My kids have been brimming with excitement – working on this business card holder to give my husband for Father’s Day. Our kids are currently crazy about Legos™. We’ve even competed (and won – woo hoo!) in a few brick building challenges that were insanely intense.
He has received quite a range of gifts over the years from what???! to yum to that’s cool! But no matter what gift he opens he always makes them feel like it’s the best gift EVER.
When they were little I remember them taping some licorice to a piece of paper in the shape of a tie. One year they all put their painted hand prints on a t-shirt that said “Best Dad Hands Down”. I think his favorite is when we make him a sweet that involves chocolates, pecans and caramel. We can never go wrong with a sweet.
This year’s gift is definitely going to get the that’s cool! title.
Lego Classic Creative Bricks #10692 $13.98
We made the card holder with this box of Lego Classic bricks. My daughters created the shape of the holder. And my sons built the cool car and airplane for the top.
Isn’t it awesome?!!! We know he’ll love it. We absolutely love it. It’s so colorful and screams fun and guy and cool all at once. We were ooing and awwing over it once it came together.
And I created fun “business cards” for him to put in the holder. Below is a template for the business cards, so you can print them.
You and your kids can use these cards to write special notes for him and leave them in the card holder.
It’s really easy to make. In the directions, every step is photographed and explained.
We can’t wait to see his surprise when he unwraps it on Father’s Day. And one of these days, I think we’ll catch him silently zooming the car around on his desk – during a long phone call. How could he resist?
If I know him, he’ll keep our cards in it. But that’s OK. Father’s Day is about making sure he knows how much we love, appreciate, and think of him.
See you at Walmart!
