    Default Fathers day ideas???!!!

    Hi all, I just cannot think of something good for Father's Day!! Their dads birthday is close too so wondering if anyone can think of something I could do to maybe combine the two or is that not a good idea??!

    I'm so stuck with this!! Didn't have this problem with Mother's Day!!

    I did have an idea of their footprints next to daddy's shoe print but his feet are a 14!!!! Huge!!

    They are twins 21m boys, any suggestions welcome!! Xx

    I saw on an fb group some painted canvases which looked good.

    They cut out the word dad in paper/ card and stuck it down on the canvas, let the children paint the canvas any which way they please and then once dry remove the attached letters.

    Was very effective

    When I was a nanny, one year we bought a plain white silk tie and then the children painted it with silk paint :-)

    Dad still wears it over 10 years on!!! But he did like way out ties! ;-)

    We also did silk hankies.

    Another thing we did was to get one of those photo frames with a mount inside with lots of 'holes' for photos and the children decorated the mount. I put a few photos in of the children and left the rest empty for parents to fill.

    And one last idea... The children made banners saying happy birthday and I took photos of them holding banners and then put those in a frame. Mum loved it so much, she had put on mugs and all sorts of things :-D

    I have 4 dads having birthday this month and all near Fathers Day!! Very hard to do cards for birthday and Fathers Day so close together! I like the Happy Birthday banner idea.

    Hard isn't it?! How inconsiderate to have their birthdays near Father's Day!! Lol!!

    Why are men so much harder to think for?!
