Father's Day Craft

I know it is time for Mother's Day, but I like to start getting stuff together for the fathers also.  I want the kids to be able to do crafts for their fathers even though we will not be in school at that time.  I always have such a hard time finding something cute for the kids to make their fathers.  I made this last year, and it seemed to be a hit.  I got the idea out of Oriental Trading, but just had the kids create it themselves and make it their own.  I bought the pots really cheap at Michael's.  The biggest expense was the Hershey Kisses.

1. First you paint the bottom of your pot the color of your choice. This will be the shirt.
2. Paint the rim of the pot a different color. This will be the collar of the shirt. I chose white so that the tie would stand out.
3. Next, get a pencil and trace the shape of a tie.
4. Then paint the tie in the colors and designs of your choice.
5. Finally, fill the pot with hugs and kisses for your dad.
