Father's Day Gift Crafts
by Brenda Arnold
Footprint Craft & Poem: This is a very popular and special craft to make for Dad. Just trace your child's footprints on construction paper and cut out. Then either write on the footprint, or on paper the following poem:

"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."
