"DIY it" Gift

Shadow puppet dog

What better way to make the playful dad beam than with a shadow puppet show put on in his honor? A dark room, a flashlight and your hands are all that is needed, but kids can incorporate props, music and paper cutouts to make it more intricate. There are many free online tutorials for making different shadow puppet shapes. 

If shadow puppets are too intricate, A sock puppet show or even a show starring favorite stuffed animals are always an option as well.
