Father’s day might be the time to pick out a present for the man who made you feel like a princess before your husband, but it’s also the time to help your children realize that their father is just as important to them as yours is to you.
Encourage your children to plan something for your husband even if they are wee little toddlers. Children are more open and unwary in the expression of their love, and you can help them keep it that way by letting them show their love on Father’s day.
Here are some of the things you can help your kids with
Fix Him Breakfast
Whether they are old enough to do so or little to make a good mess, a special meal from his children is sure to make him happy. Think of something simple that they would be easily able to either manage on their own or which they could help you with.
Even a bowl of his favorite cereal with a glass of a smoothie he loves set on a tray in some fancy crockery and a flower will be a good option to go for. A thoughtful breakfast idea despite its simplicity is sure to touch his heart.
There’s always a little habit of husband that children may have noticed as well. Bring it out in the open by helping your children pick out a present that is personal to him not only because it showcases who he is, but also because it has been personalized for him.
If he is a handyman, get him a nice toolbox that has been customized with his initials or something catchier like ‘Daddy’s tools’ on it. This idea can include other personalized gifts such as frames like the ones found here to add that personal touch for his tools, which might even be a good idea for you to follow through on your anniversary.
Crafts are an easy way to keep children involved while making a gesture to their father that is bound to be most memorable for him. Whether it’s a card with your baby’s footprint on it or an elaborate three-fold card, your husband is going to love the effort both you and your child made despite any imperfections in the folding and cutting.
You may even step out of the card box and help your children make a drawing of him and frame it. Crafty ideas are limitless, just keep your child’s scope of talent in mind and guide them to something that they would love to do rather than forcing your ideas on them.
Bake a Cake
Nothing spells a celebration like a cake. Whether its cake mix or a recipe you all like to try from scratch, a cake would be a lovely Father’s day gesture from your kids to their father especially if he has the classic sweet tooth.
Whatever the idea your children come up with originally is probably the one you should follow because that is what struck best for them to get their father. If it seems difficult or too expensive, there’s always a way around it to make it easier and stay within the budget. It’s all about being creative and looking in the right place.
