If you know me, then you know I’m the least crafty person ever. I’m a fourth grade teacher, but have awful handwriting. If I need to write nicely, I need to write very slowly and make an intense conscious effort. (I will say, I do have nice cursive, if I take my time.) My mom is an artist through and through. My sister got that gene, too. They both have great creative eyes. Not me. Anyway, I’m proud to share some Pinterest Craft Wins for Father’s Day 2016 today! You’ll see what I mean when I say I’m not crafty. These Pinterest craft wins were made by my toddler, facilitated by me for the special guys in our lives.
My dad, he’s just the best. Seriously the best. And can you see why I’m obsessed with my hair? This was the first time after I washed it and it took me five minutes to blow dry, no flat iron needed! Alright, now onto Father’s Day Pinterest crafts!
My dad, William’s “Pops”
William, if there’s one person in the world who I want you to be exactly like, it’s your Pops. My dad is the smartest, kindest, most selfless, hardest working person I know. We joke that he’s perfect and never make mistakes and I follow closely in his lead. He can fix anything and do anything. In fact, no matter where we are, if something is broken, William tells me, “Pops, fix it!” We sure love our Pops!
A close-up of Pops’ masterpiece:
Made up of four footprints, I had this piece matted. When I saw it on Pinterest, it was really four separate pieces, but I knew we could squeeze it onto one. William is very into all of these, fire engines, tractors, dump trucks, and race cars, so it was perfect!
My grandpa, William’s great-grandpa, “Papa”
Papa is the athlete of the family and calls William his number one! He’ll be fine-tuning William’s skills for all sports soon enough. Papa’s biggest sport is golf and he’s won some impressive titles during his golfing days! So his craft:
You are the best Papa by par! Heh, heh. Hand prints for the grass, golf tees, and colored pom poms for the golf balls.
My grandpa, William’s great-grandpa, “Poppy”
Poppy’s expertise is fishing, boats, and cars, just to name a few. He tells William to hug him, “but not too tight!” It’s so funny to hear him say this since they’re the same words we heard growing up. It won’t be long before William goes to his first circus or rodeo with Poppy, just like I did!
Hooked on Poppy! Footprint for the fishing pole and hand print for the fish. William so beautifully helped color in the water.
See? Even I could handle those crafts! William LOVED making hand and footprints! It was fun picking out crafts for each of these wonderful men. To say William and I are both blessed to have them in our lives would be an understatement. We love every minute we get to spend with them!
One more bonus photo from the weekend. Audrey slept over and brought clothes that she knew William could match. When I did her hair in the morning, she requested a side pony, so of course William wanted the same thing, as well.
Are they the cutest twinsies or what?! Possibly my favorite picture of them.
Are you crafty? Do you enjoy making things?
