This is a variation of an activity that my former colleague, Gary, used to do with his class for Father’s Day. You can add jobs or activities- the focus is for things to do together. It does not need to be restricted to just dads- it can include grandpas, uncles or a mentor. This activity was featured on The Crafty Crow! Check it out- you will not be disappointed! http://www.thecraftycrow.net/2014/06/2-unique-last-minute-gift-ideas-for-fathers-day.html It was also featured on: http://friendstitch.over-blog.com/ Materials Light coloured paper Coupon template coupons_for_you_and_me Scissors Pencil Eraser Pencil crayons Sewing Machine/ Thread OR Stapler Directions Print the coupon template (as many times as you like for as many activities as you want to include. It is also good to have back-ups for mistakes.) Fill in the activities (e.g., going to the library together, raking the lawn, buying dad a coffee with your allowance, riding the subway etc.) Add an illustration of you and your dad/ special male figure. Cut out the pieces. Stack them up. Sew the double lines with a sewing machine or staple along that area. Remove the thread from your sewing machine and sew along the single line (as shown) to create a perforated edge (for tearing the coupons off) Give to your dad, grandpa, uncle etc. Purpose Creating reasons for writing and understanding the components of various writing forms. Safety Notes A sewing machine should be used by an adult or with direct adult supervision depending on the child’s age and abilities. Use a stapler with caution/ adult supervision.
