Tomorrow is Fathers’ Day and we need a Fathers’ Day card. Preferably 2 Free Fathers’ Day Cards – one from each of us, and the selection at the shops here is abysmal.
In Germany, Fathers’ Day is on the Feast of Ascension, which is 39 days after Easter Sunday. This year, Fathers’ Day is tomorrow. Most other countries celebrate Fathers’ Day on 19 March or on the third Sunday in June. Tomorrow. And we need cards!
While Miss M and I were trying to work out what she wanted to give Daddy for Fathers’ Day, I put together a few cards. I think I got a little carried away.
The worst thing is, Miss M has still not decided which one to give Daddy. Still, we thought we would make them available to you anyway. FOR FREE!
All of these free Fathers’ Day cards are available as a jpeg and pdf. While they have been designed for A4 paper, you can easily adjust the size before printing. Just adjust the margins.
From dinosaur lovers
The first two contain some of Miss M’s favourite things: dinosaurs (it is not by chance that we visit so many dinosaur museums and parks!). If you have a little dinosaur aficionado in your family, you might enjoy these ones.
If your child is still learning to write, this card might be appropriate.
Bad Dad jokes and princesses
Is your Dad prone to Dad jokes? Then this one is for you. Or does Daddy treat his little girl like a princess? Most Dads do.
(Pssst… this is the one that Miss M chose to give her Daddy – I thought she was going to go for the dinosaur one… I guess it goes to show you that kids can always surprise you and her princess relationship with her Daddy is still more important to Miss M than her love of dinosaurs).
From the Mum
Finally, there are a couple for the Mum’s out there. Is your husband or partner a sexy guy as well as a great dad? Or are you like me and sometimes feel that with everything else happening, you don’t tell him often enough what a good job he is doing? Then these might interest you.
This was actually the one that I chose to give Peter this year. He is a great Dad and I really do not tell him that enough. I know he knows it, but even the great ones deserve confirmation and praise every so often. Besides, as we are in this parenting thing together, my view is slightly different from the biased view of his little princess (who has him absolutely wrapped around her little finger).
Words of wisdom from one Dad to another
Finally, we have a quote from Will Smith (apparently from the Oprah magazine) about what he thinks being a father is all about. And a cute picture.
Happy Fathers’ Day
From our family to yours, I hope the ‘father’ in your life has a wonderful Fathers’ Day full of all the trimmings.
