Simple Father's Day Gift

This year for Father's Day I wanted Ava to help make something that Steve could take to work or put on his desk here at home.  I ran across an idea on Martha Stewart's website that I tweaked a little for this project.
  1. Print off the DAD template from Martha's site.  I printed mine on cardstock so it was a little more sturdy to work with.  Cut out the templete very neatly.
  2. Print out 3 of your favorite pictures of your kiddos.  They will need to be rather small.  That's why I would print out the templete first so you can get an idea of how big the photos need to be.  Since we only have 1 kiddo, it was all Ava in all 3. 
  3. Put your photos behind the template and lightly trace so you know about how big to cut the photos.  Cut out photos and then use double sided tape to mount the photos to the DAD cutout.
  4. Mount on your favorite color cardstock and then add your artwork to a 5x7 frame.  I was going to have Ava color the background but she was not the least bit interested.  This turned out to be more of a mommy project than an Ava project...oh well.  You could also use an 8x10 frame and there would be more room for the kiddos' artwork. 
Hope that inspired you to get your little ones working on something special for their Dada!
