    Dad's Pad
    By Brigid

    Clip to ScrapBook
    We made a "Dad's Pad" in second grade and in kindergarten. You get stiff paper or light cardboard, cover it with construction paper (9x12), have the children trace a tie out of construction paper. They get to decorate it with whatever they think their dad really likes (i.e., fish, baseball, stripes, etc.) and glue that as a decoration to the pad. Then I give each of them a small pad of paper to attach to the pad. If I have one available, I glue a picture of the child on the pad. The title of "Dad's Pad" is written on it by the children and they sign it with "Happy Father's Day!..." Lastly, I punch a couple of holes at the top and attach a small piece of yarn (or you could put magnet strips on the back). They turn out cute.
