Father’s Day Gift Idea from the Kiddos

Every year, I search through Pinterest and Etsy, trying to come up with a creative and fun personalized Father’s Day gift.  We’ve done photo books, calendars, mouse pads, coffee mugs, yes, basically everything you can stick a photo on in addition to the typical clothes, ties and cufflinks.  🙂  This year, I wanted a more personal gift for Audrey to give her daddy.  She’s at that stage of “kids say the darndest things” so I wanted to somehow capture her personality in a gift.

15 minutes into my Pinterest search,  I found a cute craft called “All About My Daddy.”  It was just a list of questions or fill-in-the-blanks for your child to answer but once I started asking Audrey to complete the sentences, it really became hilarious.

Here are a few of my favorite responses.

~ He HELPS GROWN UPS SOLVE PROBLEMS at work.

~ His favorite movie is THE LEGO MOVIE.

~ My daddy’s favorite house chore is NOTHING.

~ My daddy spoils Mommy by GIVING HER FLOWERS THAT I PICK OUT SO IT’S REALLY FROM ME.

~ I love it when my daddy and I FLY KEVIN, MY MINION KITE.

~ My daddy makes me laugh when he TICKLES ME UNDER MY ARMPITS.

~ My favorite thing about my daddy is HE SPOILS ME. HE BREAKS THE RULES WHEN MOMMY’S NOT HERE. HE LETS ME EAT SNICKERS ON RUNS. HE TAKES ME BOWLING.

While I’m obsessed with putting a photo on every possible gift, it would have been really cute to have Audrey draw a picture of the two of them at the bottom and have her sign her name.  Or put her handprints on the paper as a cute background.  There are so many options to personalize this Father’s Day craft.  But yes, I went with a really sweet photo of the two of them because I haven’t put this photo up in our house yet.

I hope you find a fun and crafty way to celebrate Father’s Day this year and would love to hear your crafty ideas to help me plan for next year!

XOXO,

Leslie
