Day 13 of Countdown to Oliver: Finish an Art Project

In honor of Father’s Day, I decided to do a Father’s Day art project for day 13 of the countdown. It was more of a simple, amateur photography project, and although there are a couple other more intense art projects I’d like to finish, I thought this one was cute and appropriate for both Father’s Day and the topic of Oliver.

Fathers Day

For those of you who need a last minute Father’s Day idea, here’s how to do this:
1. Find any random piece of cardboard
2. Write in permanent marker “I [heart] daddy” on the piece of cardboard
3. Dress the little one(s) up and snap a photo with each of them holding the cardboard sign
4. Find a frame that will hold however many photos per child
5. Print and place photos in the frame for dad! Done!

Note: I obviously did something different with my pregnant belly since it can’t really hold a sign.
Alternative idea: If you have more than one little one, there’s also the option to use several pieces of cardboard and spread out the words “We [heart] daddy” so each child can hold a cardboard sign and you can snap one photo for a single picture frame.
