Want to really make Dad's Day? If you're looking for ideas for the kids to do for their
dad, we picked up some pretty good ones from Hallmark that we'd like to share with you:
You've Been Framed: Gather photographs of dad from childhood to the present, and frame them all
together in a photo collage. (An alternate option is to frame pictures of him as a child alongside
pictures of his own children at about the same age.)
The Way to His Heart: Have a theme party based on the food you're serving. Example: For "A Steak-Out,"
you'll serve steak (what else?) and plan an activity like a "whodunit" game or send dad on a scavenger
hunt to find his gifts. Or, have a "Hooked on Dad" party and serve seafood. Decorate with an ocean
theme, make it a pool party, you get the idea. (Make sure everyone at the party tells him at least
once that he's the catch of the day.)
From the Tool Box: For the handyman dad, have the kids make him a new tool box. Decorate a shoebox
to use as the "tool box." Then make him tools out of poster board or construction paper (laminate
it if you like). Write little quips for dad on the tools, like: Saw — "You're the best Dad I ever
SAW." Hammer — "My Dad is waaaay tougher than nails." Nuts & Bolts — "I love when Dad gets a little nutty."
Pliers — "Nothing can pull me away from my Dad." On the outside of the tool box, write "For the Best Dad Ever Built."
Just Like Daddy: Dress up the kids in Dad's clothes. (The bigger, the better.) Take a photograph of them, have it enlarged
and write the caption, "I wanna be just like you, Daddy!"
Pennant Winner: Make a pennant from fabric or paper. Use fabric paint or markers to write
Dad — I'm Your Biggest Fan!
Dear Dad: A nice activity for older kids — have them write Dad a letter thanking him for everything he's
taught them and describing the most important things they've learned from him.
Following in Your Footsteps: Great for babies and toddlers — place their footprints on good quality paper
that you can frame. Add a caption that says, "Following in My Daddy's Footsteps." (Make sure you date it.)
