Father’s Day is just around the corner, and I cannot get enough of making these adorable Father’s Day crafts. My two-year old is thrilled to be making “presents” for her dad and I love how easy they are to do. For today’s post, we’ll be making a “Dinner for Dad” placemat with a free printable from Kelli.
What You Need:
- Dinner For Dad Printable
- Crayons or Markers
- Contact Paper
- Magazines if you want to add some “food” to the plate
Here’s a screen shot of the printable. Adorable!
Let’s get to work!
Let your little one color the page. You might want to trace the letters with a sharpie. They may get lost if you’ve got a kids who likes to color intensely!
Hard at work!
Once your little one has finished coloring, use some contact paper to cover both the front and the back of the paper. Voila! Instant placement. If you’ve got an older child who is looking for something a bit more challenging, have them look in a magazine for food they can add to the plate before covering with contact paper. That’s it! I told you it was easy!
Speaking of Dinner for Dad, what are you planning on making Dad for dinner this Father’s Day?
