Easy, Quick, Father’s Day Card

Father’s day is just around the corner, and you don’t want to be caught without a card for the Dads in your life!  This card is super simple so the kids can do it, and is versatile.  Use white paper for a dress shirt, plaid for an ever day shirt, or maybe even a Hawaiian print for the dad who likes the islands!

You will need:

2 of the same papers of your choice (Just standard sized)

If doing a dress shirt pick a coordinating piece of paper for the tie

Scissors

Glue stick

Buttons if doing a casual shirt, your tie will cover if you are doing a dress shirt

Begin by folding one of your sheets of paper in half.  Now, cut a strip off of the other paper for the collar.  It doesn’t need to be super wide.  If you are doing a printed paper that is not printed on both sides, you will want to cut your strip twice as wide as you want it and fold it in half, print side out.  This way the inside of the collar matches the rest of the shirt.  Fold it so it looks like this.

Now glue your collar on to the front of your shirt by placing the back against the top of the card, and gluing the collar pieces down to the front of the card.  It should stay that way.

If you are doing a dress shirt, cut the tie out of your paper you have for that.  If you are doing a casual shirt, glue your buttons to the front.  Now you will want to cut a pocket out (again for the casual shirt).  Make it shaped like this:

Now you are ready to add a sentiment to the inside of your card, and you are done!  Now you have a cute shirt card for the Dad you love!

Photo booths are such a fun and easy way to celebrate at a party. My daughter turned 13 and wanted to do something fun, but wasn’t sure what that would be that didn’t feel “babyish”. A photo booth was a great way for the girls to have fun and let out their inner top model while they snapped photos. While cell phones aren’t my favorite thing at a party (I want them to be with the ones that are there and not focused on their phone) they came in handy so that I didn’t have to play photographer all night. Which, I am sure also helped some of the girls feel more free to be goofy without me standing over them all night.

All you need is a white sheet and some streamers for the backdrop. Hang in a well lit area. This is hard if the party is at night, but just find a spot where you can either move some lamps over, or where you have an overhead light.

We tacked our sheet to the wall being sure to hang it high enough that it wouldn’t show for the taller girls. We hung it at the height of the doors. Take your streamers and tape them at the top of the sheet, where the edges are above. Once you have the steamers the way you want, take one more and tape it over those raw edges so that they are covered.

All you need are some fun props (super easy to make) and you are all set to get snapping your guests having fun at your next party.

Kindergarten Graduation Snacks ~ Healthy and Fun!

Do you have a kindergartener this year?  I do, and wanted to provide a snack for his graduation party.  I don’t know about your child’s class, but I think most of them get plenty of sugary treats during their parties!  That is fine, but why not have something cute, and at least somewhat healthy too?!

You will need:

Fruit cups or applesauce cups

4×4 inch card stock squares (1 per cup)

googly eyes

glue stick

Sharpie (optional)

bakers twine, thin strips of paper, or ribbon

kindergarten graduation snacks ~ healthy and fun, #healthysnacks, #easysnacks, #graduation, #kindergarten, #graduationsnack, #easycrafts, #easysnacks

Begin by cutting your squares of paper into 4×4 squares.

Then, Turn your fruit cup upside down and glue the square to the bottom of the cup.  The thin plastic to open it should now be on the bottom.  Once that is glued onto the bottom of the cup, glue the googly eyes.  I found they stayed on fine with normal glue stick, but if your fruit cup is textured or more round then mine, a hot glue gun may work better.  Glue the eyes on and draw a face with your sharpie if you desire.

Now, cut three strips (per cup) of bakers twine, ribbon, or even of paper.  Tie them in a small knot at the top and glue them to the top of your graduation cap. (The square you glued on first)

Feel free to write something on the top, or leave it plain!  Would work for any graduate.  Would also make a fun addition to a gift basket of supplies for the high school graduate that is headed to college.  I provided some links above for the products on Amazon, why not order them now and be ready to make them when the time comes?
