With Father’s Day 2013 just around the corner I realized that it is time to come up with some Father’s Day Craft Idea On The Cheap. Each of the kiddos has been looking forward to individually working on their craft with me (nice special time together individually). My main issue was trying to keep each gift cheap and at the appropriate level for each kid.
Father’s Day Craft
The first kiddo up was Damien who is 12 years old. He decide he was going to do a Fathers Day Craft Candy Bouquet on the Cheap. We made our list of supplies and headed to the Dollar Tree. First, we needed a container which I quickly thought frugally and came up with a used can. We would also need some floral foam (scored a big piece at Dollar Tree) and some popsicle sticks also at the Dollar Tree. We will have left overs for another craft. Most importantly we will need to grab candy. We snagged Tootsie pops at Dollar Tree and candy bars at the grocery (we used a couple of coupons). All in all, this project was quite cheap and cost us less than $5.00.
First we cleaned up a condensed milk can and cut a round shape in our floral foam to slide down into the can. While I cut, I had him decorate his can with a piece of card stock and markers. He really enjoyed coming up with the saying he wanted to display (All American Dad). Let your child be creative and come up with a nice saying for Dad too. I hot glued the Popsicle sticks to the back of each candy and allowed them to dry before letting him arrange the sticks in his can. Lastly we tossed in some paper confetti that I had on hand as well as some little flags to go with his theme (left over from a Dollar Tree cupcake set).
Damien was quite excited to spend the time doing the project with his momma and then having something special for dad for Father’s Day. Stay tuned all week and next for more Father’s Day Crafts on the Cheap from all of the other kids.
