Contributed by Leanne Guenther

Children will enjoy making a Father's Day paper craft instead of a card this year.  They can print a message to dad on the back!

Tip 1:  Glue the bear to the front of a folded over piece of construction paper or a doily to make a cute card.

Tip 2:  Purchase fancy paper from the scrapbooking store and print the B&W version onto this for an extra fancy Bear.

Tip 3:  Scotch tape a straw or popsicle stick to the bottom to make a puppet.

Tip 4:  Glue a small piece of sandpaper on the back to make a felt board character

Tip 5:  Add a little message like:  I love you 'bear-y' much, Dad!

Craft Instructions:

Option for mass-producing - young children:  Print out the B&W template.  Trace the pieces onto stiff cardboard (back of paper pads works well) or margarine/ice cream container lids.  Cut out to make permanent templates.   Allow the children to trace these permanent templates onto different colors of construction paper to make their bear.
