Selfie Scrapbook:

If there’s one thing kids are good at, it’s taking selfies. So, harness that talent and help your kids make a fun scrapbook comprised of close-ups with Dad. It might be one of the few times you ask them to pick up their phones instead of putting them down.

This is one of my absolute favorite projects and I usually post this for Mother’s Day. But…dads love these too and tend to keep them forever! No matter what you and your kids create this Father’s Day, it’s sure to be unique and special. After all, it’s not just about making art, but making memories together!
