Father's Day Hanger

This is a quick and easy (and practical) idea for Father's Day!

You will need:
Clothes hanger
Posterboard (or file folder)
Hole punch
4 ft. of yarn
Stickers and/or crayons
Scissors


1)  Trace around the inside of the hanger on a sheet of posterboard or a file folder.  Cut out.

2)  Use a hole punch to place holes every 1.5 inches (approximately).  This is pretty difficult for most preschoolers, so I ended up doing it.  My oldest did try a few times, so I put an x wherever a hole needed to be punched as a guide for her to follow. 

3)  Decorate with stickers, crayons, etc.

4)  Use a four foot piece of string (with one end wrapped with tape to make it easier to thread through the holes) to lace the decorated posterboard to the hanger.

Put a new shirt on the hanger for an easy, personalized gift!
