4) Father's Day Freebie Craft
I showed this to you last year; but it’s so cute I had to share it again!
Simply Seleta has a cute idea over HERE. It’s for a Hero Box, filled with all sorts of candies, snacks, etc. that are labeled with Hero labels. She gives you the templates to download and customize (all from Jordan of Oh Happy Day). It’s all in a wooden box (I’m thinking Michael’s or JoAnn probably has these). You could also add ‘Daddy Coupons’ such as ‘Redeem this coupon for one yard mowing’ to it for something a little more long term. Men LOVE to know they’re our kids’ heroes, so this is perfect!
Another idea is to ‘interview’ your child – if they’re old enough. Two is okay as long as they’re pretty verbal. Ask them questions about their dad. The answers are so cute. You can type up all the questions and answers in different fonts and colors in a word document. Then print and take it to Kinko’s to get it laminated, punch holes in the top and tie a ribbon through it for hanging in his office. Here’s an example if you’d like to use it for a template (all of the fonts may not transfer, so you’ll have to use your own). This is only about $2 for the cost of laminating.  Or, you could frame it.
One more idea is to get a ‘grilling apron’ and put your kids handprints on it with the year and their names under each one.  Use your 50% off Michaels coupon to grab yours!
Here’s to a wonderful Father’s Day with all of our Super-Hero Dads!
Thanks Frugal Coupon Living

5)  Father's Day Craft: Memo Board
Father’s Day is Sunday and if you are scrambling for a cute craft for the kids to make Dad, check this out!
Who would have thought that photo paper works with dry erase markers?  Seriously, it is so cool.  I supplied the kids with some craft foam pieces and we glued photo paper in the middle.  You can even put magnets on the back to hang it on the fridge.
Snag some Dry erase markers, and dad has a cool …Hand Made…Memo Board for his notes! The kids are so proud of them, I may end up with memo boards all over the house.
Thanks A Few Short Cuts
