easy father's day treat ideas {for large groups}

I have been involved with making the Father's Day gifts for all the men in our congregation for the past four years or so, and after looking through our past ideas, I thought some of you might be looking for similar ideas for larger groups of dads. Father's Day is coming up fast, so here are my samples and a PDF of each tag so you can download, print, and cut your own in no time at all! I've started a Web site where we can offer printables and downloads. It's still under construction, but check it out and download the PDFs here.

M&Ms Candy Gram

Attach this simple tag to a pack of M&Ms candies, which you can buy in large quantities at Costco. It reads: "Many thanks and Much love - Happy Father's Day"

100 Grand Candy Gram
You can also find 100 Grand candy bars at Costco. Attach this tag to show Dad how much he's worth! "You're worth more than $100 Grand! Happy Father's Day
Movie Popcorn Treat
Another Costco find--microwave popcorn. The tag says, "Happy Father's Day to a great Pop!"

The other ideas I helped with I didn't have tags for, but they wouldn't take long to make.

*Attached to a can of Dad's root beer: "Pop pop, fizz, fizz, oh what a great dad you is!"

*Attached to a Big Hunk candy bar: "Happy Father's Day to a Big Hunk!"

*Make a boutonniere out of a Sugar Daddy sucker and a ribbon. Glue a pin back on the back. No tag needed!

Those are great ideas, thank you! I have a class of 1st graders and am thinking what to do. I plan to have them make Joel's 'woodpecker' to give Dad also. I will use your candy idea with it. Have a nice day!

in our ward we decided a while ago to forgo giving things to the dads and feed them instead. some years we do pie and serve it them during the last hr. of church or we have a linger longer lunch after church. they love both of them and no one has to do all that work of making little treats.
i do love your ideas though and will be sure to file them away for when i need them!

Thank you so much for the printables. I just did the popcorn one. Perfect little gift to send to Grandpa's in TX in a bubble envelope!

We were able to use the M&M tag for all the men in our church group. Thanks a bunch!

I have a favor to ask! My local community is organizing a show of support for our local law enforcement officers. I LOVE your idea & wondered if you'd be willing to make me a specialized tag? Exactly the same as the original on the top M&M, 2nd line the same Many thanks & Much love & then underneath the stars: for keeping our community safe! If you could help I would be so appreciative. And if you can't help, if you could point me in the direction of the M&M font pretty please? Thank you!!
