Father's Day Project

Here is our Father's Day Project for Daddy! The older boys had so much fun painting there hands, they kept asking if we could do more :) I got a glossy ceramic tile and used enamel paint for the prints. I then used paint pens to write the kids names & date to personalize it and make it special. I sprayed sealant over the top so the tile will stay nice and the paint won't wear off over time.

The older boys Preston & Noah did handprints.
We added this poem on the back:

My Handprint

Sometimes you get discouraged
Because I am so small
And always leave my fingerprints
On furniture and walls
But everyday I'm growing big
And soon I'll be very tall
Then all my little handprints
Will be hard to recall
So here's a special handprint
Just so that you can say
This is how my fingers looked
When I placed them here today.

The babies Jeremiah & Spencer did footprints.
We added this poem on the back:

Walk A Little Slower Daddy

"Walk a little slower Daddy,"
said a child so small,
"I'm following in your footsteps
and I don't want to fall.

Sometimes your steps are very fast,
Sometimes they're hard to see;
So walk a little slower, Daddy,
For you are leading me.

Someday when I'm all grown up,
You're what I want to be;
Then I will have a little child
Who'll want to follow me.

And I would want to lead just right,
And know that I was true,
So walk a little slower, Daddy,
For I must follow you."

The boys are working on another fun Father's Day Project and hopefully they will be done by tomorrow. We will post more pictures once we have it completed!
