Father's Day is celebrated throughout the world. Many countries, including the United States, recognize the holiday on the third Sunday of June each year.
If you are anything like me, you don't take the opportunity to tell your father how much you appreciate him often enough. Along with the usual festivities - family gatherings, barbecues, and gift giving - encourage your children to express their sincere love for Dad.
Kids love to create their own cards with construction paper and crayons. Additionally, older children can express their appreciation in a letter or Thank You card.
We also have a couple of Father's Day coloring pages for your children to enjoy.
Instead of the "traditional" Father's Day Coupons, we have created the Father's Day Contract. These are similar to the coupons, but instead of "redeeming" at will, the contract states what services are promised.
We have included ready-made contracts:
and blank ones for your creative children to fill out:
(Here are a few suggestions: vacuuming, feeding the pet, or emptying the garbage. And don't forget the traditional hugs and kisses!!)
To "wrap" your contracts, we suggest rolling them up like scrolls and tying a fun ribbon around them.
(For information on the benefits of coloring, see our page about coloring ).
