Some schools are no longer in session during Father’s Day weekend, but we can’t forget to celebrate the dads in our students’ lives! Check out these fun ways to recognize fathers and father figures before the end of the year.
Make dads and grandpas a toolbox! On each piece of the toolbox, students can write something special about their father figure. This resource also includes options for stepdads, uncles, moms, and a blank version to accommodate all the different father figures that could be in our students’ lives!
I love this simple ornament from Crafts by Ria! All it takes is some popsicle sticks, string, and a hot glue gun. This would be a great activity to do with Pre-K or kindergarten students.
Click any of the images above to check out Ria’s craft idea! If your students are too young to write on the popsicle sticks, they could dictate to you.
Conduct a Father’s Day interview! Students will complete sentence stems to tell about their dad, stepdad, grandpa, or uncle. Glue these interviews onto colored paper and they will definitely be fridge-material! These interviews are also a great way to begin brainstorming what to write about in a poem or for another writing prompt, like the one below.
These Father’s Day ties always turn out so cute! They turn into little flip books with student responses on each piece. There is space for students to write and draw on each piece. This Father’s Day keepsake will be treasured for years to come!
