It’s coming round to that time of year again where we spoil and treat our wonderful dads on the one special day that is father’s day. It’s not hard to miss as you stroll by your local card shop, as the windows are decorated with special father’s day offers. But why not be a little different from the rest this year, really put some thought into the father’s day gift. We all know how children love making a mess and getting involved, so this is the perfect chance to get them excited, let their creative streak shine out!
Here at Baby Security we thought we would come up with some different ideas on what you and your little one could do to make Dad feel really special. And we all secretly know that he will be hoping to get something!
Make him a homemade personal card.
Make a card a lot more personal and Dad will love it. Cut up some pictures and stick them onto a folded piece of card and let your little one be creative with the decorating! Maybe get your little ones hand print put onto the card, this is guaranteed to make Dad smile.
Extra Cuddles, Kisses and Jumps on the Bed.
Only for this one day only! Let your children know that for this one day they can go charging into the bedroom and smother Dad with kisses and cuddles, he won’t mind! In fact it will remind him how lucky he is. Also bounces on the bed just to make sure he’s awake are also allowed just for this one day
Make a gift.
The one gift that my dad has ever kept from father’s day were the ones I made myself. In fact one still hangs on the wall now, a clay fish which I made in my Art Class. A handmade gift really shows a lot of effort and they are always greatly appreciated. It also gives you and your little one a chance to enjoy some time being creative and making a mess, something your little one will love!
Bake some treats or cook a meal.
They say a way to a man’s heart is through his belly, so why not get baking! If he has a favourite cake or loves to chomp away on cookies, why not make bake him an extra amount, just for the one day. Or if he has a favourite food, you and your little one should cook him a nice big portion of his favourite meal. Food can never fail!
Breakfast in Bed.
This is everyone’s favourite and bound to be Dad’s favourite too! This will be a lovely wake up call for him.
A day full of surprises.
Really push the boat out and give Dad a day full of little surprises. Just think of little things that would make him smile. Think of all the places that he would go to first thing in the morning and leave a little gift or a photo of Dad and your little one. He may say that he doesn’t like surprises but we all know that he will love these!
