Father’s Day DIY – Update

I really feel sad that the kids didn’t make enough “cool” DIY presents for their dads. I think this is the first ever year that I wanted to take the time to do so, instead of relying on what school/after school craft they come up with. I feel like I failed that I didn’t force them enough to make time to make a craft. This year, I was blessed with Mother’s Day presents, so I thought that each dad should get the same blessings.

I took them to Sunday service today. There, they made a Daddy Stache – a jar of candies, they also handed out a kit/game of some sort. I’m not one to preach about my faith. But, I thought I should share at least one benefit of going on a weekly basis….when it comes to Mother’s Day, Father’s Day – They hand out cool stuff!

So, when my daughter’s dad gets to pick her up, she has a gift bag to hand out – 2 she made on her own. When my son’s dad comes home tonight – he’ll come home to a gift bag filled with presents.

Until then,


Father’s Day DIY – Duct tape to save the day

Honestly, I had planned their DIY since Mother’s Day for their respective dads. However, the kids are having their own mood swings, and were not inspired to work indoors. They want to ride their bikes and stay out til dinner. So with literally 2 days to go. I had to think and revise their DIY’s down to 1.

I had the kids come up with the fastest DIY they have ever made.

My daughter’s present[s] to her dad is:

Picture Frame/Key Holder: made out of jumbo craft sticks, duct tape, and hooks from the 99c store. I will instruct her dad to place a picture.

My son’s present to his dad is:

Picture Frame/Key Holder: made out of wood frame from 99c frame @ Walmart, and hooks from the 99c store. Andy is working on a sketch portrait…

Until  then,
