This is one of those “Do as I say, not as I do” kind of posts. Have I figured out a Father’s Day gift for this year? No. Can I help you avoid the same fate? Yes!
This is an idea I did with the kids a few years ago, but is still one of my favorites. I’m a big fan of gifts made by the kids, and while I had a hand in this one, it still makes the grade. And yes, since I am a Master Procrastinator, I pulled this together last-minute.
This one worked great for us since I have three kids. (Aside from the fact that my blondie on the left apparently cut his bangs because they were getting in his eyes).
It’s about as simple as you can get while providing Maximum Cuteness Factor.
- Print off the letters on regular 8.5″x11″ paper in a nice large font.
- Then, glue them in the center of three 12×12 pieces of scrapbooking paper.
- Finally, take a gazillion pictures of your kids (individually and collectively) until you give up and work with what you have.
That means a lot of this…
That’s why I like the individual pictures. It’s a lot easier to get three decent pictures of one kid at a time than it is one decent pictures of all three kids at once. So, I ended up taking the individual pictures and framing them in a 3-photo frame for Father’s Day.
Does it get any better than that? Cute, easy, thoughtful and CHEAP!
