper and fold the color paper around it. Fold where the paper meets down like lapels. You could use scrapbook paper if you wanted to up its "cute factor" but I think the construction paper is more "retro manly" and almost feels like fabric if you buy the super cheap kind.
Glue on a button. (If you kids are small use smaller buttons to prevent worries about choking. This ones a little big....)
Happy Father's Day to your Mr. Pink! :: Think
