If you're fussy, you can have the chocolates reading the same way. I did this with a three year old...

Am I the only one that sometimes struggles to find the right gift for Father’s Day? Whether it’s for my dad or my husband, they both like practical gifts, but sometimes I want to give them something a bit more special.

I asked my dad while we were working if he wanted anything in particular for Father’s Day. He said ‘yeah can you give me a new back and some new legs!” Funny response, but not very helpful.

Now that Esther has come along, I get her to make a special Father’s Day card or craft to give to her dad and her grandpas (one of which is her great grandpa).

My dad loves flying remote control planes and so I decided to use this hobby as the design for an easy craft that dads will love and kids will enjoy putting together. It’s my Father’s Day Chocolate Plane Craft.

For this craft you will need;

1 Box of Cadbury Favourites

1 King Size Chocolate bar (we used Chunky Kit Kat)

2 Small blocks of Lindt Chocolate

Sticky tap and/or glue tack

All the chocolates above are on special at Woolworths right now. We made three planes for under $25 with a lot of chocolates left over to eat while we made the planes. 🙂

Easy to make more than one..

All you need to do is

  1. Sticky tape 1 block of Lindt chocolate to the top and underside of the King Size Chocolate bar
  2. Sticky tape 1 Cadbury Caramel Chocolate (from the Favourites selection) to the front of the King Size Chocolate bar to represent the cockpit
  3. Sticky tape a small bar of chocolate(from the Favourites selection) to the top back of the King Size Bar to represent the tail wing.

You can attach some string if you want it to dangle… but I reckon once Dad marvels at the design, these planes will be crash landing into his mouth!
