Father’s day is coming up. Help your kids let Dad (or Grandpa) know that he’s one classy guy with this pasta art that lets your kids customize the bow ties.
You will need:
Card stock paper and some printed designer paper
Bow tie (farfalle) pasta
Small paint brush
First, lay out dried bow tie pasta on a piece of newspaper or in an old shirt box and let your kids paint them lightly with acrylic paint. They can make them solid colors, create colorful patterns or even cover them with glitter; just be sure that you don’t apply too much paint or your pasta will take forever to dry. Allow at least 20 minutes for the paint to dry.
Next, cut a piece of card stock in half and fold in half again to create a top-fold card. Help your youngsters glue the colorful pastas to the front of the card and allow time to dry.
Finally, have your kids write a special Father’s Day message on the front and inside of the card for a chic DIY card you won’t find in any gift shop.
