Frame Options…

  • Wood Grain Frame – This frame is super simple and so incredibly budget friendly! You can seriously throw this craft together for around $6 with these frames. Say what?!
  • Simple White Frame– A little more pricey than the above frames, but these frames supply such a super classic look! Can’t really go wrong with a white frame like this!
  • Linear Frames – This one has a classic look Dad will love. Plus, it comes in multiple colors!
  • Unfinished Scallop Frame – These are a great option if you have a little extra time on your hands! Your kids can paint their own frame for daddy, or you can finish them with stain to match your home decor. Plus, they definitely won’t hurt the wallet!
  • Mini Clip Frame – This is a super cute option if dad or grandpa have limited space! These adorable clip frames are perfect for creating a mini version with wallet sized photos! So cute, you guys!!

Instructions

  1. First, you will need to do a little prep work. Pick up 3 photo frames.
  2. Second, cut your card stock down to size so that it will fit into the photo frames easily.
    *NOTE: I used 3 – 3.5 x 5 photo frames when I did this with my kids a few years back.
  3. Using your markers, write the words WE ♡ DAD, writing one word on each piece of card stock.
    *TIP: If your children are older, encourage them to this part themselves & get creative with it!
  4.  Now for the best part, plan a super quick photo shoot! Get some shots of your kids individually holding their frame.
  5. Once all photos have been taken, print the pictures and put them straight into the same picture frame!

I told you this was easy, right?! Wasn’t even kidding!

My husband absolutely loved this gift! A picture of his kids holding the same frame their picture was in… pretty cool!

Have more (or less) than three kids? Try some of these simple solutions!

  • Simply add extra words to the mix – try something like We love Dad tons (perfect for 4 kids)
  • Mix up the wording completely – try other fun dad related sayings such as Dad Rocks! (perfect for 2 kids)
  • Spell it out instead – Try spelling the word daddy or grandpa, putting one letter in each frame instead of doing a phrase! (perfect for 5+ kids!)

Only have one child? Easy Peasy.

  • Keep it simple – use the simple phrase I ♡ DAD all in a single frame. Pick a larger frame and make it stand out. 
  • Make it funny –  using the phrase Just Like Dad, take multiple photos of your child in different poses or making silly faces.
