A Homemade Trophy for Dad

With Father’s Day being less than three weeks away, now is a good time to get your kids started on a homemade craft to give Dad on June 19th. “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” is a common catchphrase for most elementary age school kids today; so why not emphasize this expression by making a craft with items found (mostly) around the house? special occasion cardsThis cute “World’s Best Dad” trophy is easy to make, requires very few materials, and can be customized to be a long-treasured keepsake on dad’s desk or shelf.

Detailed instructions for this craft can be found on parenting site Kaboose.com that features manychild-friendly crafts for each season and special event. With so manyhow-to sites to choose from, I find that Kaboose is particularly good with its designated age recommendations, clear list of required materials, and step-by-step photos to guide craft-challenged parents such as myself.

For further personalization, change the trophy label to include the child’s name or include a poem such as the one below:

Dad, I love you
For all that you do.
I’ll kiss you and hug you
‘Cause you love me, too.
You feed me and need me
To teach you to play.
So smile ’cause I love you
On this Father’s Day.
