Father’s Day Candy Wrapper Craft for Kids
Celebrate dad on his special day with this kid-created Father’s Day craft. If dad enjoys a sweet treat (such as a chocolate bar) every once in a while, this gift is perfect. Instead of buying a generic box of chocolates or giving dad candy straight from the store, package his present in an artsy wrapper. That’s right, your kiddo can create their own individual wrapper for dad’s Father’s Day chocolate bar or candy box. This art activity is an easy way to personalize dad’s present, while helping your child to get creative and explore their imaginative side.
- Plain construction or gift wrap paper
- Crayons, markers or colored pencils
- Clear double-sided tape
- Cut the paper to fit the candy. Buy dad’s favorite chocolate bar or type of candy. Remove the existing wrapper and place it onto the paper. Trace the wrapper, creating a plain duplicate that’s the same size. Cut along the lines.
- Wrap the candy. This isn’t the permanent wrapping step. Instead, you want to create a guide for your child. Place the plain wrapper onto the candy, showing your child where they can draw their Father’s Day greeting.
- Remove the wrapper and have your child draw a picture of a special message to dad.
- Re-wrap the candy, using the double-sided tape to hold the child-drawn wrapper in place.
