All about My Daddy (or Mommy)

ages 2-6


Paper, markers or crayons, stapler

Activity Detail

Here's an idea for a cute Father's Day or Mother's Day gift. Staple several pieces of construction paper together to make a book. Ask your child to draw a picture of her daddy (or mom) on the cover. Depending on her age, you can help her by suggesting a circle for a face, eyes, etc. On each of the other pages, write a question to ask her about her daddy (his age, his job, favorite thing to wear, favorite food, color of his hair, age, height, etc.) and record her answers. Her answers may surprise you and make you laugh out loud! Artistically inclined kids will enjoy drawing the answers to the pictures, too.

Or try this from www.hourpowerwatches.com/blog: Fatherā??s Day is just around the corner. Each year, we have just one day to honor our Dadā??s for all that they do for the family. Take full opportunity of the day and express your gratitude with all your heart. Make it meaningful! This is how to make it perfect: Instructions: 1. Write down all the ways that Dad is a special part of the family on a large poster board. ~does he provide financially? ~does he help make important decisions? ~does he help with child rearing? ~does he serve as a role model to the children? ~does he provide fun and good times? ~does he provide emotional support? ~does he provide spiritual guidance? ~does he help with the household? Let the children decorate the card 2. Wake Dad with breakfast in bed for the whole family. 3. Watch a funny DVD about fathers together. 4. Let each child plan one thing to make for Dad. 5. Go to some place that he always wants to go. Make it a fun time. 6. Give him a special fatherā??s day gift. Buy him something that he will like because it has a lot of meaning connected to itā??Something that will provide memories that will last. 7. Make his favorite dinner and desert. 8. Have a family hug to end the day.
