This Candy Bar Letter is a great last-minute Father’s Day gift for any dad with a sweet tooth. He can enjoy this thoughtful and funny note with the kids, who will be eager to help him out with eating all the candy.

This craft, found on Bits of Everything, is super easy to put together. The kids will love coming up with silly sentences about Dad as they try to fit in as many candy bar names as possible on a poster board. Tape or marker can be used to cover up parts of the names to make things a bit easier. It’s a gift that’s sure to give everyone a good laugh.

What you’ll need:
• Poster board or card stock
• Candy bars
• Sharpie marker
• Tape

The full instructions for this yummy gift can be found on the Bits of Everything site. We also love Lil’ Luna’s take on this craft, where she framed the candy bar poster with a photo of the kids behind it. This way, when Dad’s done eating his treats, he can display the frame in his office.
