This DIY Father's Day gift from kids contains 30 inexpensive ideas. The FREE Father's Day Printable include 30 inexpensive ideas for Dad in a “Book of Experiences to Celebrate Time with Dad”. There are 30 words, all verbs, all focused on “doing” rather than “spending”. These words are included on each page of the Book of Experiences. Follow along day by day, or randomly choose your experience.
These gifts are not gifts of material but are gifts of time, of experience, and of presence. I purposely left the verbs open ended so that you may complete the phrase in any way that works for your family. You can make it as specific or as general as you wish.
“People never learn anything by being told, they have to find out for themselves.” ~ Paulo Coelho
DIY Father's Day Gifts from Kids

Materials & Approach
I brainstormed with my oldest son about the things he likes TO DO with his Dad. I made a list into which I created the DIY Experiences Book Printable to print out for my husband on Father's Day. Here is why you can do:
- Print the DIY Book of Experiences Coupon Book Celebrating Dad FREE PRINTABLE on card stock
- Cut & Laminate (the latter is optional)
- Paper hole punch a small hole in the upper lefthand corner of each card
- Connect laminated cards with a book ring
