KinderArt® Lesson/Activity


Grade: 4-6
Age: 6-10

Thanks to Gretta Keel from Sasebo, Japan for yet another most excellent Father's Day gift idea.

What You Need:

  • large piece of paper 9x12
  • crayons
  • pencil
  • glue
  • construction paper
  • photo (optional)

What You Do:

  • On a large piece of paper draw a map for dad to follow on Father's Day.

  • Start with a drawing of your house and with a dotted line in pencil draw where dad works and continue the line to take him to all the places you want him to go on his day.

  • For example you might draw a picture of the park, the theatre, the toy store, the lake, your favorite restaurant, or things you want to do using pictures of your bike or rollerblades.

  • Wind your map around until you come to a treasure chest made of construction paper.

  • Place the treasure chest in the middle of the map with a little glue along the top edge of the chest so it can be lifted and place a photo of yourself under the chest.

  • You can also just draw a picture of yourself. That way, Dad can find what he treasures most on Father's Day is you.
