A Gift for Dad

Three years ago I bought the “perfect” gift for my husband for Fathers Day. It is perfect because it gives year after year. Check it out:

I purchased this frame and two letters from a craft store -D and A. We then went to work posing for photos with them. It ended up so cute I ended up buying another frame for “Dad” to hang up at work.

The next year I actually forgot until the Friday before Fathers Day. We had been in the pool all day so the shots are in swimsuits and kind of silly.

Last year is my favorite so far. We went to a nature trail and took our letters along. The kids are getting more creative. Plus, we were actually dressed in decent clothes with colors that popped, so I made them in color instead of black and white.

I have a little less than a week to figure out where this years photos will be taken, but the boys are already thinking about different poses they can do.

I may also paint the letters this year. Something to mix it up a little more.

Have a bunch of kids? Instead of using pre-cut letters, have the kids group together and spell them out with their bodies.

Get creative! You and the kids will have lots of fun, and DAD will love this gift every year! Post your pictures to our Facebook page or tag us on yours, we would love to see them!
