Father’s Day is coming up! Here’s one idea, perfect to do with your kids for surprising your husband with. My eldest son and I (with youngest son was there for moral support) actually made this crayon artwork for Brent’s birthday a few months ago. Since Father’s Day is coming, I wanted to share this idea and how we made it.

Choose the paper you want and start to draw a message. The shorter the message, the better. It keeps it readable and easier to make, which is important right. Start covering up the art and create a border, using tape. With the artwork we made, I used regular scotch tape. Make sure to lessen the stickiness of the tape before applying it to the paper. This will make it easier to peel off later. I did this by applying the tape on my son’s shirt so that some of the lint would stick on it. I’ve actually used this method since I was in college, but of course, you can also use easy-to-peel off tape like blue painter’s tape.

I used box cutter knife to start gently tracing and removing the excess tape.

Have your kids use different kinds and colors of crayons! Tell them to go crazy! 😉 Of course, you may help them to fill up the image more. DIY_do_it_yourself_fathers_day_gift_idea_made_by_love_kids_activity_crayons_abstract_we_love_dada_5

Once you think the paper’s filled with enough crayon and colors, you may begin peeling off the tape

It’s fun and easy! Happy Father’s Day! :)

“For I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing what is right and just, so that the LORD will bring about for Abraham what he has promised him.” Genesis 18:19
