So we sailed on to the sun
Till we found a sea of green
And we lived beneath the waves
In our yellow submarine
I have a subby hubby.Yeah, that means a husband who works in the submarine. A Swedish friend of mine coined that term and it has stuck with me ever since. Even though Angel had the privilege to enter a real submarine in Karlskrona and that we have been to a couple of Navy Open House events, I realise she only knows that Daddy works on a ship. Full stop.
With all the hype about Navy@Vivo and since Father's Day is around the corner, we decided to make a simple craft closely related to Daddy's line of work - a Submarine, of course!
- 3 toilet rolls
- Construction paper in 3 different colours
- A bendy straw
- Printed circles with our pictures
- Glue gun
- Glue tape
Since we were on the topic of submarines, I wanted Angel to learn more than just putting toilet rolls and papers together. We had a talk, in layman's terms, about submarines and it was the perfect opportunity to teach her about some fun facts so that she could better understand what Daddy does at work.
Did you know all these facts about submarines?
To the subby hubby and daddy, please know that we are so super duper proud of you!
To all daddies in the world, here's wishing you a HAPPY FATHER'S DAY 2014! May you continue to work smart, stay happy and be the hero in your child's eyes.
