Manliest Father’s Day Ever:
Send Him on a Scavenger Hunt

There’s one other little gift I thought I’d share with you as a sure-fire grin-getter.

I’ve created 18 little quotable cards for you to print, cut out (cardstock works best), and let the kids hide around the house for him to find. You can even write little “clues” on the back to send him on a Father’s Day scavenger hunt surprise! Click on the button below to download and print them off!

Why is that a direct link and not behind a give-me-your-email wall? Because I don’t want to bully you into a friendship.

If you like the free download, why not subscribe to my weekly email and get a free copy of 101 Ways to Be an Awesome Mom?

Or, if you’re grateful, but not interested in subscribing, can you share this article with your social media pals? That works too!

From one working mother to another, thanks!

A Final Father’s Day Word from Ron

Whatever you end up doing for your manliest Father’s Day ever, I’m sure it will be epic and full of  memories.

So whether you rough it in the wild or camp out in the living room, cook up a fancy meal or order a pizza, buy him a gift or make him a card…give him a big smooch and let him know you love and respect him. 

Because as Ron says, “That’s what you do when you care about someone.  You support ‘em…win, lose or draw.”

Happy Father’s Day!
