Fathers Day creations

I wanted to share my students cards and gifts they made over the last couple of days for Fathers Day.  You can read my post on this packet here and it is available for purchase here.

So without further ado, here are their cards.

I love how these boys decided that their Dad's would like to have their favourite football team colours on the card.  To be honest this was not even something I had thought of but next year I will be better prepared as some of the kiddos asked me what are the colours for  I had no idea.  Next year I will have the football team colours ready to go on the whiteboard.

Here are the coasters the kiddos made, I think they came out really cute!
They drew their Dad in the middle of the coaster, see the bald one down the front, hee hee.  I laminated them and then.......

I hot glued a piece of felt on to the back.

Here it is in action with my coffee cup.

I would love to see what some other Aussie teachers have created for Fathers Day!  Oh and Happy Fathers Day for Sunday all you Aussie Dads.


  1. Great idea Tania! The school I am at doesn't really encourage us to make the fathers gifts (rather we buy them at the fathers day stall) - your's are sooo much cuter! The coasters are stunning - a great reminder for Dads!


    1. Thanks Alison, I love making these with my kids. All of the schools I have taught at also do Fathers Day stalls, but I buck the trend because I really feel for those kids who don't get any money for Fathers Day. I somehow always end up at low socio economic schools so usually have quite a few of those kids. Thanks for leaving a comment (:

  2. They are sooo cute! You have some talented little artists in your class Mrs Poultney. I have tried Massimo with crayons but he still wants to eat them!


  3. Hi Tania,
    Your Father's Day creations look so cute. Great ideas. I am your newest follower. I am also from NSW Australia. I get excited to meet bloggers from Australia. There isn't many of us. You might like to take a peek at my blog Classroom Fun
