Father’s Day Booklet Children’s Craft

Father's Day Booklet Children's CraftI had a lot of fun putting this cute little booklet together. I think your children will really enjoy writing down some memories and thoughts about their dads. The first part of the booklet is intended for your child to record their own responses about their father, the second portion is set up for your child to be able to spend some one-on-one time interviewing their dad to find out his response to some fun questions. It would be a neat activity for children of all ages. You can help your younger children fill it out if need be. I am sure they would have some cute answers.

The instructions:

Father's Day Booklet- cut pagesStart by printing out the booklet pages from the link above. Cut all the pages in half, keeping them in order. A paper cutter makes it very simple to cut evenly right down the middle of the page.

Father's Day Booklet- glueCut the first part, the cover of the booklet, into a smaller square. Fold the cardstock in half and use a glue stick to glue the title page onto the cover of the booklet.

Father's Day Booklet- trim pagesAlign the booklet’s inside pages by tapping the stack of the pages on a flat surface. You will want to have the side that will be seen in the finished booklet facing  downward to get an even line in the finished product. Trim about 1/8″ off the binding side of the pages and insert the pages into the cardstock cover.

Father's Day Booklet- hole punch edgesUse a hole punch to mark 6 evenly spaced holes down the left side of the cardstock cover. The stack was too thick for me to punch holes all the way through, but by attempting to do so, I then had a partial hole punch opening to follow to make sure all the holes line up correctly in the end. Pull the pages out and finish punching the holes all the way through.

Father's Day Booklet- finished coverCut a piece of twine about 11 or 12″ long. Start by making a double knot at the top hole and weaving in and out until you reach the bottom. Finish with another double knot and cut off any excess twine. There you have it! Now you are ready to have your children fill out the first few pages with questions about their dads. There is a page that will tell you when it is time to reserve the remaining questions for some one on one time with dad. I hope they enjoy it! Happy Father’s Day!
