Necktie for Dad

Duration: short

Age: toddler, child

Skill for Bub: Hand/eye coordination, Just for fun, parties celebrations


It’s hard to know what to make for Dad’s. Here’s a great gift idea for Fathers Day that the kids can make themselves; decorated neckties. Granddad may even want one too!

  Great gift idea for Birthdays, Fathers Day or Christmas (also great for Grandfathers)!

  • Cardboard
  • paint
  • glue
  • scissors
  • elastic
  • buttons
  • paper
  • pictures (or whatever you want to put on it)


  • Cut out the shape of tie,
  • put two little holes near the top to put the elastic through,
  • get your child to paint the tie with whatever colour they like, let it dry,
  • then paste whatever you want on to it,
  • add the elastic.
