Children love making and giving gifts which they always put their hearts into, so why not let them give both to Dad on his special day. Here is an easy, but heartfelt gift for them to create. An adult will need to help with the handle, but the kids can design the rest.
Approximate Time: 1 hr.
I did this with my grandchildren and one of my youngest granddaughter's reasons was that "Daddy's feet don't stink". Of course that one went into the bucket along with the rest and I'm sure "daddy" will love it! My oldest granddaughter said that she loves how daddy's hugs feel. Dad will feel like a king on Father's Day!
We decorated ours to look like a paint pail and wrote "Heartbeats for Daddy" on it. We put all the love notes in a zip lock bag that had hearts on it and tied it with ribbon and put it in the pail. Then we attached this poem that I wrote for them. Please feel free to use it.
Here's a can I filled for you
But paint you will not find
Instead you will discover
All the love I feel inside
You mean the whole wide world to me
So a shirt just would not do
Instead I put in bits of my heart
Of what I feel for you
As you read each heartbeat
Please know I feel them every day
You are my special Daddy
And in my heart you'll always stay
