Kids' craft: Important notes for Dad

Lisa Hanson

Every dad needs reminders. How about making a reminder board that also tells him how much you love and appreciate him?


• Wooden frame

• Flexible canvas magnetic sheet (self-adhesive)

• Small photos of each child

• A clear, flat-backed stone (1 per child)

• Self-stick square magnets (1 per child)

• Glue, pictures of kids, scissors

• Foam letters to spell “dad”


1. Peel the back off of the magnetic canvas and press it into the frame. Set aside.

2. Lay a stone over each picture so you can trace around it. Cut the picture to size.

3. Spread a thin layer of glue over the top of the picture. Press the flat side of the stone onto the picture and let it dry. Do this for each picture.

4. Stick a magnet onto the back of the stones. Now you have your message holders!

5. Decorate the frame with foam letters. Stick a love note on the board using your special magnets and wish Dad a Happy Father’s Day!
