This looks just like a real wallet ... only a lot more fun! The wallet folds so that Dad can put it into his pocket. When Dad opens the wallet he will find a writing activity in the billfold section, and 2 pouches - a Gift Card Pouch and a Surprise Pouch. I have provided all kinds of options for gift cards!

Father day coordinates card activity

List of coordinates that when done accurately creates a man with a tie, shirt and jacket on. I am using this myself for children to then colour in and add detail e.g. hair, jacket, tie and then stick on the front of a card that they will write in for fathers day.
Can also just be used as an activity for practising coordinates.
