    Second Father's Day I made a photo book but made it a story about the special things they do together. DD had just turned one so it was like a showcase of their first year together. DP reads to DD every night so it will be something they can add to the evening repertoire.

    This year I am hoping to have DD do special things with the letters of DAD and put them in a 3 x photo frame. So D written in the sand, A written on an easel with DD holding a paintbrush, an another D as chalk on the pathway and DD holding the chalk.

    I love the keyring idea, we recently just brought DP a new 'Daddy' car and he just carries the key around so i might look into that.
    I wish he wore a suit, cuuf-links sound so cute! But he'd look abit funny in a suit at a construction site

    One year at work we had a heap of plain styrofoam stubby holders donated so all the kids in all the rooms did their hand print on them, then we painted their name and Happy Fathers Day with the year. For little ones, we painted one hand then handed the stubby holder to them so when they grabbed it, a hand print was left behind. We put a nice pen with it so it was a pen holder, we don't talk about beer to the kids. It was a hit though. The older kids painted their own names on.

    I'm liking the keyring idea. I'm thinking of getting something that I can put the girls initials and a spot to put bub2bs initials when he/she is born! Anyone have any ideas where I can get a good key ring from?

    I just bought small canvas and paint kits from Target. They are small framed canvases with some potted paint colours. The older kids are going to paint a picture and the baby can do some hand and footprints.

    Last year we gave him a mug with their photo on it and a picture key ring. DS also made him a card with his footprint on it.

    Also the "Handy Dad" book, which he loves! http://www.fishpond.com.au/Books/Han.../9780811869584

    There are lots of great ideas on pinterest. I'm going to take photos of the kids holding a little chalkboard that says I love my Daddy because..... And frame them together

    I love this idea, where can I get something like this done?

    Default Fathers Day

    For the first fathers day we splurged a bit and got him a watch and engraved the back, for the 2nd one we bought porcelain paint makers and a plain white mug and DD drew herself and DH on the mug (you bake them in your oven, and the paint does not come off) thats still his work mug. (mug was a really hit and DD was so proud of herself that we decide to do them as chrissie presents for all the grandparents lol)
