Let kids redo this basic office staple as a gift for Dad -- their messages will last well beyond Father's Day.
Wrap a rubber band around a notepad cube and have kids write greetings and make drawings on two sides with a broad, pointy marker. (Fine tips will get caught between the pages.) Move band, and decorate the other two sides. Tie the notepad with a colorful ribbon. As an added gift, slide in a pen.
Blank note cubes, $4.95 for three, from Oriental Trading, 800-228-2269 or orientaltrading.com.
