Father's Day Craft

Pinterest is such a great source of inspiration for me, especially when it comes to trying to find craft ideas for children.  This coming weekend it is Father's Day and so I had to find something which was simple and age appropriate for our Playgroup children to make for their dads.

With a little help from an idea on Pinterest and a shopping trip where I picked up these supplies

and teamed them up with the Dot Markers which I shared about with you in a recent blog post here, we made this

The card strip across the bottom is just to show you what is inside. 
When you open it out it looks like this

It is a little difficult to photograph.  The centre card which joins the hands is folded back and forth to hide it in the middle.  When opened out it is meant to represent a child spreading their arms wide and saying "daddy I love you this much".  A cute idea and all the mums loved it - the kids enjoyed making them too.

We also sent home a little parcel of chocolates for the children to give their dads too.

If you have any other ideas for children's Father's Day crafts which could be used for Playgroups - please let me know!
