Aidon and Danae have recently learned to match letters like in puzzles and they enjoy showing off their new skill. We made one poster that said "Happy Father's Day" by masking with painters tape. See Mother's Day Masking. The second one we just masked three big squares. (Which by the way, I learned this painters tape in too big a square tears the card stock when attempted to peel it off.) It was okay though, I just cut out bigger letters to cover the torn spots. I drew an outline of the letters on the poster and put small bits of tape to stick the letters to. I would have rather used glue stick. Then I let Aidon stick the letters to his poster. He wasn't used to delicate paper letters so he tore one that stuck to his finger, but he happily matched the letters to the correct spots on the poster. I even made a video to show his proud daddy.
To top off all the decorations, I had Aidon and Danae color pictures of Daddy and themselves. I then taped these pictures to our hearts still left over from Valentines Day. (Daddy teases that by Christmas we should have one decoration from each holiday since I never take them down. What can I say? I like to get the most out of our hard work than just one day!)
Of course Daddy loved his artwork made with paint, crayons, and love!
