Last week we combined our stART activity with Father’s Day. It was fun to read stories about fathers and then make a special gift for Daddy! We read two books this week. The little one LOVES Elmo so he listened to “Elmo’s Daddy” that tells all about Elmo’s dad. Elmo is also fuzzy in the book, so super fun for a two-year-old. The second book both boys really enjoyed. It was “Nelly Gnu and Daddy Too” by Anna Dewdney (same author as the Llama, Llama books). This book shows the fun relationship between a father and child in creating something fun from big cardboard boxes.
This idea came from I HEART CRAFTY THINGS again. I thought it would be so fun to make for my husband from the boys. I thought it would be great to put on his desk at work. Who wouldn’t be motivated to work seeing those adorable faces, right?
I found the frame at a thrift store and bought it on Memorial Day when they had 50% off store wide. It was a steal! It worked perfect for this project. The challenge was getting my two-year-old to stand in Daddy’s shoes long enough to take a nice picture. The photo taken of the completed frame wasn’t really great so I put just the pictures below, too. The other frame openings I printed out the poem (below in the picture collage) and a heart with the boys’ names. Quick, easy and cute!
We had an enjoyable Father’s Day celebrating with all the dads in our life! After church we took Dad out to breakfast. Later we had dinner with Grandpa P. To follow-up dinner we took Grandpa T. to ice cream. We are so blessed with all these wonderful men in our lives!
