Play Learning Tuesday: Peek-a-boo 'Candy Crush' Father's Day card

Father's Day is just around the corner, this Sunday, in fact. So the kids decided to get their hands dirty to make a card together just for their man. The big question. What card should they make? The job of coming up with the grand idea fell on mummy, and I immediately thought of Candy Crush.

Now why Candy Crush? That's the game that daddy is so crazy over at the moment. These days, and for the past several weeks, Candy Crush is his fourth best friend, after his wife, kids and work. He's so good at it, he's almost finishing the whole game. That's almost 300 levels, me thinks. So what better theme to make the card with?

So I started the whole project by preparing a tri-fold card out of cardboard paper, and cut out a square on the front page. Then I prepared felt 'candies' following the colours and shapes of the candies in the game.

Then it was over to the kids.

AA's job was to colour the inside of the card. He is using Playon Crayons, which fit into his little hands nicely.

EV was responsible for pasting the felt 'candies' to the larger felt piece. She also helped AA with some of the colouring, though half way through, she started role playing with the crayons.

EV also wrote the message inside for daddy, and it was done with some help from mummy.

In just a short afternoon, the card for daddy was done. EV insisted on giving the card to daddy today, successfully putting daddy in a jolly holly mood for the rest of the day.

What are you and the kids making for Father's Day?
