we’ve been having fun preparing for father’s day over here…N made some papa portrait cards for her dad and grandfathers.
here are her portraits. (yep, she essentially has 4 grandfathers. modern families.)
we also turned a really cool magnadoodle image of hers…
into a great travel coffee mug for her dad on cafepress.com! (i love this idea of using your child’s art on everyday products. sure beats logos and advertising for other companies!)
N painted a wooden picture frame for her dad at preschool a couple of weeks ago, complete with a photo taken by her teacher.
we added the frame and the mug to a gift basket with lots of his favorite goodies.
one of N’s traditions is to make mom’s day and dad’s day signs… last year in 2009, her sign looked like this:
but this year, she was able to write and illustrate her own sign – hooray!
happy father’s day to all the dads, granddads, godfathers, uncles, and all of the amazing men who love & support our children!
