Dad’s Doodle Pad

Dad Doodle Pad

I just have to share this simple Father’s Day gift that my wonderful friend Stephanie introduced me to.  We have our Kinders do it every year, but it could work for just about anyone who can draw!

Step One:  Have your child draw a picture with dad using black marker.  Draw the picture on a regular piece of paper.

Step Two: Using a copy machine or your printer, shrink the picture to 30%.

Happy Father’s Day!
