Father's Day Craft for Kids: King for a Day

Why not make Dad "King for the Day" with a personalized crown.
Decorate your crown with pictures of Dad's favorite hobby, fishing, golf, baseball, cars...
We raided Dad's old car magazines to create our crown. 
Cut out lots of picture in varying sizes.
Glue them down onto a piece of of card stock.
Be sure to tell your kids (or help if they are younger) to overlap the pictures.
Once dry cut piece of paper in half the long way.
Cut V shaped notches out of the top to create crown shape.
Staple or tape together. 
Roughly measure using one of Dad's ball caps if unsure of size.

Our kids are excited to "crown" Daddy. I have already been asked the question, "When is Father's Day?" 20 times today since making the crown. Be prepared!

What a cute idea! We'd need to cover ours in cameras, computers, and smartphones =)

It's been so long since I've visited your blog. You look like you've done some wonderful things. we don't celebrate Fathers' Day until September so I'll keep this in mind. It's difficult to think of a different craft each year.
I also love your little soap box houses. So cute.
And I could have done with your filter flower idea a week or so back when my daughter asked if she could try drawing under water. In the end she drew on paper towel and we dipped one end in water so that it crept up and seperated the colours in the ink.
I hope your well. How is your house sale going?
