Proud Mommy

My girls have been writing their names, but this is the most clear so far:

Brooke was so excited she asked me to take a photo!  We showed daddy, took a pict and sent it to the grandparents, and made some phone calls.  A very proud day for both of us.  Her sister decided to go on spelling strike for a week then wrote the most perfect G I've even seen, happily decorated her i with a heart topper and made her a with a super long tail.  She asked for no pictures or phone calls...I emailed her grandparents instead.

Fathers Day Foot Print with Poem Craft - Easy for Toddlers and Babies!

I wanted to find a fun Fathers Day craft I could do with my playgroup of kids 5 years old and under.  This one is super easy to make and a keepsake your husband will want to frame.

Supplies Needed:
  • 8 1/2 x 11 colored paper - card stock if possible not necessary  *This will be your background to the foot prints, green was chosen for this mom
  • A traced foot print from the father that you will cut out
  • Print out of your favorite Fathers Day Poem
  • 8 1/2 x 11 colored paper to use as background for the poem
  • Sticky back foam embellishments
  • Washable tempura paint
Paint your child's foot with the washable tempura paint and carefully let your child step down directly onto the fathers foot print.  Allow to dry before cutting out the traced foot.  If your nervous about the perfect foot print then follow the directions below for more then one child.

*If you have more then one child then cut out the fathers foot print first and glue onto the background paper.  Then have your kids put their foot prints onto it so their print won't get cut off during the trimming of the fathers foot print.  I love colors so each of my 3 kids will have a different color foot print.

While the foot print is drying cut out your poem and glue to its own background paper - we used pinking shears with fun edges to make it look for fun. Mundial P1852B CushionSoft Special Edition 8-1/2-Inch and 5-1/2-Inch Ambidextrous Scissors, 2-Piece Set, Pink

Once everything is dry, begin placing them on your background sheet. 

Embellish as needed! *Our Dollar Tree has tons of fun foam stickers but Amazon has some too:

Fathers Day Hand Print Craft on Tiles!

This one we'll be doing yearly so dad can see how they've grown over the years!

We bought our white tiles at Lowes, we love Lowes!  It's amazing how many craft projects for our playgroup start at Lowes.

White Tile
Washable Tempura Paint
Permanent Glass Marker

This is super easy to do:
Wipe your tile clean before starting
Paint your kiddo's hands and make a print on each tile per child
Place the tile with fingers pointing down and write: Hands Down Best Dad
Write your childs name and the year on it as well, if you'd prefer you can write it on the back - just try to stay consistant each year.
