HOW TO MAKE AWESOME CRAFTS FOR FATHER'S DAY


Get creative with Dad on Father’s Day and have a ton of fun with these DIY projects.


1. KITE

You will need:

Pencil
Newspaper
String
Ruler
One 60cm stick
One 50cm stick
Scissors
Tape
Ribbons

How to:
1. Put the longer stick vertically on a flat surface.
2. Using your ruler and pencil, mark the 5cm point from the top of the stick.
3. Then put the small stick horizontally over the mark on the long stick, to form a cross.
4. Join the two sticks together with the string.
5. Tie the string to one point of the frame securely, then continue around the kite, tying it to each of the other three points so it forms the shape of a kite. Now the frame is done!
6. Lay the newspaper down and put the frame on top of it.
7. Cut the newspaper out around the frame, about 2cm bigger all around.
8. Fold the paper edges over the strings of the frame and secure with tape.
9. Make a hole on the highest and lowest points of the kite.
10. Cut a 70cm-long string. Thread one end through each of the holes and knot securely.
11. Cut a 150cm string (this will be the string to fly the kite).
12. Then tie it to the middle point where the two sticks cross.
13. Tie your ribbons to the bottom point of the kite.

You are now ready to fly your kite with Dad!



2. CRAYON ARTWORK

You will need:
Old newspaper
A sheet of strong paper (size of your choice)
Wax crayons (old broken ones are perfect)
A hairdryer or warm oven

How to:
1. Put the newspaper down on a table or other surface and place the paper on it.
2. Scatter the crayons over the paper.
3. If you have a hairdryer, use it to melt the crayons (if you don’t, put the paper on an oven tray in a warm oven until they start melting). Now the fun starts! Move the wax around in circles, and up and down, making any kind of pattern you like.
4. When you are happy with your masterpiece, remove any leftover crayons and wait for the wax on the paper to set.

Your masterpiece is ready to be hung. Daddy’s office maybe?



3. THE CARD THAT SAYS IT ALL

You will need:
2 sheets of paper (coloured paper is great for this gift)
A pencil
Scissors
Glue
Coloured markers and anything else you want to use for decoration

How to:
1. Cut a strip about 6cm wide from the length of one of your sheets of paper and set it aside. Now, put one hand on a page and trace around it. Then put your other hand on the other page and trace it too. Ask someone to trace your left hand (or your right, if you’re left-handed) if it’s too difficult for you.
2. Ask an adult to help you to cut out the hands.
3. Write ‘I love you’ on the back of the left hand, then colour or decorate both hands as you like.
4. Fold the cut-off paper strip in half lengthways, then fold it twice more, to make an accordion shape with eight blocks.
5. Write the following letters (one on each block): T-H-I-S-M-U-C-H, then glue the accordion strip onto the palms of each hand. Put the hands together, and open them up to show Dad the message inside!


4. A CROWN FOR A KING

You will need:

Scissors
Old magazines
2 sheets of thin cardboard
Glue
Stapler or sticky tape

How to:
1. Start by cutting out pictures you would like to put on Dad’s crown (look for pictures of things he likes, such as cars, aeroplanes, soccer or cricket).
2. Using the stapler or sticky tape, join the two sheets of cardboard together to make a long strip.
3. Now glue all the pictures of Dad’s favourite things onto the cardboard.
4. Once the glue has dried completely, use your scissors to cut V-shaped notches out of the top edge of the card, to create the crown shape (you might want to get Mom or another adult to help you).
5. Now hold the two ends together and fit it on Dad’s head to see how big the crown should be, then staple or stick it together and crown your king!



5. PRE-SHAVE PAMPER OIL


You will need:
1 part grapeseed oil
1 part olive oil
A few drops of an essential oil of choice
A bottle and lid

How to:
1. Here's a super simple gift that you can whip up that dad can use all the time. Mix together all the ingredients.
2. Decant the mixture into a bottle that you have decorated. Pre-shave oil is a great homemade alternative to shaving gel and helps leave skin silky smooth.
