Try a cut-and-paste date
Show your daughter that “There’s No One Like You!” Grab a stack of old magazines, a computer and printer, scissors and glue sticks, a sheet of poster board and markers. Your daughter is a unique masterpiece, created by God. Today you will create your own work of art to celebrate your one-of-a-kind girl!
Use your computer’s word processing software to spell out “All About (your daughter’s name).” Have your daughter choose her favorite lettering and color for the title. Cut it out and glue it across the top of the poster board. Together, page through old magazines or search the Internet to find pictures of your daughter’s interests and favorite things – sports, colors, foods, stores, movies, animals, fashions, etc. Cut out or print the pictures and paste them onto the poster board.
When you’re finished cutting and pasting, use markers to embellish the poster. Write down words that describe the qualities of your daughter’s heart and personality (funny, helpful, generous, friendly, confident, honest, etc.).
Take some time to study the finished poster together. Ask specific questions about the pictures she chose, such as, “What do you like best about that animal?” or, “What was your favorite part of that movie?” This is a great opportunity to get to know her better.
Find a place on your daughter’s bedroom door or wall to display the poster, to celebrate what a unique and special girl she is.
