The Best Father’s Day Gift

Father’s Day is coming up soon, and if you’re anything like me, you’ve been thinking about what to have your stepchildren get for their dad, especially if he is the guy who has everything.  If that is the case, I think it’s best to go the homemade route and make something personal for those guys who have everything they need. (My Dad is definitely that guy, but I did manage to find a pretty useful gift for him this year. I won’t reveal what it is until after Father’s Day because he might read this! Wait for it, Dad!)

One of the best things that my stepdaughter made for my husband for Father’s Day was a questionnaire that she filled out about him.  He enjoyed all of the honest and sometimes comical responses.  And now it’s a wonderful memory that captures my stepdaughter’s view of her dad when she was 7 years old.

To get started, you can have your stepchildren draw a picture of their dad on one side of a piece of paper.  On the other side, have them write out their responses to questions or you can write out their responses if they’re too young to write.

Here are a collection of questions you could use to make the questionnaire:

1. What makes Dad happy?

2. How does Dad make you laugh?

3. What does Dad do when you’re not around?

4. What is Dad really good at?

5. What is Dad not so good at?

6. What does Dad do for a job?

7. How are you and Dad the same?

8. What is the best thing about Dad?

9. If Dad were a cartoon character, which one would he be?

10. How do you know Dad loves you?

Have fun with it! Your stepchildren will enjoy doing something special for their dad, while your husband will love reading their responses!  Feel free to share your own questions in the comments. (Or any funny responses you get!)
