Father’s day is June 18th this year. I started wondering why we celebrate father’s day besides the obvious reason, we love our father’s and appreciate them! After a little digging I found this:
“On June 19, 1910, the governor of the U.S. state of Washington proclaimed the nation’s first “Father’s Day.” However, it was not until 1972, 58 years after President Woodrow Wilson made Mother’s Day official, that the day became a nationwide holiday in the United States.” (http://www.history.com/topics/holidays/fathers-day)
I know when my kids were little, the homemade gifts are what my husband wanted and are still around, and looked at from time to time. We are now grandparents and my husband still says I want a picture or I want to spend time with them. The older we get the more we realize memories are all we really want in life! The other gifts, even the expensive ones we tend to forget but those homemade with love gifts, we still have!
I have found some cute ideas that the kids can participate in for this father’s day and even a few printable ones!
