Want your kids to help create a gift for Father’s Day? Try a framed print with their handprints or footprints! You’ll need:

  • ink pad (your choice of color) 
  • a photo mat (preferably cream or white with at least a 3-inch border) 

Start by “inking-up” your child’s hand and pressing firmly on the desired location on the mat. Add a handwritten header such as “For Daddy” or print on the computer and glue onto the mat. The bottom can be signed by your kids or attach a printed quote. Add a special photo of your children and frame it for a treasured gift. 

It's a great idea for other occasions as well! Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, birthdays, Christmas, Grandparent's Day...
