Title – Father’s Day Squeezy Ball

Primary Subject – Language Arts

Grades – 4-5
Squeezy Ball

Fill a large balloon with rice. Then cut (at the neck and a 4 o’clock and 8 o’clock) and cover the original balloon.

Have the kids then make a card that says:



____________________, and ____________________

They fill in the blanks with gerunds of things they do to drive their father crazy.

They then draw a picture on the front of the card with one of the things they do.

So when Dad is stressed, he just squeezes this ball.

It is a great hit.
