The special bond of dads and sons
Have you ever seen a man more proud than the day he finds out he is having a son?
We have two beautiful baby girls but the day my husband learned he was going to have a little boy to hunt and fish with him- well, that’s a moment almost every dad secretly (or not-so-secretly) wishes for. It fills Dad’s heart to think of having someone to watch football with, take golfing, throw around a ball in the yard, and teach everything he knows.
Yes, I know girls can do all of this too- and they do- but this poem is about dads and sons <3
Even Dad noticed his boy grows up too fast…
One day dad has a brand new bouncing baby boy but with the blink of an eye, that baby is a full-grown man meeting dad for a beer to watch the game or meet on the golf course Saturday morning.
He wants to keep his little boy little for as long as he possibly can. While I wish I could stop time and let Mom and Dad both enjoy their kids for a little longer, all I can offer is a way to create a keepsake of their sweet little hands while they still fit easily on a piece of paper <3
This free printable poem is a great resource for teachers to use as a free printable Father’s Day poem to use in the classroom! (It also pairs perfectly with the Mother’s Day fingerprint poem!)
What gift do you get the dad who has everything?
A gift from the heart, of course!
While there is still time, give dad the perfect gift for Father’s Day, a way to remember his son as the perfect little boy is now!

Tips for using the DIY fingerprint poem to dad from son:
– Printing on card stock makes for a more sturdy keepsake
– The poem is black and white to make for easy printing. Have the kids add some coloring or stickers to make it their own!
– You may want to print more than one copy in case the child has difficulty getting a good print on the first try
– Get a “cleaner” (less smudged) print by helping the child press straight down, holding a few seconds, then raising the hand straight up
– The space at the bottom should easily fit a handprint. Use a lighter colored paint in case the prints go over the wording it will still be readable. (And it looks super cute!)
– Instead of dipping their hands in paint, use a larger brush to apply the paint to the child’s hands (It’s much less messy!)
– Have lots of paper towels ready to keep the mess to a minimum
-Allow to dry completely then add to a frame so dad can keep it forever!
It is amazing to see how much these handprints change from year to year. Squeeze those babies while you can!
I hope this Fingerprint poem to dad from son warms Dad’s heart on his special day!
