Title – Father’s Day Squeezy Ball
By – Connie Semler
Primary Subject – Language Arts
Secondary Subjects – Art
Grades – 4-5
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.
