Make Dad a Gift


Published:

Don't let dad feel left out after all those cute cards and handprint poems from Mother's Day. Make some just for him on Father's Day! Father's Day can be a little tricky because kids are out of school, which means we can't sit back and rely on teachers to come up with cute, craft ideas. Here are a few to get your creative juices flowing, and some poems to go along with it for a nice, sentimental card.

Of course, the special card is important too. Here are some oems for the card or the beautiful little handprint or footprint you help the kids make.

A Father Means
A Father means so many things...
A understanding heart,
A source of strength and of support
Right from the very start.
A constant readiness to help
In a kind and thoughtful way.
With encouragement and forgiveness
No matter what comes your way.
A special generosity and always affection, too
A Father means so many things
When he's a man like you...
--Anonymous

Footprints
"Walk a little slower, Daddy,"
said a child so small.
"I'm following in your footsteps
and I don't want to fall.

Sometimes your steps are very fast,
Sometimes they're hard to see;
So walk a little slower, Daddy,
For you are leading me.

Someday when I'm all grown up,
You're what I want to be;
Then I will have a little child
Who'll want to follow me.

And I would want to lead just right,
And know that I was true;
So, walk a little slower, Daddy,
For I must follow you."

A Dad Is
A Dad is respected because he gives his children leadership.
A Dad is appreciated because he gives his children care.
A Dad is valued because he gives his children time.
A Dad is loved because he gives his children the one thing they treasure most - himself.
~ Author Unknown (taken from a church bulletin)
