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.
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 12x12 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'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!
