Father’s day gift idea for preschoolers

Last year, the children at preschool made this cute little Father’s Day gift.  I want to say, before you read on, that I know the spelling of “Duct Tape” is incorrect on the gifts but for some reason, it wasn’t noticed until after the projects were all done! LOL!

I still thought it was such a cute idea to share anyway – only you might want to correct the spelling:) …

To make this you need a picture frame, duct tape (there all colors of duct tape out there now) and a piece of paper with the words “Duct tape and dad keep this family together.”

Simply cover the frame with duct tape, and add a duct tape “X” in the center of the paper…

I think this is super cute!

    THIS IS PERFECT!!!! We were once on a camping trip and my Hubs actually duct taped the roof of a trailer back on so the drive could arrive home safely to fix it. When he got in the car I said “We were camping. . .why do you have duct tape.” His response was “I brought two rolls, you never leave home without duct tape!”

    There actually is a brand called Duck Tape if you want to defend yourself! This is a very cute idea. Thanks for sharing it!

    Deborah, guess what? There really is “Duck” tape! HeHe! I laughed the first time I saw it. So the dads probably never thought anything of it!

      That is so funny – I had no idea that there was such a thing. I just assumed we had mispelled the word! Now I don’t feel so bad:)
