Father’s Day Pinspiration….

It’s Father’s Day. This Sunday.


Despite knowing that Father’s Day is an annual event and having had since this time last year to prepare, I am unprepared…

This is what I made the Smalls do we did last year…

Fathers Day3

Fathers Day1

Fathers Day2

I then put them in a frame with space for 3 photos and it made for a very sweet, very personal, very cheap frugal present.

And actually, now I think about it, I will do the same again this year, as it would be pretty cool to have the Smalls doing the same thing each year for Father’s Day for the next 18 years 🙂 (And it makes my life much easier…)

And just in case you are uninspired by my amazing Make Do and Mend idea, I have done a very quick Pinterest search searched far and wide for lots of lovely Fathers Day crafts and present ideas for you to make with your little darlings, and popped them all on one awesome Father’s Day Pinterest Board

I know Father’s Day falls into the giving for the sake of giving thing, but it is nice to show Dads that we love and appreciate them, and if you can make something for them with the Smalls, then it really does mean something.

If hubby is very good, he may even get one of these


Or is it just that actually I would really like one of these…?!

    Oh you are good. Without the blogs I read, I would totally forgotten it was father’s day, let alone that I had to make something for free! Thank you!

    Love it! Unfortunately doesn’t help me though as I don’t think it would be the same without any smalls 🙂

      How about a cake or a home cooked meal Lorraine?

    What lovely boys the “smalls” are, doing it every year (and & keeping them) will be a real moment in time treasure of the future. Great ideas as usual.

    Love your photo frame idea – very sweet!
    I haven’t even managed to organise anything yet for my dad and dad-in-law; planning on cooking them a roast meal and St Clements Pie for dessert but that’s as far as it’s got! 🙂 x

    I noticed all the Father’s day posts but didn’t realise you’d created a board – will check it out, thanks!
