Father’s Day at Big D & Me

I’ve listed 2 new items in my etsy shop and think they would be perfect for Father’s Day.

The first item is a Father’s Day printable for the kids to fill out.

Kids often say the funniest things and those words can make a great gift for Dad. Imagine the changing responses Dad will get year after year as the kids fill out this form.

The second item is a listing for 6 separate pages of questionnaires for kids to fill out.

The forms included in this packet are:

All About My Dad

All About My Mom

All About My Grandma

All About My Grandpa

All About My Aunt

All About My Uncle

Each form is unique and will be cherished by the recipient.

Just think of all of the celebrations during the year that these printables could be used for … birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and Grandparents Day just got a whole lot

Only 13 days until Father’s Day…you’d better hurry on over to Big D and Me on etsy.


Father’s Day Gift – Part 2

In addition to the printables the boys filled out for Derek, we put together a few snacks for him to take to work.

I bought 3 of these containers from Target

Filled them with snacks: honey roasted peanuts, “kisses for Dad,” & sweet candies

Wrapped a ribbon around the sides – secured with tape

Alex created some labels for each jar: Super Dad, #1 Dad, We love you

I desperately wanted to edit the labels Alex created by enlarging the word size, changing the font but I held back. How it looks is really not the point. In the end, Alex was so proud of his labels and so was I.

I chose these containers because they are stackable and would take up less space on Derek’s desk at work

At Target we also found some firework paraphenalia – pops & confetti bombs

So we made personalized sign covers for them. Cheesey I know.

Pop sounds like Derek is 75 years old but we just went with it

Here’s the final Father’s Day gift: the 3 containers, the father’s day printables, the dynamite gifts, and messages written on hand tracings. (Some people are having trouble printing out the printable. Please email and I will send you a copy if that happens.)

Andrew’s says, “You’re my best dad.”

For the record, Derek is Andrew’s only dad. 🙂

Father’s Day Printable

Father’s Day printables are flying around blogland but I decided to create my own.

Alex and Andrew filled out their “All About My Dad” forms and will give them to Derek on Father’s Day along with a story they are writing.

I wrote down Andrew’s answers for him.

If you’d like a copy of the Father’s Day printable please visit my etsy shop.

Thank you.

How are you celebrating those special dads in your life?
