I loved my Mother’s Day books created by my kids, so it only seemed fair to bring it back for Dad on Father’s Day. It is so fun to see what the kids come up with for things Dad does that make them feel loved, adventurous, and proud. The printable includes seven different prompts with space for an illustration that can be folded and bound into a cute little book. And all you need is a black and white printer, paper, twine and scissors or a hole punch — and a child that wants to surprise Dad with a special gift this year!
- Paper and printer (cardstock or copy paper)
- Twine for the binding (or ribbon or yarn)
- Hole punch (or scissors)
PRINT AND BINDING
For illustrations and instructions for printing and binding, check out the Mother’s Day Book post here.
Simple black and white printouts from the free printable make it easy for kids to customize this to make it their own and special for their Dad.
You can print it on cardstock or plain copy paper. If using typical copy paper, you may want to print the prompt pages again on color paper, cut out (about 1/4″ smaller on all sides) and glue stick over the same page. This will help cover any markers or pens that may bleed through from the drawing on the other side.
This gift is definitely “a keeper” and I can imagine pulling it out in a few years and reminiscing all the fun things my kids enjoyed doing with their father when they were younger. And they might get a laugh out of their answers and illustrations later on too!
Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there!
