Father’s Day Handprint Poem

I can’t believe that Father’s Day is almost here again. Literally a day or so after last years Father’s Day I found a beautiful poem and knew exactly what I was going to do with my charges for this years Father’s Day present.

The poem goes:

Sometimes you get discouraged
Because I am so small
And always leave my fingerprints
On furniture and walls

But every day I’m growing
I’ll be grown some day
And all those tiny handprints
Will surely fade away

So here’s a little handprint
Just so you can recall
Exactly how my fingers looked
When I was very small

See, a really lovely poem.

For this Father’s Day gift you will need:

  • A canvas – I got ours at hobby craft, but they are available at Ryman’s and all good art shops.
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Pens

Cover your little one’s hands in paint and get them to make some handprints on the canvas. Then leave it to dry.

When it is dry, draw some lines in pencil across the canvas. Do it lightly, as these are only guidelines for writing on.

Write the poem out. I wrote most of the poem out, but left room for my little ones to write in certain words like I, you and me. Rub out the guidelines.

Happy Father’s Day!
