Father’s Day writing prompts
This week, let’s celebrate Dad! With these engaging Father’s Day writing prompts, kids will jump at the chance to design a robotic assistant, craft a special award, plan a dream date with Dad, or make a Father’s Day card.
1. Father’s Little Helper
For a Father’s Day gift, you’re debating between giving your dad a robot that does outside chores or one that fixes broken things around the house. Which one do you think he’d rather have? Describe five chores this new robot will perform. Get a free printable page with this prompt here.
2. That’s My Dad!
Make a greeting card listing 10 reasons your dad is the greatest father in the world. Illustrate your creation with photos, clipart, or drawings. Seal it in an envelope and present it to him on Father’s Day.
3. Dad’s Dream Day
If you could surprise your dad with a special day, what would the two of you do together? Would you go fishing, hiking, or sky diving? Visit an amusement park or air museum? Race go-karts, play miniature golf, or try bungee jumping? Read and watch movies together? Think of something he would really love to do, and describe your ideal day. Don’t forget to include the pizza, burgers, or ice cream!
4. Best Man
Using a blank sheet of paper and colored pencils or markers, design an award to give your dad for Father’s Day. Include a motto or slogan such as: Superhero to one wife and four kids since 1998 or Best Pancake Maker and Paper Airplane Flyer. For added fun, fill in and print an “official” certificate for free from 123Certificates.com.
Note: Be smart! Always use the Internet with parent supervision.
