Father’s Day is coming up… here’s an idea that your kiddos can give to daddy. How about some quality time together?
This project is PERFECT! Depending on your kids, they might even be able to do this all by themselves!
One of the things I looked for when I was a huntin’ for a husband was a guy who would play with our kids. So, when I invited the future Mr Napping to a family reunion lunch one Saturday and he played, wrestled, and tolerantly put up with being the jungle gym to my cousins’ kids, I was pretty much a smitten kitten.
I knew he’d be a good daddy and wouldn’t be afraid to get in touch with his inner child if (when) our babies came along. He still makes every effort to spend quality time with all our boys. He does everything from just taking them with him when he runs errands to launching paper rockets, bike rides and wrestling. And my kids absolutely adore their dad. For that, I am blessed.
So, we’re putting together a Daddy Days Jar that Big J and Little J (The J’s?) can give Daddy for Father’s Day. I had them tell me things they wanted to do with Dad and then made up slips of paper and we put them in a jar.
And guess what? Since I’m super nice I’ve got the printable for you to download.
All you have to do to make your own Daddy Days Jar is download, print, cut, fold and stuff into a jar. There are 12 activities – one for each month – and a jar label/tag. Most of the activities are ones that can take as long as your guys want them to, whether it’s an hour or two or the whole day. Most of the activities are ones any kid would like.
If you would like more activities to choose from, there is an expanded version that includes 54 activity ideas, plus the template to create your own favorite activity strips in my Etsy shop.
