Father’s Day is just around the corner and what better time to get crafting.
Father’s Day is a special day to honor fathers and father-figures in our lives. In Canada, Father’s Day is celebrated on the third Sunday of June, though it is also observed widely on other days in many other countries. Father figures may include step-fathers, grandfathers, brothers or other male figures that help and guide us through life’s journey.
How do we, in turn, honor these prominent male figures?
Some people give cards, chocolates, clothes, accessories or gift vouchers. Others take their father or father figure out to the movies, enjoy a meal together at a restaurant, lounge in a café, or simply enjoy a restful day in the park.
In my classroom, we are preparing for the big day by creating The Perfect Package.

Below is a poem I wrote and plan to share with my students as we begin crafting next week. Keeping in mind that not all children may have a father in their life, I left the recipient open to include a figure that may take the place of a father, whether it be a grandfather, uncle, brother, etc.

I wanted to come back and tell you how brilliant this activity was. The students loved the idea of giving their Dads a package and had a blast with making stamps. It also worked so well for my students who don’t have a father in their life (one dedicated the package to their grandpa and another to her mom). It’s so wise of you to keep those children in mind. Thank you!!
I’m so happy to hear that you enjoyed the poem and craft. Thank you for coming back to share your experience – I love getting feedback!! 🙂
