Father's Day Ideas?

What am I going to do for my husband for Father's Day?? AAaa!! Do you feel this way? What do YOU do for your dad, father-in-law and husband for Father's Day? We usually make him a big, yummy breakfast. And the kids make him homemade cards for them.

A couple of years ago I helped my kids make my husband a necktie to wear to church. (Sorry, I couldn't find the picture I took of him/it that day, so here it is 2 years later with half the "stuff" fallen off. We will have to fix it up for this year.)


I made this with red felt, and used one of his ties as a template to trace for the shape/size. I let the kids glue pom-poms and foam shapes on the front. (We used Tacky Glue.) Then on the back they wrote their message and each signed it.

To make it "wearable" I took one of my sons' little ties that was quite "tattered", took the zipper part off, and hot-glued it to the homemade felt piece of art that the kids decorated. Walla! A special tie for Daddy to proudly wear to church. He wore it last year too. (We will either make him a new one for this year or fix this one up for him.)

Father's Day is just a few days away. I better think of something before it's too late. Does anyone have any other fabulous ideas?? Pin It

  1. I just found a cute idea. Take a Tshirt and have your kids step all over it with their feet in paint. Then write: My kids walk all over me. Here's the link: http://familycrafts.about.com/od/personalizedshirts/ss/FootprintTShirt.htm

    I think we are going to do it for grandpa.
