Tip of the Day -- Father's Day Ideas

It's not too late to make some gifts or crafts for your husband for Father's Day!  They don't even have to be complicated, just something from the heart.

We received some ideas in our email last week from Love to Learn.  The email suggested making an acrostic from the word FATHER, putting it on a piece of poster board, and letting your children decorate it.  Can you believe that when we were working on ours, the word "tapeworm" came up for the letter T? 

Love To Learn's  other idea was to make an edible card, using candy taped to the card to replace some of the words.  PayDay, Big Hunk, Whatchamacallit, Almond Joy, Mounds, Symphony, Whopper, Extra, and Mr. Goodbar were some examples they used. 

For example:  "Dear Dad, You are the best Dad in the whole Milky Way!  We love you for so many Riesens.  You are our Almond Joy.  You are such a Big Hunk, and your jokes always give us the Snickers.  You work Extra hard to earn that PayDay for us.  Thanks Mounds and MoundsHugs and Kisses!  Love, Your 3 Musketeers (or your 5 little Doves)"  

I entered "Fathers Day Crafts and Ideas" into Google and found these links with other ideas.  Hopefully you can find an idea for your family to honor your children's father, and maybe even their grandfathers.
