There are certain things that I know are 100% fact. One of those things is that my children have a fabulous, no, SUPER father. I am lucky enough to be married to my best friend who is faithful, fun, and a wonderful support for me. On top of this all, he is also the best possible father I could have for my children. They love him, I love him, and this father’s day we are taking the opportunity to let him know just how super he really is!
The plan for Father’s day around here is breakfast in bed, a beautiful card made by my little guy, and a sneak-peak showing of what is sure to be, an awesome, no, SUPER movie! Check it out:
Man of Steel, the new Superman movie! Eeeek!!! I am so excited to see it, and to be seeing it early! More on the movie later. First the card.
Acrylic Paint–lots and lots of colors
Thick Paint Brush
One little boy
First of all, some prep work for mommy. Take the contact paper and cut out the super dad shape. Just cut out the outer pentagon shape, and then cut out the inside of the pentagon so it is an outline. Then, take the inside shape and use that to make the “D”. When finished cutting, carefully peal the back off the contact paper and stick it to the watercolor paper.
Next, grab you little boy (or girl) and head outside. Strip off the clothes, set up the paint, and let them go crazy!
Make sure that they cover the paper completely
Then, while still wet, mommy should carefully peal off the contact paper. Make sure to do this while it is still wet because acrylic paint tends to dry a little rubbery and it won’t peal off nicely once it is dry.
And there it is…as simple as that! Add an endearing message and hand to a deserving dad!
Now, I need to note that to my little guy, his dad really is super. My little Gus loves all things with wheels, and he idolizes all people that work with wheels. For this reason, every time that he watches dad mow the lawn, dad is elevated to the level of superhero! My husband mowed the lawn yesterday, so today we had to pull out the play lawn mower so that Gus could imitate his hero and mow the lawn himself.
So, there’s the card…but we will really be celebrating Father’s Day by attending a special pre-screening of the new Superman movie, Man of Steel on June 13th a 7pm! I am so excited! As a long time lover of all things superhero I can’t wait to see it, and what could be more perfect that seeing a Superman movie on the day that we are celebrating our super dad? Sounds simply SUPER to me!
Very very excited!
