Need a last-minute Father's Day gift???
Why not spell it out!
We created this gift for my Dad from Little Man and his 2 cousins--my Dad's grandboys.
My nephew (the first grandson of the family) quickly began calling his Grandpa -"Pop", and the name stuck. All of the grandchildren in our family now call my Dad "Pop." For Father's Day this year, we decided to honor Pop by spelling his name. There are 3 grandchildren and 3 letters in the word "Pop." (Of course this would be easy to turn into a "DAD" project, too!) What are the chances?! We had to strike while the iron was hot!
This project was fun and easy!
I found these adorable boxy letters at JoAnn's. I only had to buy the "O" and "P." I decided to spray paint them red so they would be a happy, bright color. I wanted the letters to really pop!
We got together with cousins for a little photoshoot. Of course the hardest part about this entire project was trying to get these silly boys to look at the camera! Little Man wanted to play peek-a-boo with his "O" instead of hold it out.
After 2 takes and lots of photos, we settled on the final 3 pictures. I love how the boys' personalities really shine through. They each had their own little way of holding their given letter.
I found this frame at JoAnn's for 50% off (SCORE!), so I printed a 5x7 of each of the boys, and mounted them in the frame.
And that's it!
And now Little Man knows how to spell his very first word. He is now an expert at spelling out the word "POP."
A meaningful gift for a fantastic Dad AND Pop!
Do you do anything fun to honor Grandpa/Pop for Father's Day??
