I purchased this very cute craft from Teachers Pay Teachers from "A Cupcake for the Teacher's" tpt store, and my 4th graders LOVED making them. It was great to talk about the characteristics and virtues they see in their dad or loved one. We spend a lot of time in our classroom talking about virtues, and this activity was a great conversation starter. They shared stories of why they felt a certain trait represented their dad, uncle, grandfather, loved one...
Here are the pictures from our Donut Shop Day!
|First, they had to buy a Plain Donut.|
|Then, they chose their flavored Frosting! YUM! =)|
|Very Cute "I Love You" card...|
|They could make their donut for their dad, uncle, grandpa, or any loved one.|
|They purchased the Sprinkles with the words that represented their loved one.|
|Even more Sprinkles!!!|
|I bought these tiny pom-poms to add a 3D effect to their donut, and called them our "Special Sprinkles!" My kids LOVED these.|
|I also had them decorate a bag to put their donut in. I told them they could buy a gift card to Starbucks to add to their bag, so they could have coffee and a donut! =)|
|Here is the donut I made about my Dad!|
|Happy Father's Day Dad! I love you!!!|
