A Great Father's Day Gift Idea
(Click photo to go straight to download.)
Growing up, whenever I asked my dad what he wanted for Father's Day, he always replied, "Make me something." Really Dad? Not a tie or a set of BBQ gear?
But now that I am a parent, I get where he was coming from. Anyone can pick out something from Amazon or Home Depot, but what I love most are gifts from the heart that take a little bit more effort than picking out something off of a shelf.
With that in mind, here is a great writing activity your child can create as a gift for Father's Day that, we predict Dad or Grandpa will remember long after the ties are retired to the back of the closet. It's called a Metaphor Poem and it is a lot of fun to write plus it tugs at your heart. Poetry is great for giving young writers quick wins like that.
There is a first draft list option that is great for emerging writers and then a second draft extension option that encourages more advanced writers to take it to the next level. Add a picture and a signature and your child has created something truly special that will create lasting Father's Day hit.
