-- father's day shirt and tie card art project, kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd --
Thank you for taking a look at this special Father's Day card I came up with! Each student will have fun making, personalizing, and presenting this to a special male in his or her life. Because Father's Day is sometimes after school lets out for summer, Dads often miss out.
This 7-page .pdf file includes step-by-step instructions (with photos and tips for success)! There are 5 pages of blacklines, including an optional blank greeting area for the pocket insert.
Have students add a writing piece, hand prints, artwork, or photo to the inside of the card. In addition, students can personalize their "gift" by coloring the words or adding stripes (or other designs) to the tie.
This would also make a great card to give a principal, grandfather, thank a parent helper, or anyone else who is deserving. It could also be a nice addition to a bulletin board about community helpers, the president, or "What I want to be when I grow up."
This project can be used with students in almost any grade level. I have made it with my kindergarten students (who are almost first graders by June). For them, the project needs to be very directed and they need a little help with the button part. But they love the end result!
To create, you will need:
9"x12" Construction Paper
I hope you enjoy creating these adorable Shirt and Tie Cards with your students year after year. I appreciate your questions, comments, and feedback!
