This weekend is Father’s Day and I am very much looking forward to spoiling my sweet husband! Its a fun day and a great opportunity to thank him for all he does for me and our family! I couldn’t ask for a better dad for my kids!
As I was pondering this upcoming holiday and wanting to create something fun that I could use, I was a little at a loss. Most of the ideas I was finding were all very “Dad” sorts of stuff like cars, trucks, tools, fishing, etc. That’s all great to celebrate my dad! But my hubby is a high school theatre teacher who would much rather spend the day talking about Shakespeare than out on a lake fishing! None of the typical dad things really fit him.
Then I ran across some superhero stuff and the ideas began to grow! What I love about this theme is that this really fits every dad, right? Being a dad is tough work! Your life is never the same once that first child is born! And just like I know my hubby feels that he often falls short of the ideal, so do they all! But truthfully, being willing to show up for your kids, that is enough! And providing for them, talking to them, spending time with them, counseling them, and all the other little things dads so in a day makes them their own kind of superhero!
My kids love their dad! He pretty much spins their world! I’m just the woman in the background who cooks and cleans (sometimes)! So, here are the fun ways we will be honoring dad this weekend! You can find all these printables in my Free Resource Library!
The first thing I did was put together the banner! This has 12 different pieces and they fit 2 to an 8.5×11 sheet of cardstock so a great size for a banner! I cut out the pieces, cut a long piece of string and then used mini clothes pins to attach it to the string:
Here is part of it more close up:
Next I cut out the other pieces and taped the kapow to a toothpick to put in the pancakes. I removed the label on the orange juice and taped on my new label! I filled a paper lunch sack with his favorite treats (chocolate covered raisins) and added the “stache” label! I also cut out the colored quote and added it to a frame.
I also trimmed the edges from the paper. I designed this to look very much like the old fashioned comic page! And I had my kids write a note to him in the center. I also printed the coupon book and had each child write out a service they wanted to do for their dad on one of the coupons. It makes such a nice little bonus to this whole breakfast ensemble!
Once I cooked up the food and added everything together, here is what he gets!
And there you have it! With the printing, cutting and food preparation, I think it took me about 30-45 minutes! Not bad for how fun this makes it! I guarantee the SuperDad in your life will LOVE this!
