Father’s Day Craft

2 Dec

Father’s Day was getting closer and Ria and I wanted to do something special for Daddy. Since Ria was learning colors at that time, we decided to make something with lots of colors.

And this is what we made for Daddy on Father's Day

Things required for Father's Day craft are: a carton, A4 size paper, lots of paints, a golf ball and some pompom balls.

Get your toddler/preschooler to choose the colors they want for this craft. Place the A4 sheet and the golf ball inside the carton. Take one color at a time and drop some of it on the paper. Now ask your sweet ones to rock the carton holding the sides. Our delicate darlings might need our help with this one.

This is how the paper should look after the shaking and rocking. Repeat this for all the colors your child wants to put.

Time to add the emotional touch! Write I Love(heart shape) Papa (or Daddy) on the paper once the paint is dry.

Add glue on the outline of the heart (I used glitter glue just because Ria likes it, you can go for normal glue as well). Get Daddy's champ or princess to start sticking pompom balls on the heart.

Once the pompom balls are dry. Trim the A4 sheet to make it look neat and paste it on a textured thick paper to give it a frame. Daddy's present is ready!

Early Learning goes a long way in your child’s education and upbringing. Amongst the very important things to learn for a toddler or preschooler are hand-eye coordination, 5 senses, practice fine and gross motor skills, balance, and muscle development. A lot of this can be practiced at home with crafts and activities under adult’s supervision. Playing with colors, pots and pans, brushes, sponges, glue; reading books, pretend play, all seem like child’s play to us but are actually helping your toddlers/preschoolers develop their minds and bodies.

Please make sure all the activities mentioned in this blog are done under adult supervision. If your children are still putting things in their mouths, then avoid activities with small particles that can cause chocking hazards. Also, all steps in the articles that involves a pencil, knife, pair of scissors or any sharp objects should be performed by an adult.
