FREE Father's Day Card!

Have you found an idea for a Father's Day card this year? Not yet? I know the feeling! I went on Pinterest and found a couple ideas that I put together to make this FREEBIE! I'm really excited to share it with you because it easy and SUPER-cute!! (I don't mind saying so, myself!)

FREE Father's Day Card, Creating a Thoughtful Classroom



Father's Day is quickly approaching (June 21st) and whether or not you'll still be in school, it's a wonderful end-of-year activity to do with your students - they can take it home with them and save it to give to their dads on Father's day.

Here's how it works....

Start off by explaining the play on words, terrific as "tie" riffic. Ha, ha! So funny, right kids????
Anyway, print a letter template for each student and ask the to write about what makes their dad so "tie" riffic. Take some time to have a brainstorming session and list some ideas on chart paper to help students gather their thoughts. It's always helpful to have them chat with another student about what they plan to write before they actually do it.

***If you know that there are children in your class who may not have a father present in their life, you can encourage them to make this card for a grandpa, uncle or special man in their life instead. I have included these options in the freebie! You would want to add to your lesson that many kids have special people in their lives who are like fathers to them without being their actual dad, and that's ok!!!***

Print the shirt template on white or colored paper (for an extra pop) and cut on the dotted lines.

Fold the "collar" pieces in and down so that the corners meet at the "x", and then glue it. If you have early learners, I suggest doing this step yourself in advance so that your students can focus on decorating the tie and creating a thoughtful message to write inside the card.

Have students decorate the tie in any design or pattern they want. You could even encourage them to create a funny ties by drawing something that their dad really loves, like basketball, golf or whatever!
I like to use oil pastels because the colors are so vibrant. My sample here is pretty safe (and patriotic!), but your students' cards can be as colorful and creative as you want to make them!!

Remind students that they can color outside the lines for a smoother look because they will cut out the tie!

Next, they will glue the tie onto the shirt, and then glue that to a large piece of folded construction paper (I used 12"x18").

Finally, they can glue their letter inside the card. My class will be making these this week, so I'll update this post with some pictures of their creations!
