Hello friends! Did you have a good weekend? I hope so. I just realized this next weekend is Father’s Day – crazy! I really thought it was two weeks away. Anyhoo, I have been wanting to start some sort of fun tradition to celebrate the day each year. Something simple that I could do with the kids for their dad that would, you know, make his heart melt. I think I came up with the perfect thing that is perfect to start with little ones and carry on through the years. I also rounded up a bunch of other ideas and traditions I found and put them in a list for you. Catch me after the jump!
For our new tradition I thought it would be fun to ask the kids (5 and 3) all the things they love about their dad. Then every year I can ask the same question and see how the answers change as they get older. I recorded their responses on video, and then I made up a card on PicMonkey with all of them written down. I am so excited about it! Here is how the card turned out:
I will post later today how I made the card with printing instructions and everything.
I had to prompt them a bit to get some answers beyond “he’s strong!”. Here are a few of the questions I asked them:
- What do you love that dad does with you?
- What is your favorite thing about bedtime with daddy?
- What do you love about dad’s face?
- What do you love most about your dad?
- What’s something your daddy says that you love?
I listed just a few of their answers on the front of the card, and then I will write the rest on the inside. I think he is going to love it. Especially the video – most of the kids’ answers are hilarious, but there were a few that were actually really thoughtful for their age.
So now, onto some more ideas and traditions:
