    Free Preschool Father's Day Poems

    Father's Day is a special time to show your dad just how much you love him. I've put together a list of some of my favorite poems to provide you with some free preschool Father's Day poems that can be used for cards or attached to special gifts.

    I Love You Daddy, Happy Father's Day

    I like you father for reading to me

    I love you daddy for fixing my skinned knee

    I like you father for helping me catch lightning bugs

    I love you daddy for your kisses and hugs

    I like you father for playing soccer and baseball

    I love you daddy for picking me up whenever I fall

    I like you father for just being you

    I love you daddy for all that you do.

    I like you father for chasing the monsters away

    I love you daddy, Happy Father's Day

    A Day with Dad

    My dad works in an office downtown,

    And when he's home, he works all around.

    He cleans up dishes and that job's hard;

    Then he rakes up leaves and mows the front yard.

    But Dad always finds some time for me,

    And that's what makes a family.

    Footprints Poem and Father's Day Gift Idea

    Dad and Jaden shirt 002 

    Dad and Jaden shirt 001 

    A few years ago I had my son make a shirt for his dad using this poem. This is a great Father's Day gift idea to use with this free preschool Father's Day Poem.


    White tee-shirt

    Photo of child and dad

    Red, Yellow and Blue paint


    Take the shirt, photo and copy of the poem below to a tee-shirt shop that puts graphics on shirts. Have them put the poem and photo on the shirt. Take the shirt home and have the child place their feet in different colors of paint and step on the shirt. Be careful not to step on the poem or photo. Any dad would be proud to wear this special shirt.


    "Walk a little slower, Daddy",

    Said a little child so small.

    "I'm following in your footsteps,

    And I don't want to fall.

    Sometimes your steps are very fast,

    Sometimes they're hard to see;

    So walk a little slower, Daddy,

    For you are leading me.

    Someday when I'm all grown up,

    You're what I want to be;

    Then I will have a little child

    Who'll want to follow me.

    And I would want to lead just right,

    And know that I was true;

    So, walk a little slower, Daddy,

    For I must follow you."
