This is what the fathers we know will be wearing this Sunday on Father's Day: bow ties made by recycling old comic books! I bought the comic books at a local school book sale for under $1 for 3 and decided these would be perfect for a Father's Day project for my after school club kiddies. I created a template they could cut out and use to create the bow ties. Since a few of the kiddies haven't got Dads, I suggested these could also make great hair bows.
To hold the finished bow ties in place, we used plastic paper clips a friend gave me to recycle (thanks, Sean!!). We had a great time and to finish off, the kids each designed and made a card to go along with the bow/hair tie. These bow/hair ties only take minutes to make so are great last minute projects.

Still not impressed, enter Father's Day Crafts in your search engine box and you'll find oodles of stuff.
Happy Dad's Day and remember, it isn't all about stuff. Spending time just goofing off or doing chores together is a great way to celebrate with day.
