Tips and Suggestions

  • Use a glue stick to adhere all paper. It is easier for young children to manage as well.

Special Momentos

  • Find a couple pictures with your child and daddy and print in wallet size or smaller. Mount each picture on construction paper or cardstock to create a small frame around each picture and glue onto card. I'd recommend using a glue stick and applying the glue on both sides to be adhered for a stronger bond. Glue sticks will avoid any wrinkles that may occur.

  • Have any movie stubs or tickets from a day with daddy at the Zoo? Add these to make a collage around the poem.

"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."

If all these Kisses aren't enough,
There's two hands to help with garden stuff.
If all these hugs don't work their charm,
There's two arms to help keep you warm.
If this gift doesn't show how much we care,
We have REAL hugs and kisses to share!
