Amazing Fathers {free Father’s Day printables}

 

Oh, Father’s Day! How I love you. I look forward to a day to spoil my husband in the middle of the year and let him know how much we appreciate him. I really do think fathers are overlooked too often in life. Mothers tend to be with their kids so much, but did you know (and these are just a few):

· Toddlers securely attached to fathers are better at solving problems.

· Six-month old babies score higher on tests of mental development if their dads are involved in their lives.

· With dads present in the home, kids manage school stress better.

· Girls whose fathers provide warmth and control achieve higher academic success.

· Girls who are close to their fathers exhibit less anxiety and withdrawn behaviors.

I am SO grateful for the incredible man that I married. He is caring, loving, warm, happy, optimistic, crazy fun, loyal, funny, sarcastic, smart and driven (plus a hundred more things). He teaches my kids by example and fosters so much growth in them. His one wish is to spend as much time with them as he can. He takes them out on dad dates (though the boys and he call them “mandates”) and wants nothing more than for them to be productive and successful contributors to our society. He is our superdad!

Look what an awesome sport he is ;)

I also couldn’t be more grateful for my dad. What an awesome dad he has always been. He was always worried about us, he would sacrifice time and energy to help us succeed in whatever we wanted to. He is FUNNY, kind, gentle and tender hearted. He taught me so much through his example…never afraid to dig in to lend a hand and do work right along the side of us. And he is passionate. He was a P.E. educator for 43 years and I have never seen another like him. Love you dad!

AND lastly to my father-in-law who taught my husband how to be a dad I will be forever grateful! When I think of him, I think of the most service-minded, loving, happy man. He has a knack for being the most giving and sweet hearted man (though he would NEVER admit it). He’d give the shirt off of his back if it would help someone else, even a stranger. I couldn’t think of anyone else that I would want to have as an awesome father-in-law.

So as I was thinking of these amazing men in my life, I remembered this sweet video I have watched a thousand times in the last while (it’s one of my kid’s favorites). And each time I see these quotes I am reminded how grateful I am for the men in my life.

How grateful I am for the dad’s in my life. I have surely been blessed a million times over.

I hope you will print these out…use them as a note card or hang them so they will be reminded how much you love them.

Father’s Day Toolbox Coupon Book {free printable}

Father’s Day is just around the corner on June 16th, and I wanted to put a spin on a popular gift for dad…the coupon book.  Does the dad in your life LOVE tools?  If so, this is the coupon book for him!  There is a whole set of tools for him and even a sweet toolbox to hold them in!

And inside the “box” you will find these:

There are so many ways you could put this together. I simply punched a hole in the bottom of each of the tools and put them together with a brad, but they would also be so cute just individually put in the “toolbox”.

To put the toolbox coupon book together you simply need:

the free printables below

scissors

glue

small hole punch

a brad

and a closure of some kind for the toolbox…I used velcro.

1-Cut out all of the pieces. Each tool comes with a coupon tag that can either be placed on the tool with a jump ring:

or that can be glued directly on the back:

2- Attach the coupon tag according to your preference

3- Punch a hole in the end of each tool and add brad to make into a book…OR leave each tool separate. (Afterall, you are making a spiffy toolbox to put them in!)

4- Crease the large red rectangle on the fold line. Crease the flap 1″ down from the top. Glue the flap onto the back of the folded rectangle. Glue the sides of the rectangle. Glue handle on back. Your toolbox is now finished and just needs something to close it.  I used velcro on mine (right under the “Happy Father’s Day” rectangle), but feel free to use what you have on hand.

5- Write out your coupons and place them in the toolbox and celebrate that you have a thoughtful and fun gift to give the dad in your life!
