Do you  have young children in the home who would love to give their dad a fun gift for Father’s Day? Play a special game of “Hide and Seek” with him! The following idea comes from Emily Dockery who wrote a post on the Lifeway site*.

Emily wrote, “Making dad feel special doesn’t have to cost anything.  Grab a pen and a pad of paper, then begin listing things you like and appreciate about your dad.  Write several notes telling Dad why you admire him and why you are glad he’s your dad.

Write as many as you want.  When you’re done, hide the notes around the house: in his briefcase, in his favorite chair, on the bathroom mirror—anywhere where your dad will find them.  Let him discover your notes throughout the day, or even through the entire week.”

What a fun way to care for dads!

For adult children wishing to honor their fathers, you could also list the things you like and appreciate about your Dad. Then, use the list to send your Dad a note each month listing one of the reasons you appreciate him! You could even add a shared experience (including a picture) which illustrates that valued characteristic.
