Hand Print Poem
from About.com, submitted by Lynette K.
Sometimes you get discouraged
Because I am so small
And always leave my fingerprints
On furniture and walls
But everyday I'm growing big
And soon I'll be very tall
Then all my little handprints
Will be hard to recall
So here's a special handprint
Just so that you can say
this is how my fingers looked
when I placed them here today.
Be sure to include the childís name and the date on this cute gift.
Put some fabric paint on a shallow plastic plate and have the kids step in it and then onto the shirt.
This can get messy so keep wipes and rags nearby for cleanup and make sure you do this in an area that can handle a little mess.
You can really make this in any of a million ways. You can use a real frame or create your own with decorative papers. For a gift that will hold up a little better I recommend buying a frame (even from the dollar store) and cover it with papers, foam, twigs, shells, sand, sequins, buttons, and whatever other craft supplies you have and like). Fill it with pictures of Dad and/or the kids.
Hand Painted Apron

You can also include decorated cooking utensils and oven mitts.
Daddyís Memo Pad
Using cardstock, papers, markers, paints, and any other craft supplies make a creative little sticky note holder for Dadís desk.
Find a fun way to tell your special dad how much you love them this Fatherís Day. With a little creativity and some time you can create a keepsake that he will treasure forever.
