Celebrate Dad’s Day! This low prep, easy to do gift contains one toolbox themed craft for Father’s Day (also a blank basket to personalize and one with “Thanks for all you do!”). Print, color, glue and add heart, screws, nails, nuts and washers on pipe cleaners.
The Toolbox Explosion Craft requires the following supplies:
-1 sheet of card stock for the basket
-1 sheet of card stock for every two students for the hearts, screws, nails, nuts and washers.
-pipe cleaners (in the photo 6 were used)
-glue stick (to glue the basket flaps)
-tape to adhere the pipe cleaners to the heart, screws, nails, nuts and washers
-oasis or a small chunk of styrofoam to glue inside the basket to stick the pipe cleaner
screws, nails, nuts and washers into. **In a pinch you could have students tape the pipe cleaner hearts, screws, nails, nuts and washers to the bottom of the basket.**
-stapler to attach handler (more secure than glue)
1. Color basket, heart, screws, nails, nuts and washers and cut them out carefully.
2. Fold basket sides and flaps on the dotted lines. Glue flaps with glue stick. Flaps go to the inside.
3. Attach to pipe cleaners to hearts, screws, nails, nuts and washers pieces using tape or liquid glue (I like tape. If you use liquid glue caution students to not color in felt as the glue may cause the felt to bleed.)
4. Put a small amount of liquid glue on the bottom of the oasis or styrofoam and glue it to the bottom of the basket.
5. Arrange hearts, screws, nails, nuts and washers in basket by sticking the pipe cleaners into the oasis or foam or directly on the bottom of the toolbox if pipe cleaners are unavailable.
Optional: Use Easter grass or shredded paper to fill the basket and cover the styrofoam.
