Who knows, the lure your family creates could be the one that gives him the fishing story of his life!

Father’s Day wouldn’t be complete without a great handprint gift!

Handprint gifts are the best because we can look back at them years later to remember how small our little ones used to be. Dad can easily display this great gift on the wall so he can look at it as often as possible.

Just grab a shadow box, and some canvas to get started.

The rest of the materials you probably already have nearby.
