I moustache you... did you realise that it is Fathers Day (here in Australia) this weekend? Where is this year going? It has totally caught me on the hop this year and I have been left with only 1 week (which equals 2 Kindy days!!) to work my magic and create a pva masterpiece!
The dads in our class will each be receiving a trophy, nuts and bolts snack mix and an adorable card. These items are super cute and also EASY to make which is vital when you only have 2 days to do it in (and the Kindy kids work at a snails pace!) They will also be invited in for some afternoon activities and a little concert.
| I moustache you... Fathers Day card|
You can download your moustache template here.
How hilarious is my Kindy teaching partner!! This is an example of the type of photo that is on the front of the card, with writing above that read 'I moustache you...'
The inside of the card reads 'Did you know I love you this much?' with 2 arms that spread out from each side of the card with a hand print on the end. The Kindy kids will then trace over dotted writing which reads, 'Dear ______ Happy Fathers Day 2012, Love from ______'. You can download your own template for this card by following this link. I have added a few varieties of inside pages - choose the one that suits your students needs and ability best. The cover is also in the same file, once you have selected your inside page simply print and then photocopy them both onto A3 card and fold in half. Voila! The arms are made by cutting an A4 page in quarters length ways, we then glued them onto the inside of the card. Get your copy of the card template here.
****A copy of the finished product will be added to this blog post very soon!!***
Nuts & Bolts snack mix
This is a really easy savoury snack to make that the dads will love to eat. We used this recipe from www.taste.com.au and duplicated it three times so that there would be enough for each dad.
After it cooled we packaged it up in cellophane and attached this tag to it.

Father's Day Trophy
The trophy is a "pinspiration" and was really easy to make. Unfortunately the link has been blocked via Pinterest due to spam??? I have added the photo below and it is pretty self explanatory... We painted clear cups with gold paint and the hot glued them together. The lettering is made of foam alphabet pieces. I didn't have enough "D's" for all of the trophies to say #1 Dad so there are a few different sayings on the trophies including 'my hero, I [heart} you, #1 Dad and top Dad'. The students then drew and cut out their own handles to give the trophies some personality!
We also have a Fathers Day questionaire available to download.
Guaranteed to get a few good laughs! Download your copy here.
Phew! I think that's all for now... Thank goodness we only have Christmas left to get through! We would love to hear about how your class is celebrating Fathers Day this year. Share your ideas with us on our Facebook page.
