How to make a Father's Day Tie Template

Step 1: Print out the blank tie template

We have included a blank tie template for you to print out, you can find it by scrolling down below. We have two versions of the tie templates to print; one is blank for you to add your own design, the other has the words 'you are TIE-rrific'.

Step 2: Decorate the tie template

Children can decide how they want to decorate their tie template. They could draw pictures, get out the paints or cover their tie printable with stickers! We decided to add fingerprints. 

Daisy (aged 3) enjoyed covering her tie template in rainbow coloured fingerprints. Decorating the tie with fingerprints is a perfect way to get toddlers and preschoolers involved in creating their own artwork as it is easy enough for even the youngest of toddlers to do independently. Older children might enjoy creating a pattern using the different colours.

We used the rainbow ink pad that Daisy is using in the image above to make a butterfly bowl and card with baby Oliver a few weeks ago and Daisy has been desperate to do a craft where she can use the ink pad ever since. She even had to sit on Oliver's play mat while she did her artwork so she could be like him!

Step 3: Cut out the tie template

Younger children may need a little help with cutting out their tie design.  Older children should find it relatively easy to cut out as it only has straight edges.  Cutting out their own tie would be great scissor skill practice for older preschoolers.

Step 4: Make a shirt out of coloured cardstock

To make the shirt fold a piece of cardstock in the colour of your choice in half. Find the middle of the front of the card and make a small cut at the top.

Fold the card down on both sides where the cut is to create 2 triangles.  This makes the collar of the shirt. Make sure that the folds are pressed down well.
