What stories from our family’s past can help our sons become better fathers? What exemplary fathers do you have in your family tree? Our purpose is to strengthen children with stories from the past by creating a fun project. Hopefully families and can use our projects to celebrate father’s day, learn about the dads in their family tree, and strengthen bonds between generations. Here are some project ideas to post about:
Unique interview question lists for fathers and grandfathers
Stories from our family history about being a dad
Teaching children about fatherhood using family history stories
Family activities that teach about and honor the fathers in our family tree
Lesson plans for teachers, families, youth groups to use that teach about fatherhood & family history
Father’s Day card ideas and printables
Father’s Day gift ideas
How to Join
Submit your photo and link by June 12. Here are the steps to join:
1. Create a post and pinterest type image (tall rectangle about 735 x 1102 pixels) to share in the link up. (We’ve used square in the past but thought this might be easier to share our ideas on pinterest. I use canva.com to make my images – it’s fun and free! Try it! Sometimes, when I’m ambitious, I try to do two images for pinterest type posts: a blog title/facebook image for the top of my blog post and a pinterest image that I put at the bottom of the post. If you don’t have time, any old image will do!)
2. Join this google photo album: June Link up Google Photos Album
