Gift ideas that toddlers can make for their daddy?

I'm trying to think of something I can have my 2 1/2 year olds make for their daddy for Christmas. I'd like to add some sweet poem about daddies to whatever we make, but I'm having a hard time coming up with anything. I'm so not creative! Any ideas?

  • hand prints with finger paint, then frame it... or trace their hands, let them color it and add the poem. my daughter brought home from preschool a folded paper, at the bottom was a flower pot, at the top was the flower, a long stem had the poem written on it, the leaves had different sayings, like i love you or just artwork from her.

  • My daughter made a picture frame for my dad, I just bought a picture frame from the store and foam stickers, spelled out Grandpa and Me with the stickers and let her decorate the rest with foamies. It turned out really cute.

  • Footprint with this poem:
    Footprints
    "Walk a little slower Daddy," said a child so small.
    "I'm following in your footsteps and I don't want to fall.
    Sometimes your steps are very fast.
    Sometimes they're hard to see;
    So walk a little slower, Daddy,
    For you are leading me.

    Someday when I'm all grown up,
    You're what I want to be;
    Then I will have a little child
    Who'll want to follow me.

    And I would want to lead just right,
    And know that I was true;
    So, walk a little slower, Daddy,
    For I must follow you."

    I don't know the authors name.
