Our Family Motto

We, the Peterson Family:

Promise to be honest in all we do and say,

Stand tall and righteous throughout each day.

Serve around the world and in our home,

Give thanks for blessings we’ve been shown.

We’ll work as a team with joy and love,

And honor our Heavenly Father above.

Tie Card for Dad

Make a great tie card for Dad.


• A piece of card stock or heavy construction paper
• Scissors
• Markers or crayons
• Glue
• 5 small white shirt buttons (optional)
• A piece of colored construction paper or an old tie (ask Dad for an old tie you can cut up, just don't tell him why you want it)

To start making the shirt, cut the top of the card stock into an "M" shape.

Fold over the M-shaped area.

Draw a line down the center.

Either draw 3 buttons, glue on three paper circle (cut with a hole puch) or glue real buttons on the paper to the right of the line you just drew.

Either make a tie from construction paper or use the bottom part of an old tie (ask Dad for an old tie you can cut up, just don't tell him why you want it).

Glue the top of the tie to the card. The rest of the tie should be free to move.

Fold down the collar flaps and glue them down.

Either draw a button on each collar flap or glue on real buttons.

Write a message to Dad on the tie, on the underside of the tie, and/or on the area of the shirt that is hidden by the tie.

Make a pocket with a handkerchief. Glue a small paper rectangle (the same color as the shirt) onto the shirt. Only put glue on three sides of the pocket -- do not put glue on the top so the handkerchief can slip in and out of the pocket. Cut out a small piece of paper that will fit into the pocket -- this will be the handkerchief. Write a message to dad on the "handkerchief."
