It was my dad's birthday last week and funds are a little tight around here so I wanted the boys to make something special for my dad. I found this on Pinterest for a fathers day gift and thought this would be perfect for my dad. Cole when he first started to talk started calling my dad "Bapa" we have no clue where this came from (my mom he named Monnie, I guess it was like mommy so he went with it). So with a little letter switching I made this Father's Day Book into a Bapa Book for my dad's birthday. You can always take her design and go with dad (since father's day will be here sooner then you know it, plus it lands on my birthday this year ... whoo hoo).
My "Bapa" Version
Her's said Dad with a D
What you Need:
Card Stock Paper (I used Brown, Green & Blue)
Ribbon (I used Green & Blue)
NOW she printed a D and then traced onto Card Stock and cut it out. I'm a little on the lazy and time crunch side so I went to the Cricket used the largest setting typed a B and then went one size down and did another B. I then went to a size or two down to type in the word Bapa. I then cut down the brown card stock to make a smaller book, then I cut down some white paper and folded it in half to be like book pages. I put the brown on top to be the cover and back of the book. I then took my glue stick and added the big B and added a smaller B on top of it. I then added Bapa at the bottom. I then added two holes with my hole punch. I added some ribbon and tied it threw each hole. I did two colors to give it a little something extra (you can use only one if you want). And hey it reminded me SeaHawks football team .. brown for the ball and Green and Blue for the team colors ... ok I'm reaching here but you could do it in team colors :).
When book is complete let the kids color and add notes on the white pages. A book made especially for them from the kids.
