“I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father’s protection.” —Sigmund Freud
It’s SO true! Dad’s are so important and it’s time we celebrate them! Father’s Day is just around the corner and here are a few ways to make it extra special for him.
2. Make a wooden “DAD” sign. We did this a couple of years ago and it sits in my husband’s office at work. We chose his favorite team’s colors (orange and blue for the FL Gators) and had fun painting it.
3. Make Dad his favorite meal. Mom, let the kids do this. Even if it makes a mess, and it’s not the best tasting food around, Dad will remember it forever.
4. Wash his car for him. Again, it may not be the best car wash he’s ever had, but it’s the thought that counts and he’ll love that his kid’s hands covered his car to make it clean.
5. We *heart* Dad photo. Take a photo and frame it. He can put it on his desk at work and always remember just how much his kids love him.
A great book to have the kids read with Dad on Fathers Day or leading up to this special day is Thank You, God, for Daddy This book is great to read to let Dad know how much we appreciate him. In this book, a little lion cub thanks God for his wonderful daddy—who gives big hugs and piggyback rides, who takes great care of him, and most importantly, who offers love, guidance, and encouragement. My boys love this book and we’ve already read it a few times with Dad.
How are you celebrating Dad this year and making him feel extra special?
