When I was thinking of ideas to hand out to the Fathers on Father's day, I definitely wanted to give them a treat. Because what man doesn't like to eat? At first I thought of filling a clear plastic glove with some kind of treat and coming up with a poem about a Father's Hands. But no such luck there. Then I remembered a few years ago, the Primary made Candy Necklaces for the Mothers on Mother's Day. I thought 'How could I make a tie candy necklace?' That's when I came up with these.
I had some clear cellaphane baggies left over from our last quarterly activity. They were the tall, skinny bags. I thought they would work perfectly for this treat. I just folded the bottom to make it pointed (make it look tie-shaped). Then fill it with some kind of treat.
There is a cute Father's Day Snack Mix on Sugardoodle that you could always fill the tie with.
Then, on colored cardstock, I cut out a 'tie knot'. I think this makes it look a little more like a tie, and not just a bag of candy, haha. Then on the back, I attached a little note. It says:
Here's a special tie for you,
To tell you Thanks for all you do!
Dad, you are:
You're the best a kid could have,
I'm so glad that you're my Dad!
Happy Father's Day!
Love, (child's name).
Then at the bottom, in smaller font it says:
It's not another tie to wear,
But maybe one that you could share?
(I also included another note that you can use for the Men that don't have children in Primary.)
I thought these were fun little treats that the children could hand out. I think I'll make and fill mine before Sharing Time, then have the children sign their names on the note. At the end of Sharing Time we'll go down and pass a tie to each Father. We will have extras to hand out to the men that don't have children in Primary.
Update: Devyn over at Sundae Secrets, shared how she made my Father's Day Tie Treats. She even added some cute little doodles to the note. So cute! Thanks Devyn. Click here to view her Note for this treat.
Hope you like my Father's Day Tie Treat. And if you use it, I would love to see some pictures. If you have an idea to make it better, Please share! Thanks!
