DIY with kids | photo letters for dad

December 20, 2008



I usually try to give my husband something crafty from the kids for holidays. Here's a gift from Father's Day (the year before last) that's still a favorite. It's easy, inexpensive and the results are so incredibly sweet.

Materials:
Poster paper (one sheet for each letter)
Kids (number varies)
Scissors
Camera
Wide picture frame

Instructions:
Cut out letters using a full-sized sheet of poster paper and hand them off to the kids.
Take as many shots as you can (vertical works best) and stop only when you've got a bunch of photos for each letter (or someone cries and tries to eat the paper).


Find your favorites and pop them into a frame. I printed them out as 4x6 inch photos and put them into a long Ribba frame from Ikea.

I don't have a photograph of the final framed product because it's at Brian's office but here's a small, digital version:


I promise....it was as much fun as it looks.

That is seriously one of the cutest ideas I have ever seen! I wish I was reading this blog a week ago, instead of 3 days before Christmas!!!! Maybe for his birthday!

Isn't it the sweetest? And look at how young they were!

I know. I know. I'm so last minute with posting (always) but that's because I wait until the last minute to do everything! That seems to be when my brain works best :)

There's totally still time left. I know you can do it! I'm STILL working on this year's plan...
