Father’s Day is coming!
Father’s Day is coming! Do you have anything special planned for daddy this Fathers Day?
Sometimes the greatest things in life are virtually priceless! A nice picnic with a bunch of his favorite goodies and a nice ambiance with the family is always a fabulous go-to. At Lice Clinics of America, family is our core value and we would like to wish all of the amazing, dedicated fathers out there a Happy Father’s Day. Here’s a few ideas on how to spend some time with your kids preparing for father’s day:
Father’s Day themed cookies
Frost a large sugar cookie (blend vanilla frosting with a drop or two of red food coloring for lighter skin tones or with chocolate frosting for brown shades). Trim a fruit leather mask and press it in place. Spoon leftover frosting into a ziplock bag and snip off a corner. Pipe on a nose. Make eyes on white York Pieces with a black food writer and attach with frosting. Press on hair (see below), then a red licorice lace mouth.
Upper left and bottom right: Soften a Tootsie Roll Midgee or fruit chew in the microwave for 5 seconds, roll it flat, and trim as shown; add texture with a toothpick, if you like.
Upper right: Roll and trim a large gumdrop.
Middle right: Cut a black licorice twist into pieces.
Bottom left: Sprinkle on shredded coconut.
Father’s Day Arts and Crafts
This craft would make a great present for your Dad on Father’s Day.
- You will need a clear glass, as pictured below. Then find some photographs of yourself and cut a few of them out as they will be decorating your photo paper weight. Also cut out letters from magazines to spell out ‘Best Dad’ or ‘Top Dad’ or something like that.
- Then moisten the picture a bit and stick it around the inside of the glass. Now have your Mom mix some patching plaster with water until it is thick.
- Turn the glass so the opening is upwards and fill it with the plaster and smooth the top out with a knife…then let is set until it is hard.
- Trace a circle piece of felt and cut it out and then cover the top layer of plaster with glue and then with the felt. Your Dad can stick it upside down as a paper weight photo display for his desk.
Head Screening Time!
With summer approaching , come in to your local Lice Clinics of America and we would be happy to give your family head screenings and talk about all of the ways to avoid lice this summer! It is also very important to do a head screening upon your children’s arrival home from summer camp! Prepare for father’s day so you can have a lice-free time 🙂
