Big and Tall
Large and small
Fathers everywhere
Who love and care.

On Father's Day
Remember to say,
"I love you so
I hope you know
You pass the test
You are the best."

~By Mrs. Alphabet

Give Him a Day

What shall you give to one small boy?
A glamorous game, a tinseled toy?
A Boy Scout knife, a puzzle pack?
A train that runs on some cruising track?
A picture book, a real live pet?
No, there's plenty of time for such things yet
Give him a day for his very own.
Just one small boy and his Dad alone.
A walk in the wood, a romp in the park;
A fishing trip from dawn to dark.
Give him the gift that only you can.
The companionship of his "old man."
Games are outgrown and toys decay,
But he'll never forget
If you give him a day!

There was a man who had a child
And Daddy was his name-o,
And Daddy was his name-o.

My Daddy Helps Me - sung to "My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean"

You help me feel so much better.

Father's Day

On Father's Day I try to see
How happy I can make Dad be;
I try to be just extra good;
And do each small thing as I should.

I'm extra helpful, thoughtful too,
And quick to see things I should do.
Then Dad grins, happy as can be
As he sits there and watches me.

So I think it would be fun
To make each day a happy one-
Have Father's Day not once a year,
But every day to hold it dear!!!!

by Grayce Krogh Boller

What Is A Dad?

A Dad is a person
who is loving and kind,
And often he knows
what you have on your mind.
He's someone who listens,
suggests, and defends ~
A dad can be one
of your very best friends!
He's proud of your triumphs,
but when things go wrong,
A dad can be patient
and helpful and strong
In all that you do,
a dad's love plays a part ~
There's always a place for him
deep in your heart ~
And each year that passes,
you're even more glad,
More grateful and proud
just to call him your dad!
Thank you, Dad...
for listening and caring,
for giving and sharing,
but, especially, for just being you!
Happy Father's Day
With Love,

Daddy's Steps

When Daddy walks along the street
And hurries home to me,
He takes the quickest, longest steps
That ever I did see.
But when I go to walk with him,
He acts quite differently,
And takes the slowest, shortest ones
To keep in step with me.

by Margaret Brown Elms

My Father

When I was:

Four years old: My daddy can do anything.
Five years old: My daddy knows a whole lot.
Six years old: My dad is smarter than your dad.
Eight years old: My dad doesn't know exactly everything.
Ten years old: In the olden days, when my dad grew up, things were sure different.
Twelve years old: Oh, well, naturally, Dad doesn't know anything about that. He is too old to remember his childhood.
Fourteen years old: Don't pay any attention to my dad. He is so old-fashioned.
Twenty-one years old: Him? My Lord, he's hopelessly out of date.
Twenty-five years old: Dad knows about it, but then he should, because he has been around so long.
Thirty years old: Maybe we should ask Dad what he thinks. After all, he's had a lot of experience.
Thirty-five years old: I'm not doing a single thing until I talk to Dad.
Forty years old: I wonder how Dad would have handled it. He was so wise.
Fifty years old: I'd give anything if Dad were here now so I could talk this over with him. Too bad I didn't appreciate how smart he was. I could have learned a lot from him.

Stinky Feet and Stinky Toes

Stinky feet and stinky toes
make me gotta hold my nose.
Daddy's great and Daddy knows
my love for him just grows and grows.
I like that.

My daddy loves my stinky toes,
He tickles them with his nose.
My daddy loves my smelly feet,
He says they smell just like a rose.
My daddy can remember me,
When he sniffs my feet and toes.

If all these Kisses aren't enough,
If all these hugs don't work their charm,
I have two arms to help keep you warm.
If this gift doesn't show how much I care,
I have REAL hugs & kisses to share!

Father - by Perri Gregg

A father is someone
who loves you very much,
he is the one who has the magic touch.

when someone asks "Whos that guy?"
You say, "My dad ! with a proud glimpse
in your eye.

A father is good at teaching you sports,
his favorite part of the Olympics is when
they light the torch.
A father always buys you candy with
a creamy touch,
A father is someone who loves you
very much!

This poem was pasted onto a piece of construction paper, with the child's picture also pasted onto the construction paper. Then it was trimmed with a ric-rac border.
