I Love You Because...Love Note - FamilyEducation

I Love You Because…

by Trish Kuffner, author of The Preschooler's Busy Book

Ask your preschooler why she loves daddy, and make a "love note" from her answer.


  • Paper and pen
  • Crayons or markers


  1. Ask your child, "Why do you love Daddy?"
  2. Write her responses on a sheet of plain or construction paper, and have your child decorate it with crayons or markers.
  3. Place the "love note" as a surprise in Dad's lunch the next day.
  4. You can vary the questions you ask your child, such as, "What's the funniest thing Daddy ever did?" Or do this for friends or grandparents and other relatives. Some of the answers you get may be priceless!
