St. Mary Preschool Frog Class students and their dads recently got together for an annual evening event called the Dad’s Box Supper. The students spent classroom time decorating and wrapping a framed copy of a father’s prayer and making cookies to present to their dad during their evening together.
That evening, dads brought their Frog Class children to the cafeteria to share a “box supper” that each had brought. Once dinner and the cookies had been eaten, each child and dad worked together to build something. The crafts were made of donated scrap wood assembled with glue and nails and decorated with a variety of accoutrements which included popsicle sticks, doilies, stickers and wooden shapes. The ideas were endless.
The evening ended with the fathers being presented with their framed prayer. Everyone gathered for a picture to show off their completed project. There were lots of smiles… the dad’s smiles might have been the biggest.
