Dad Libs: A Fun Father’s Day Surprise

I’m usually good at coming up with crafts for just about any occasion.

The only exception is Father’s Day. That one stumps me every time.

So when the lovely folks at Martha Stewart Living contacted me and let me know about their printable Dad Libs card, I knew we had a winner. And, I knew I wanted to tell you about  it too.

The cards have a pretty frame on the front, so your little artists can draw their own picture of their dad, but then the fun starts inside.

The cards are full of fun fill-in-the-blank questions for your kids to answer.

The girls had lots of fun thinking of the answers and talking about how much they loved Creative Daddy.

I know I’ll have to apologize profusely to Creative Daddy for letting the girls try to guess his age. He’s no where near 50, poor guy, but at least 50 was better than her first guess… 100!

Since I’m a sneaky mommy, I also used this as a bit of after school writing practice for my Kindergartner, Lizzie, and made her write out all the answers herself.

I laughed when they answered “make money” for their dad’s job. Smiled when they said “My Dad is the best at… being silly,” and my heart melted when they said “I love my Dad because… I love him.”

We’re excited to give these cards to Creative Daddy and won’t even be waiting until Father’s Day. Luckily, his birthday comes sooner than Father’s Day. Unfortunately, that means I’ll have to come up with another idea for Father’s Day. Any ideas Martha??

You can find Dad Libs in the Good Things section of the June 2013 issue of Martha Stewart Living or online at this link: Dad Libs.
