Fun Father's Day Project!


You only have a couple of days left to come up with a great Father's Day gift, right? Here is what my kids are giving their dad this year - it turned out really cute! 





I went to Hobby Lobby and bought wooden letters (and a wooden heart) to spell out "WE LOVE DAD". The letters were 99 cents each. You can come up with any phrase you want depending how many kids you have. I then sprayed painted the letters white and the heart red.

We went to a nearby hotel that I new had great spots for taking photos. My kids ALWAYS squint in pictures when I take the photos outside, so this was a good alternative. Try shopping malls, museums, etc - they usually have some great photo spots!




I came home, printed out the photos and put into a 3 section frame that I already had. I really like how it turned out! I think my hubby will love it! Sometimes the simplest things are the best things.

That is really cute! It is hard to think of good father's day gifts. I just wish my toddler would sit still long enough to take such cute photos!

Shelley - I think the cutest photos are when the kids aren't looking right at the camera. Just silly, random poses are fun too!
