5 Things I Love About Dad For Father's Day

Having little ones in our lives is such a sweet joy.
Whether they are your kiddos or your grandchildren,
you can always create something memorable with them.
And Father's Day is the perfect time to make a simple yet sweet gift for dad
or grandpa by using their precious hands :)


All you need is some card stock, a brad, marker for writing, scissors,
and of course a sweet little hand for tracing :)

Trace your cutie pie's hand.
Cut out five hand shapes from card stock.
Ask them what five things they love about their daddy or grandpa
and write them down on each hand.



Poke a brad through all five hand shapes so that they can easily be fanned out to read.


Make Father's Day special for that wonderful man in your child's life.


Have a glorious day, my friends!

A father is neither an anchor to hold us back,
nor a sail to take us there,
but a guiding light whose love shows us the way.

Very cute idea for the kids. Fun making them too.

One Father's Day when we were serving up North, I got little plastic garbage cans with lids at the dollar store, and since "Dad's" usually are the ones who take out the garbage, I filled them with homemade cookies and we have one to the Oldest Dad, the youngest Dad and the one with the most kids. It went over really well.

Good morning sweet friend, I think I am finally back and returning to normal. Love you idea and think it would be kind of fun to do this for my 85 year old dad! He would smile. So sorry to hear about your mom's surgery and all. Give her a hug for me.

Thank you so very much for the lovely poetry and beautiful pictures of your roses. Also thank you so much for the beautiful Scripture quotes and the beautiful pictures of the Victorian women.

I hope you have a very pleasant and restful vacation, but I will miss your beautiful blogs.
