Although the traditional view considers the mother to be the nurturer and the father to be the provider, the role of a father in the life of a child is no less than that of a mother. A father provides his child with emotional, physical, financial and social support.
With the changing social and family structure, the role of father has become even more important. The changing times has made it possible for fathers to involve themselves more than ever in the upbringing of their children, thus increasing their contribution.
Father’s Day is celebrated to honour fathers for everything they do for their children. It provides children with an opportunity to express their love for their fathers, and acknowledge their importance.
Over the years, the idea of celebrating a day dedicated exclusively to fathers has spread across the globe. Today, it’s celebrated in almost all the countries of the world. Although the style of celebrating Father’s Day differs across cultures, giving gifts to fathers is a common custom.
With a variety of gift items being available on the market nowadays, children can buy whatever they wish to give to their fathers. But a gift made by a child with his own hands is special. It shows how much a child loves and cares for her father.
To help your child make a special gift for her father, we have compiled a ClipBook of easy-to-make Father’s Day gifts. Flip through the pages of our ClipBook to give her some great ideas.
