We had a great time celebrating Father’s Day this week. I got The Very Best Daddy of All , by Marion Dane Bauer for Emily to give to Daddy for his second Father’s Day. This is a sweet story that tells how different animal daddies are special to their children.
After reading this book we made Daddy a special Father’s Day Card since we think he is the Very Best Daddy of All!! I saw the idea for this card on Thrifty Fun and knew it would be the perfect card for Emily to make this year.
To make the card I folded a piece of green construction paper in half and then cut out a heart shape. From the scraps I cut out 2 shapes for the collar and one for the pocket. I also cut a tie shape out of a piece of white paper.
Emily colored in the tie however she wanted. While I was getting the stuff together Emily finished coloring the tie so I didn’t get a chance to get any pictures.
She added a special message under her tie for Daddy. She did this all by herself before it was glued on. I was so excited that the letters were the right direction when you flipped the tie up! I had planned on gluing the whole tie down, but I actually like this idea much better :0)
Inside I wrote the Message to Daddy and Emily helped write “To Daddy and Love”
Somehow her name ended up on the top instead of under the Love, but Daddy still understood who it was from!
