Father's Day Grill Apron
Help dad become a grillin' machine with this great Father's Day craft provided by Julie Williams of Education.com.
Before beginning this craft, create a clean-up station including a shallow tub of warm soapy water and paper towel (enough so that each child can use two sheets - one to wash and one to dry). Also provide a container with water for the paint brushes. Have your students lay their canvas aprons out onto their desk and use a pencil to draw a special message to their dad (e.g. "#1 Dad!", "He's A Grillin' Machine!", "World's Best Dad!", etc.). Invite your students to use the fabric markers or paint and a brush to neatly trace the letters in the color of their choice.
Next, help your students paint their hand with color and press it to the apron to make a hand print. Students can choose to do this multiple times or opt for a more simple design. Once the paint has dried, have your students sign their name and date the apron under their print.
Extension: Encourage your students to get their families in on the surprise. Provide them with a craft supply list so that each family member can add their hand print to the gift.
