Make a frame incorporating nuts & bolts for Fathers Day
4 x large lolly sticks, paint, paintbrush, glue, a few nuts & bolts, a handwritten note from the child or photo
Have child paint the 4 popsicle sticks. We used acrylic paint, but tempera paint would work as well.
After the paint is dry, glue the popsicle sticks into a frame.
Once the frame is dry, have child choose which nuts and/or bolts to use as the frameâ€™s decoration. I would suggest using a small handful, as too many could weigh the frame down.
Have your child glue the nuts and bolts to the frame. I used craft glue, but a hot glue gun would work too.
While waiting for everything to dry, decide what will go inside the frame. Engineer really wanted to write a note to his papa, and I wasnâ€™t going to discourage that!
Glue the note to a piece of cardboard. This will keep the note sturdy
Attach the note to the back of the frame, making sure everythingâ€™s centered.
Be sure to write the childâ€™s name and the year on the back of the frame!
