to Make For Dad
Fill a jar with Hersheys Hugs and Kisses.
Take one pair of new sports socks and one pair of gloves
(gardening gloves, work gloves, etc.)
Tack the socks together toe to toe.
This makes a pair of arms.
Tack one glove to the the open end of each of the socks.
Now you have arms and hands.
Wrap the arms and hands around the jar a couple of times,
crossing the hands at the front and tack together.
Attach this poem:
If all these Kisses aren't enough,
There's two hands to help with garden stuff.
If all these hugs don't work their charm,
There's two arms to help keep you warm.
If this gift doesn't show how much we care,
We have REAL hugs & kisses to share!

Father's Day Wall Hanging
Before you begin make sure the necktie is tied as is
would be when your dad wears it, because you hang it from

It's a poem with a handprint and an optional photo of the
