Father's Day Freebie

Even though we are out for summer, I still like to send home a little something for Dad for Father's Day. I wanted to do something that I knew most dads would like, which is no easy task! But I think this year I got a winner!

It's the World's Greatest Pop!

Each student needs a popcorn tub and 4 kernels of popcorn. I suggest you copy the tub on white construction paper or card stock and the kernels on yellow construction paper or card stock. There are 8 kernels on a page, so each students only needs half of the page.
Students will color and cut out the popcorn tub. Then they will write 4 things they love or appreciate about their dad (or another special male they would like to give the gift to). Next they cut out the kernels and glue them to the top of the popcorn tub.
I ask my students to write a note to their dad on the back of the flap of the popcorn tub. The key is to write the note UPSIDE DOWN, so that when you fold the flap up, the note will be facing the right way.

When they are done, you can staple a bag of microwave popcorn between the tub and the flap. And VOILA! I LOVE the way they turn out every year!!
