        Celebrate Dad

        Talk with your children about their dad, or another special person in their lives. What does he like to do? What do they like to do together? What are his favorite foods, colors, or hobbies?

 Make this Father's Day extra special with a board game you make yourself—and then play with Dad!

        Step 1: Things You'll Need

        Collect the items from the materials list.

        Step 2: Draw Dad's Favorites

        Choose five of dad's favorite things. Write or draw pictures of those things on five note cards (one activity per card).

        Step 3: Spell It

        Next, turn the note cards over, with the drawn sides face-down. On the blank sides of the note cards, write the letters in the word "Daddy" (one letter per card).

        Step 4: Print It

        Print out the Mad About Dad game board and game pieces sheet.

        Step 5: Decorate for Dad

        Decorate the game board with Dad's favorite colors!

        Step 6: Make the Game Board

        Glue the decorated game board to an 8½ by 11-inch piece of cardboard or old cereal box. You may need to trim the cardboard with scissors to fit.

        Step 7: Color the Pieces

        Color the remaining game pieces and cut them out.

        Step 8: Attach the Instructions

        With a bit of glue, attach the game instructions to an envelope. The envelope will also be used to store the game pieces.

        Play It!

        Let the glue dry, then give it to Dad as a gift. You will have hours of fun playing together!
