If your dad has a lot of magazines and papers laying around you might want to make a magazine file. If you have a large cereal box in the cupboard see if you can transfer the remaining cereal into a large zip-lock bag. Once you have obtained a cereal box start thinking about how you can decorate the box. You want to cover the box in things that say “DAD” not literally, but figuratively. Well, maybe both. If your dad likes sports find out if there is an old magazine that you can cut up for pictures. If your dad loves to ski, you could cover the box with snowflakes. The key is to decorate the box with something that your dad will like.
Once you have a plan in mind you can begin making your gift. Have an adult help you cut the box. You should cut the top of the box off but at an angle. Maybe start four inches from the top and angle up to one inch from the top. Make sure that the size is right by placing a magazine or papers in it. The box should be cut down far enough to allow dad to see which magazine he is pulling out. When the size is right, you can begin your decoration project. Make the magazine file as fun and creative as possible. You want to make this colorful and personal at the same time.
