You will need:
A jar (recycled – an old jam jar works well)
Foil wrap (preferably recycled – perhaps from chocolate or candy bars – I collected ours from chocolate bars – that is before we stopped eating them – but more on that in tomorrows blog)
Chocolate (preferably fair trade chocolate we used Coco Camino http://www.cocoacamino.com/)
Piece of old material
Instructions: (with an adults help if required)
Melt the chocolate in a glass bowl in the microwave (microwaves take up less power than the stove)
Allow the chocolate to set ( you can put it in the fridge to speed up the process)
Cut a circle in the fabric large enough to cover and overlap the jar lid and tie it on the lid with a piece of ribbon or string.
Voila, you have Individually wrapped chocolate drops you’re your favourite dad for Fathers day and remember to reuse or recycle the wax paper.
I hope your dad enjoys these tasty treats. For added individuality you can place a nut on each drop of chocolate before it sets.
Next weeks craft will be a 'watering can' for your garden.
