My husbands birthday is Monday the 23rd. I want to make something from the kids for him our kids are 16months (son) and 2 weeks (daughter). I was thinking something with handprints/footprints, but not really sure what to do! Any ideas?? TIA!

You could get a plaster keepsake kit and do a hand/foot print for him... or simply make a card or picture with finger paint hand and foot prints on it...


It's amazing how people don't hold themselves to the standards they set for others.

maybe a shirt:  get a white t-shirt or a light colored one.....and have them put their handprints or footprints or both on there and put their name in the middle of them...and write Daddy's little angels or something to that effect....Maybe try it on a hat/cap if he wears those...GOOD LUCK!

A picture of him and your kids with their footprint for the frame.

Get him a pack of hankies and do hand and foot prints on them

Get him a coffe mug that you can put the kids hand and foot prints on

This may be too late, and I'm  not sure if you've seen this yet, but one of my favorite blogs posted an offer of free photo cards.

You can put in photos of your kids, and if you put in the promo code: new baby, you'll get 50 free cards!  I think it'd make a cute gift!

My sons first christmas I made my husband a book with a bunch of pictures of them together and added a letter from him in the front.

I am planning on doing this for my husbands birthday.

You could take a picture with each child, with a letter and one with both of them, with a letter.

Hobby Lobby/Michael's has the letters and Target/Walmart have the frames.

I think it is a great idea, that would be loved for years!

Hope that helps!
