Father’s Day craft – reflection art

This year turned out particularly fruitful for our Father’s Day projects. This one my kids enjoyed so much, that we did it three times: once for my niece’s dance performance congratulations-card from the boys, once for a New Year commemorative plaque, and now – for a Dad’s Big Day surprise!
