A simple father's day gift

Today the kids and I made a simple father's day gift. I modeled it after the gift Madeline made for me at school last month.

This morning I did an interview with Madeline and with Owen about there dad, asking them questions and writing down their answers just as they said them, without correcting grammar.

Here are the interviews:

Interview with Madeline, age 5
June 17, 2011

My dad’s eyes are green.

His hair is black.

His age is 10.

His favorite food is chicken parm.

He really loves me.

My dad’s favorite tv show or movie is Martha.

My dad’s favorite clothes to wear are red, white and black.

He cooks the best chicken parm.

I love my dad because he is nice!

Interview with Owen, age 3
June 17, 2011

My dad’s eyes are blue.

His hair is blue.

His age is 3.

His favorite food is chicken.

My dad really loves Madeline and me.

His favorite tv show or movie is Toy Story 3.

My dad’s favorite clothes to wear are Toy Story 3 clothes.

He cooks the best chicken parm.

I love my dad because me love him!


Afterwards I had them each draw a picture of Jon. When they wake up from nap we are going to glue the interview and their pictures each onto a sheet of construction paper and then staple the construction papers together to make a small book. I would prefer to put both papers onto one sheet of construction paper, but I don't have paper that large and I didn't preplan enough to go out and buy paper in advance.

I hope Jon enjoys these gifts as much I I enjoyed mine last month. I plan to do this same interview each year, that way we can see the changes as the kids grow.
