Just FYI for all the rest of you who are in the middle of the end-of-school-year-craziness: Father’s Day is coming up in a few weeks. In a dramatic departure from our usual Father’s Day celebrations, which include me remembering about it at the last minute and throwing some paper and crayons at the kids (make cards! write a note! hurry!), I’ve actually planned ahead this year and come up with a few fun ideas. Of course, I’m going to ruin them all for my husband by posting them on the blog weeks ahead of time, but hey, it’s the thought that counts, right?
Plus today’s project is cute enough to make up for all the times I’ve slacked through Father’s Day in the past!
It’s a free printable Father’s Day questionnaire. Print out whatever color you like best, add a photo, and help your kids fill in the blanks. (Downloads at the end of the post.)
You’ll find out that they think their dad is 4 feet tall and they know he loves them because sometimes he buys them lunch. It’s awesome.
My daughter worked so hard to fill the whole thing out by herself!
…while I sat next to her spelling out each word. That part was a little less awesome (‘cuz it took lightyears!) but it’s pretty adorable to have it filled out in her own preschool handwriting.
The printables are sized for 8.5×11 paper and come in three colors: blue, green, and red. Just print out whichever color you like best at 100% or actual size. I printed on white cardstock so it would be a little sturdier than using plain paper. Here’s what the print file looks like:
Fill in the blanks and add a 4×6 photo. I bought a “document” sized frame at Walmart for a few bucks and put the finished questionnaire in it so my husband can put it on his desk at work. My daughter is super excited to give it to him on Father’s Day, when he’ll pretend he hasn’t seen this post. What a great dad 🙂
