Celebrate Father’s Day the Most Special, Creative Way! 

Father’s Day is a special day honoring fathers, fatherhood, and the influence of dads in our society. It was first celebrated in Washington on June 19, 1910, but it wasn’t until 1972 that President Woodrow Wilson turned it into an official national holiday in the U.S., alongside Mother’s Day. Although it is celebrated on a wide range of dates all over the world, many countries, including the U.S., observe this special day on the third Sunday of June.

It was said that this tradition wasn’t completely accepted by the public at first. However, over time, most people acknowledged the amazing role of fathers in their families and their kids’ lives. Let’s give our dads something unique and unforgettable on this special day!

Give Your Dad a Award!

Wondering what exactly you should put on the trophy?! Your dad is unique in his own way, so your message should come from your heart. But, here are some wonderful phrases that can get you started:

  • Best Dad Ever
  • Most Understanding Father-In-Law
  • Super Dad Award
  • Coolest Grandpa in the World

Remember that awards like these are not only reserved for birth fathers. You can give one to your grandpa, uncle, stepdad, or any other father figure you have in your life. It doesn’t matter if you are not so artistic and if it’s your first time exploring crafts like this one. It’s the thought that counts after all, and it’s the message that makes it even more special!
