Father’s Day is coming up in a few weeks. I find that shopping for Father’s Day gifts can be really difficult. I always look for something meaningful but not tacky, and also something that will be useful as well. That is not an easy feat.
With our boys getting old enough to celebrate Father’s Day, but not yet at the age where they can buy anything, I thought I would create a Father’s Day printable for them to gift to their dad.

I created this “My Dad” booklet for preschoolers and kindergarteners. There are spaces for them to answer short questions, and also spaces for them to draw and color.
I thought it would be cute to go with a superhero theme, since we all know many of our littles look up to their dads.

The booklet will end up being a half page size booklet. So after printing out the pages, cut the sheets in half.
Read through each page with your child and help them fill out the blank spaces, if needed. My son is at the fun stage where he is comfortable with all his letters and sounds that they make. And he is just starting to put short words together. I usually sound out individual letters in the words and he can write them!
It’s incredible how quickly littles can absorb and learn. And it’s amazingly gratifying to see their improvement, and the delight it their faces when they sound out a word!
Children can draw pictures on each of the pages, and color the pages. I think the first page with the superhero Dad will be so cute colored in.
Once everything is written and colored in, stack the pages together in the order that you want. Staple the booklet together. And you’re done!
If you want to take it a step further (to make it seem more like a gift), you could laminate the pages before stapling them. And then tie a little ribbon around it, or even wrap it up before gifting it. My boys love pretending to wrap presents, so I’ll be getting them involved with this part for sure.
*Sidenote: I find it meaningful to write the date on the back or corner of any cards or handmade gifts from my kids. I often forget when exactly they made these things. In the moment, I usually just thank them and put it aside. And then I sometimes find these sweet cards and I’m not sure when they made them for me. I think it definitely adds a bit more to the memorable item when there is a date on it.
