Our free printable Mother’s Day book filled with questions about mom and art from the kids was so popular that we turned it into a book for dad! Show dad how awesome he is by making him a personalized book.
Kid-Made Father’s Day Book – Materials:
– Cardstock (we use 65 lb cardstock to print out the templates)
– Colored cardstock
– Hot glue gun
Free printable book frames and fill-in prompts (download below):
The steps are exactly as we made them for our Mother’s Day book so check it out for more detailed step-by-step photos or follow the steps below.
Step 1. Print out the templates provided and cut out the pages. The pages make a 5″ book when complete. Ask your child to fill in the questions and draw a corresponding picture.
There are 10 pages of fill-in prompts and 12 frames to choose from (2 extras) plus the front cover.
Here are some of the ones my daughter drew and filled in.
For the next two steps below, refer to our Mother’s Day book post for detailed photos outlining these steps. The process is exactly the same.
Step 2. Lay out your book, with cover in front. This next step is optional but I think it makes the book look nicer and more colorful – cut out cardstock in the size of the pages with the drawings and paste them to the back so it covers the ink from the markers.
Step 3. Group your pages into a book, clip the end with a binder clip. Cut a piece of cardstock the length of your pages and wide enough to cover the width of the pages. Add hot glue all along the edge of the pages (side that is not binder clipped), then cover with your strip of cardstock. Allow to dry fully before flipping through the pages. You’re done!
We can’t wait to see the look on dad’s face when he sees this sweet and personalized book just for him!
