Printable Father's Day Interview Poster

Friday, June 10, 2011

For part of our Father's Day present this year, I wanted to include an interview about Dad from my two oldest children.  One of my favorite things that was saved from my childhood was a book where I answered questions about myself- the whole book was in an interview format.  I was probably 5-6 years old when I worked through it, and the answers are so funny!  It really gives you a snapshot into the child's mind and stage of development at that moment.

An interview form makes a great gift framed, and provides a lot of insight into the father-child relationship.  The form can be redone from year to year to see how things change over time.

I created this printable form for you to use in two different colors.  You can either print it out on paper and handwrite (or have your child handwrite, depending on their age) the answers directly onto the form, or you can use any simple graphic design software to add the text in the colors of your choice.  An example of a partially filled out sample form using that method is below.



Examples of graphic design software that would work range from Paint (which comes free with many computers) to Picnik (which is free to use online), or Photoshop.

Here are the blank forms for printing- just click to bring it up full-size (click on the photo again when it comes up on the new page to be sure you are zoomed in to 100% before printing):


Enjoy!

Hi! I know this is a super old post, but unjust thought I'd let you know that on Pinterest it has been reprinted from my original pin 452 times!! Eeeee! Exciting!! :)

Jillian @ Hi! It's Jilly said...

Oh, sheesh... That should say "I just" rather than "unjust" and "repinned", not "reprinted". Silly autocorrect...

Is it possible to get a 2013 printable? Also, I can seem to print this out as an entire page.
