Day Out With Daddy Jar – Valentine’s Day Gift for Dad

Day Out With Daddy Valentines Day GiftValentine’s Day is coming up, and I always find it hard to find something special for my husband. There are only so many chocolate tool boxes and gummy golf clubs one man can stomach. This year I wanted to do something extra special for him.

He works his tail off, and because of that he doesn’t get to spend a ton of time with Avery. I thought it would be nice to create a Day Out With Daddy Jar for him! When he has a free day, he can pull a slip from the jar, and take Avery on a little adventure!

What You’ll Need:

  • A Jar (I chose a red one for Valentine’s Day)
  • Glue
  • Slips of paper to write your Day Out ideas on
  • Day Out With Daddy graphic-You can print your own HERE
  • Ribbon
  • Gift Cards (optional)

Supplies for Jar ProjectIt’s very simple. First you’ll print and cut out the heart graphic. Using glue, apply it to the jar and let it dry.

    This is such a creative and great idea, not to mention easy on the wallet. I *love* the ideas that you put in the jar, too. I wish I could steal 1% of your creativity… do you think we can work something out? 😉
