I know that our site is called the Mommy's Guide, but that does not mean we don't hold fathers on an equal level.
This Father's Day, let your father, or husband, know you care. Do a little something extra, fry up some bacon, let him watch the game (is there a game on?) in peace, or even let him have the remote for once!
There are some great crafts for the kiddies to do on NickJR.com. Like a Father's Day Yo Gabba Gabba pop-up card, Dora the Explorer coloring sheets and more. Help your little one create something they love to show how much they love their daddy. It is a sight to see their faces light up when they give him something that they are really proud of!
Have a happy and healthy Father's Day everyone, from us here at the Mommy's Guide.
