Download this free set of printable Father’s Day Coloring Pages and help your little ones make a handmade Father’s Day gift that dad is sure to treasure!
Believe it or not, but Father’s Day is just around the corner and there’s no time like the present to get ready with this set of free printable Father’s Day Coloring Pages.
Although, our youngest is 22, we do have grandchildren and we love to help them make gifts for their mom and dad. In fact, our soon-to-be four year old twin granddaughters are quite the creative little ladies. I can’t wait to print these coloring pages out for them to complete for their dad for Father’s Day!
Download Father’s Day Coloring Pages
The inspiration for this set of printable Father’s Day coloring pages came from LZ at The Summery Umbrella. I used her Always My Dad Forever My Friend PNG (image) file. This file was hand-drawn by LZ! She is quite the artist and I’m quite envious of her artistic ability.
>>> Anyway, you’ll find the tutorial and the free download over on The Summery Umbrella blog.
Part 1 – The Granddaughters
Well, this is the blog post that almost wasn’t. It’s quite a funny (not so funny) story. I had the best of intentions, but life had other plans – as it often does.
I had hoped to get my little granddaughters over to the house to work on this project with me. Then I could photograph their artwork and share with you all the whole process. I just knew these Father’s Day Color Pages would turn out to be little works of art that our son would cherish for years to come.
At the last moment, their mom got sick and they ended up cancelling our little playday together. Okay, I can handle that. We’ll just reschedule, right? I’m still waiting.
Part 2 – Zoey, Milk & My Laptop
Then, I decided to just print out the Father’s Day coloring pages and have some of the students at my school complete the pages. But, as I was putting the finishing touches on some of the layout of the pages, my dog Zoey decides she needs some attention.
(That’s Zoey laying down in the front. Remo in the back and our grandson Jordan aka the best grandson ever.)
Zoey can be so gentle. She comes up to me and gives the gentlest nudges with her nose, typically followed by a soft whine or whimper. Then she escalates. On this particular night, she skipped the gentle nudge.
Sitting on the couch with my laptop on my lap, with a small cup of milk sitting on the end table beside the couch, I picked up the cup of milk and took a sip. As I was attempting to set the cup back down, Zoey comes around behind the couch and “nudges” my elbow sending my cup of milk into the screen of my laptop. Milk spews down the front of the screen and onto the keyboard.
Of course, I quickly got up and wiped off the milk and placed my laptop upside down on a towel on the table. I wasn’t sure if any of the milk got down into the laptop or keyboard as it’s sort of sealed. The next day, I tried to use my laptop and it was pretty much unresponsive.
So, we have no computers at home right now that are working. My husband’s laptop is dying and randomly shuts down, so he’s been sharing my laptop. We sent my laptop off to be repaired. We’re keeping our fingers crossed.
A Series of Unfortunate Events
It’s not really a funny story. Just a series of unfortunate events. But, isn’t that exactly how life happens? If making mistakes is a sign that you’re alive, well, I’m here to tell you that I am alive and well!
I know it’s simply because I’m so busy and trying to do too many things at once, but over the past few weeks, I’ve been on a roll at making mistakes. Let’s hope this comes to an end soon!
I work full-time as an accounting clerk in a local high school and the beginning and end of the school year are the busiest times for me. There seems to be 1,000 things going on, deadlines to meet and I’m simply trying to juggle it all and get it all done on time. You’d think I’d know by now to let some things go. I just find it very hard to not get things done on time. And by on time, I really mean early.
Okay, please visit The Summery Umbrella to download this free set of printable Father’s Day Coloring Pages. I’m just sure that it will turn in to a treasured little gift for Dad.
