For this activity, my partner and I brought several cookbooks and had the girls look through them and write out recipes on index cards that they would like to try. We encouraged them to start their own recipe box or book that they could add to as they grew up.
We encouraged them to use the recipes they selected to plan, shop for and prepare a meal for their father on Father's Day. We told them to try to pick recipes that would be easy for them to prepare on their own or with just a little help from Mom. For those girls that do not have a father in their home to celebrate Father's Day with, we suggested that they prepare this meal for their family.
