If Dad is a fisherman he probably has all of the equipment he could possibly need, right? Wrong! Come close so I can whisper something to you — Dad would never turn away homemade fishing lures!

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.
