Looking for a fun Father's Day idea? One that doesn't involve a lot of time and effort? But one that is exceedingly meaningful? Then look no further.
I get ideas for my blog from many sources--often from friends posting celebrations on Facebook or Instagram. This one came from Instagram. I have a dear childhood friend--for goodness' sake, we've been friends for over 60 years! So of course I've come to know her children and grandchildren. My friend has a zest for new adventures, never meets a stranger, and is always up for celebrating life! And her children and grandchildren got that gene. So when I saw this idea posted by her granddaughter, I knew I had to share it on my blog. And this one's for ANYONE--children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, young and old, and everyone in between. It involves sweet memories, balloons, daddies, granddads, and balloons--did I say that already?
Here--I'll let Lizzy tell you:
I know everyone thinks they have the coolest dad, and I’m sure they do, but none compare to mine! A couple of years ago my siblings and I decided we wanted to do something unique for our dad for Father’s Day. We did some brainstorming and came up with this balloon idea! My brother, sister and I all came up with 5-10 memories and quotes about our dad. We put them inside the balloons and blew them up! We surprised him with a room full of balloons, We gathered around while he popped and read the contents. My dad still to this day talks about this Father’s Day, and how much he enjoyed popping the balloons and reading the memories with all of us.
Now come on, readers! Isn't that the cutest idea ever? And I'm sure they wrote down memories and thoughts that they might not otherwise have shared with their dad. I had to write about it in my blog.
I'm sure you get the idea. Get together with those kids or grandkids and get started. You've got time before Father's Day. And save this idea. You can use it for Mother's Day too, and anyone's birthday.
