This craft is less structured but still fun! Invite your child to draw a picture of his or her father on a sheet of construction paper. At the top, print the phrase, "Fathers Are Loved All over the World." Give your child this list and let him or her write the foreign word for "father" randomly across the paper. To preserve this placemat, cover with a sheet of clear plastic adhesive paper.
For this fun project, Mom will need to pick out an old tie that Dad no longer uses and knot it in a wearable fashion. Now, gather empty jar lids or frozen juice lids from around the house (be sure they are clean and dry). Either draw pictures of special events or cut out photocopies of photos to glue into these lids. Apply heavy glue to the backs of the lids and adhere these to the tie. Let the project dry thoroughly. Give this gift to Dad as a special photo collage to hang at home or in his office.
