I have already told you my girls LOVE planning for holiday’s. The day after Mother’s Day they started planning an easy craft for Father’s Day! One thing they all decided is that Dad likes gum. He always has a pack in his car, on his dresser and in his church bag. My three year old now shares the love of gum (much to my dismay) and knows where to search to get a piece when she wants one. Dad doesn’t like this so he tries to remember to hide his gum.
In honor of our Dad who loves gum I have created fun Father’s Day idea, 15 Reasons Why I Love My Dad. I have a printable to put on the outside of a package of gum with 15 sticks. When he opens the package he will find one reason on each stick of gum why he is loved.
Father’s Day Gum Wrapper – 15 Reasons Why I Love My Dad
- Slim Pack Gum 15 ct
- Father’s Day Gum Printable
- Avery 3/4×2-1/4 label OR blank template
- 15 Reasons Father’s Day Worksheet Printable
- glue or tape
- scissors or paper cutter
Using the 15 reasons printable help your children (if needed) write down the reasons why they love their Dad. Keep this paper because chances are your Dad will not keep their gum wrappers but you can put this paper in their scrapbooks, if you are that type of person.
Transfer the 15 reasons onto 15 labels or the blank template. Open the gum package and carefully take out the 15 sticks of gum without actually opening the individual wrappers. Stick one label on each of the sticks of gum wrappers, use glue if using the blank template. Place the gum back in the package and close it up. I used the printable template for these because we didn’t need 750 labels for this project. I will let you know the glue I used did not stay very well on the gum wrappers. Tape worked much better. Test out your glue first.
Cut out the Father’s Day Gum Printable and glue it to the front of your Dad’s favorite pack of gum.
Keep it hidden somewhere safe until Father’s Day!
If you don’t want to open up the gum here is another Father’s Day printable you can put on the outside of the gum, just because we thought it was funny.
Have your kids already started planning for Father’s Day?
