Father’s Day Book and Stacking Stone Craft

With Father’s Day right around the corner, I thought I’d share a Father’s Day book and stacking stone gift idea! I tend to leave Father’s Day gifts for the last minute because I never know what to get. I’m so happy we’re ahead of the game this year with a memorable gift my husband will love!

My Dad Rocks! is a unique book your students can make for their dad, uncle, or grandpa. This book makes a great Father’s Day gift or birthday present! Just cut out the rock shapes, have your students fill out the questionnaires, and staple or tie the pages together with string. If your students are too young to write, you can record their answers for them! Try adding the My Dad Rocks stacking stone craft to make the gift extra special!

Father’s Day Book

I love reading the adorable and hilarious answers kids write down on Father’s Day and Mother’s Day questionnaires. The answers come straight from the heart, with no filter!

This year, I decided to create one for my boys to fill out together! My two year old is way too young to do this activity on his own, so he helped out by answering a few of the questions. And remember, If your kids are too young to write, you can record the answers for them.

This book includes the following prompts:

  • A spot to draw their dad
  • All about my dad: name, age, height, eyes, hair
  • My dad’s favorite things: food, drink, song, movie, book
  • My dad always says:
  • My favorite thing to do with my dad is:
  • My dad rocks because:

I also included uncle and grandpa options as an alternative for Father’s Day or birthday gifts!

The book makes a nice gift on it’s own, but this stacking stone craft immediately popped into my head when I was creating this book!
