Dad, You Rock
Dad, You Rock by Giggles Galore. I say things or people Rock all.the.time. Seriously, it’s one of my go to phrases…I love the idea of giving Dad a box of rocks with reasons why he ROCKS written in kid script on them. Giggles Galore shares how she made this sweet, ROCKin’ gift with her kiddos for their dad.
From Giggles Galore:
We think our dad ROCKS and this year the kids and I decided to give him a special Father’s Day Gift he can treasure. Every time we go for a walk my kids are always collecting rocks and I usually end up finding a few stowaways when I do laundry, so it seemed fitting that we use some of the rocks to make a gift for dad. Plus, I’ve been looking for a reason to try the new DecoArt Decou-Page Paper.
This is an easy gift that you can personalize to show dad just how much you appreciate him and easy an easy gift the kids will love helping with.
You’ll need the following supplies to make your “Day You Rock” Father’s Day Gift.
- Wooden Treasure Box
- Americana DecoArt Chalky Finish Paint in Relic
- Americana DecoArt Acrylic Paint in variety of colors
- Americana DecoArt Decou-Page Ikat Paper and Gold Foil
- Americana Decou-Page in Matte finish
- Rocks (smooth, flat rocks work best)
- Paint Brushes
- Permanent Marker
- Dad You Rock printable Tags – download here

We also used the DecoArt Decou-Page paper to decorate a few of our rocks. Those are my favorite, aren’t they pretty!
I asked the kids to tell me why they think their dad rocks, then we used a permanent marker to write it on the painted rocks. Some of them were funny like my son’s rock that said “Because you are a boy just like me!” and others were sweet like my daughter’s rock that said “You care so much about making us happy!” Each kid signed the back of their rock so dad would know who those sweet sentiments were from.
I made some simple Dad Rocks Father’s Day tags for our gift. Of course I’m sharing them with you too and even included some that say Grandpa and Pop. Download the free tags here.
We put the rocks in the treasure chest and tied it up with twine and one of printable tags. Now we have a sweet and thoughtful gift to give to our dad who totally ROCKS!
