You know, your Dad put a lot of time into raising you, and he spent many hours making a living so he could support you. He probably convinced your Mom to let you get a dog when you were little. Maybe he taught you how to ride a bike, or how to drive or other important life skills. Maybe he built you a cool playhouse, or, even cooler, maybe he paid for your college tuition.
Dads are awesome. They love us and support us, and, when we were little, helped us hide the broken pieces of whatever it is we broke before Mom got home. That’s a special relationship – partners in crime.
Show your Dad that you care with one (or more) of these cool DIY Father’s Day gifts!
