The main ingredients are:
A large sheet of cardboard, scissors
'Dad' letters template (download here) or do your own
Pebbles, flowers, shells, leaves to decorate (optional)
How to make your mural
Print off the template, trace onto the cardboard
Cut the letter shapes out of the cardboard
Lay the cardboard flat on the ground and sieve flour over the cut out letter shapes
Lift the cardboard gently when you have covered the letter areas with flour to reveal your 'DAD' stencil - pick a non windy, dry day or a sheltered outdoor spot.
We used a box of holiday shells, along with daisies, ferns and slate from the garden.
The children loved doing this activity, especially when I had to climb up on some rickety step ladders to take the photographs!
Have a great Father's Day, Sunday June 15th, 2014
