Father's Day Gift Ideas

Guest Author - Alissa Moy

Father's Day is June 20th, Sunday. Here are some ideas to help your preschooler make a fuss over dad and grandpa!

1. Create a super yummy snack mix for dad and gramps. Here is a recipe, with an attached poem you can customize.

Recipe:

1 cup of raisins
1 cup of Cheerios
1 cup of popcorn
1 cup of Skittles
1 cup of Good N' Plenty
1 cup of chocolate chips

Directions:
Have your preschooler measure and mix the ingredients in a large bowl. Using a ladle, help your child scoop the mix into baggies (one for each dad/grandpa). Tie the baggie with a pretty ribbon in blue or green, and attach the poem below. Feel free to encourage your child to customize this recipe to suit their perfect pop!

Poem:

Raisins are for how well you are "raisin" me.
Cheerios are for how big and round your hugs can be.
Popcorn is to say thanks for being a pop that's solid as a rock.
Chocolate chips show I'm a chip off the old block!
Skittles show the rainbow of love and cheer you give.
Good and Plenty is the love you'll get as long as you live!

2. Make a portrait of dear old dad. Have your preschooler draw a picture of dad or grandpa. Before they begin their masterpiece, remind them of what features they may want to include. Does grandpa have a beard? Maybe dad wears glasses. Brainstorm ideas before giving your child a pencil. After they are satisfied with their drawing, give your child crayons or colored pencils to make their portrait come to life!

3. Make a craft or color a card for dad and grandpa. Check out the DLTK link at the end of this article to view several cool project ideas. Easy crafts, printable coloring pages and games all lead to Father's Day fun!

However you choose to help your preschooler celebrate dad, be sure to encourage lots of hugs, kisses and special treatment for the man of the house! Below are some ideas for cute Father's Day themed books your preschooler will love to read with daddy.
