Father's Day was born in the United States in 1910 to pay homage to the role of the parent both within the family and in society. It was then made a national holiday in 1960 by President Lyndon Johnson, setting its date for June 19th.
In Italy, however, Father's Day is traditionally celebrated on March 19 because the Catholic Church dedicates this special day to St. Joseph, the putative father of Jesus.
Saint Joseph is in fact considered as the symbol of the good, hardworking and loving father.
On Father's Day, an excellent opportunity to celebrate love for fathers in a spontaneous, simple and fun way, and to celebrate a fundamental figure in the life of every child.
Just a gesture and a little thought, do you agree?
Here are some tasty ideas to celebrate your dad:
- Coloured pens;
- Eyes dancers.
Have your child's hand place on the cardboard, then trace the contours with a pencil and cut out the hand with scissors. Paint your fingers the color of Dad's hair, then draw a mustache and a bow tie on another card. Cut them out and paint them with markers, then glue them onto your hand.
At this point all that remains is to add the dancing eyes.
THE PAPILLON OF CARDBOARD
To make it happen you will need:
- Choice of colors;
- Wooden stick
- Hot glue or strong glue.
Proceed by drawing the shape of a bow tie on the cardboard with a pencil, cut it out with scissors and paint it with colors of your choice.
At this point, take the hot glue, or other resistant glue, and use it to apply the wooden stick behind the bow tie
A great classic is the stone frame or, if you prefer, shells or buttons ...
What you need:
- Wood frame;
- Acrylic paint;
- Strong glue;
- Sheet of paper;
We proceed by painting the wooden frame with the preferred color, let it dry and in the meantime the sheet of paper is embellished, with writings and drawings that can be made with felt-tip pens or chosen with tempera.
Then insert the design in the frame and embellish it with many pebbles, which you can leave natural or paint in turn. Glue them with strong glue or hot glue.
THE CUSTOM JAR
Do you have an old glass jam jar?
With a little imagination, customize the Legos with fun activities to do with dad at home, and not in the open air, to be placed inside the jar.
The materials are as follows:
- Lego bricks of various colors:
- A glass jar with a lid;
- Black permanent marker.
Select some activities that children like, for example a board game they love, but also cooking with dad, playing treasure hunt and so on. Then customize each brick with an activity by writing it on the side with the black marker. Once you have customized the various bricks, insert them in the glass jar and close it with the cap.
At this point, it will be enough to have dad extract a brick at random from the jar and dedicate himself to the activity.
