Fathers Day Chocolate Tie
Erica, Freelance writer, blogger, and crafty Mother. Recycled Fashion
5 to 10s
A simple craft project to give to Dad as a gift for Fathers Day. With tasty treats, he's sure to appreciate this more than a regular tie.
: 30 minutes with preparation from parent/carer
: Under 5's, 5-10's
Coloured card or coloured paper (and stick to the back of cereal box or similar)
Embellishments (stickers, glitter etc)
Colour pens or crayons
Small wrapped chocolates
Cut the coloured card or paper into the shape of a tie. A parent or carer will need to do this part for younger children.
Children can then decorate the tie as they wish. Colouring, sticking and adding embellishments are all fun.
Next stick four chocolates onto the decorated tie with sticky tape.
