This is a throwback post! It should have posted this a month ago, but somehow or another the month of September got away from me way too fast! We celebrate Father’s Day in September in Australia – I am not sure why it is a different time, but it is! Growing up, we always sent my American Grandfather a Father’s Day Card during Australian time since we couldn’t ever buy one in June!
We had Bunnings come and create tool boxes with the kids. They loved loved getting to put it all together and use the hammer. Our Grade 5/6 buddies came in very handy with this activity!
We used butchers paper to make wrapping paper. Kids painted a picture of their Dad and his favourite things. The canvas easily fitted inside this wrapping paper!
The we did some Father’s Day writing and a Father’s Day Card (thanks to Ms Duffy) and put it altogether. The kids were so proud of their gift they had for their father’s! The looks on their faces when Dad said he was taking the toolbox to work was priceless!
