Dear Dad Letter

I adore fill in the bank letters for kids. I did one around Mother’s Day and with Father’s Day around the corner, I did a version for Dads too, with help from my designer friend Liss from LissLetters.

There is a black and white and coloured version that are free to download and use. Just click the respective image for the PDF file or click the links below:

I’ve added some notes below which may be useful when it comes to filling in the blanks.

Writing the Letter

  • Draw a picture or add a photo to the frame
  • The line “You’re as ____ as a ______.” may need a little direction. Usually I start kids off with an adjective suggestion: Brave, Strong, Kind, Nice, Lovely and they tend to get the idea.
  • I don’t like to guide the kids too much on this because their own responses are absolutely adorable (and funny).

There is a mini book version of this too, and you find the printable here.

    […] Dear Dad Letter: I love the idea of having the kid(s) complete the blanks in this letter and I think this is something even the little kids could do.  Find the printable here […]

    What a cute idea! I’d love to do this with my students, but we’re in America and I know they will all question the spelling of the word favorite. Do you have or could you create an American version of the blank Father’s Day letter? I think students would love this.

    Thank you so much for sharing

    This is great! Is it possible to get one with UNCLE or GRANDPA. There are a lot of kids without Fathers. 🙁
