Inspired by something I saw on Pinterest last night we made this Father’s Day card today!
Simple and cute…
Step 1: Print Poem on paper
Step 2: Paint bottom on Dad’s shoe with washable paint and stamp over poem
Step 3: Paint bottom of child’s foot and stamp over shoe print
Step 4: Glue on piece of construction paper for a bright border.
We also did a really quick photo session outside with my son wearing his father’s shoes and doing daddy-like things. We’ll use one of the photos and make a cover for our card on another sheet on construction paper and then tie them together with yarn.
Here is the text of the poem:
“Walk a Little slower, Daddy.” said a little child so small.
I’m following in your footsteps and I don’t want to fall.
Sometimes your steps are very fast, sometimes they’re hard to see;
So walk a little slower Daddy, for you are leading me.
Someday when I’m all grown up, You’re what I want to be.
Then I will have a little child who’ll want to follow me.
And I would want to lead just right, and know that I was true;
So, walk a little slower, Daddy, for I must follow you!!
