(Fill it with jelly beans and "poop"
them out the back opening.)
Pap Pap's favorite game to play with
the kids in our family is the monster button. They start playing as
soon as they are old enough to understand the game and a few of the
young adults in the family may still give it a try from time to time
for fun. The idea is that whenever they push Pap Pap's belly button,
he turns into a "monster" and starts to growl and look
mean and as soon as they push it again, he becomes a happy guy. It
gives the kids a sense of control over that "scary guy"
and they will continue to push the "belly button" over and
over until Pap Pap is too tired to play!
For a Father's Day Gift that
gives dad, grandpa, or other family guy a hug from everyone,
purchase a plain t-shirt and have everyone in the family make
handprints on it.
