Sharing is caring!

Everyone wants to find the perfect Father’s Day gift– appreciated, but not too expensive or labor intensive. It can also be tricky to strike a balance between thoughtful and cheesy. This Father’s Day Questionnaire Printable checks all the boxes. It’s easy, quick, cheap (the ink probably costs… 5 cents? I don’t know), and it makes an adorable Father’s Day Gift from kids.

Why are kid questionnaires such great gifts?

I’ve done several versions of these kid questionnaires over the years for parents, grandparents, teachers, etc. — depending on the occasion (Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Teacher Appreciation Week). What I love about these is they’re homemade, they’re from the heart, and they never get old.

If all three of my kids gave me these several times per year, they’d still be enjoyable gifts because kids change and mature so quickly. Their answers vary widely each time and it’s so fun to see their responses and how they progress over time.

Once the holiday is over, I like to save the questionnaires so I can look at them from year-to-year for each kid and see how their answers have evolved (as well as their drawing skills). You can laminate them (this is the super easy laminator I have and love) or just put them in page-protectors in a binder (or, if you’re really anti-stuff, you can take a picture of them and toss them after a few months).

Can you really do a Father’s Day questionnaire for babies or toddlers?

YES! If your child is too young to answer for themselves, my favorite thing to do is have their siblings try to answer on their behalf. These responses are often hilarious-but-true. If you only have one child, and he/she is too little to answer, then you can fill in the blanks for them. It makes for a sweet and thoughtful gift.

There’s a space in the printable for a picture of the child and their father. If they’re too young to draw at all, cut and paste an actual photo. However, if your child is even remotely old enough to draw a picture of them and their father, have them draw it. Seeing the hilarious portrait is at least as fun as the answers to the questionnaire.

How to download your Father’s Day questionnaire printable

Simply click here and I’ll send you the password to my Resource Library so you can download your free Father’s Day Questionnaire printable as a pdf (I don’t send it as an attachment because SPAM filters tend to get aggressive).

This printable has “2020” printed below Happy Father’s Day. If you like the activity and want to do it again (as I said, these make great year-to-year traditions), just come back next year and download it again (I’ll be updating the file and re-uploading it for 2021. Wow, it feels weird seeing “2021” in print.)

Happy Father’s Day!

    Great idea! I’m also a Boymom of 3…now all teenagers, but can relate to trying to find meaningful ways to get them involved in gift-giving.

      Hi Dianna,

      I always find it encouraging when there’s another boymom (especially with three — or more) who has made it down the road and lived to tell the tale haha! It’s too soon to say, but I may very well force my boys to do this same Father’s Day Questionnaire when they’re teenagers too! The kids’ answers will most *definitely* be different though.

      Hi Sydney,

      I’m so glad you liked it. We love doing these types of questionnaires with the kids because the answers are just the best! Plus, it’s a really easy, cheap (free) way to do a Father’s Day gift without all the pressure of coming up with something new every year.

      Hi Claire,

      I’m so glad you liked it — we love these types of questionnaires in our house. They are just so cute and innocent and really like a snapshot in time of how your kids think. Let me know if you have any trouble with the document.

      Thanks for reading!

    I love this idea! But I think I’ll have to wait until next year. Right now my 1 year old would just answer “NO” to every question haha

      Hi Kelly,

      Haha, we like to make up answers on behalf of our baby/toddler. I used to fill out the Father’s Day questionnaire myself when the older ones were younger, but now that they are old enough to answer, they make up the answers for the youngest (which, honestly, is more hilarious a lot of the time).

      Hi Jennifer,

      I’m sorry, I’m not sure why that is (I’m looking into it, but you should’ve received a message that said, more or less, here is the link to the resource library and password). If that’s not what happened, I’m not sure why (but I’ll keep digging). Clearly my website management struggles are showing. I am going to email you the correct info right now.

      Also, I’m sorry for the delay — I got a little behind on approving comments this past week. Thanks for your patience!
      Charissa
