It is not a rarity that children in your care may not have a father's access on a regular basis. Sometimes Father's Day will make the children act out or feel sad because of this. In my daycare we all make gifts for Mom and Dad on their special days. The children without access to their father still make the craft, of course. I have them attach the following poem to their gift. Of course, when this is the case I am sensitive as to the nature of the craft, making it not necessarily masculine, but sentimental, such as a frame or picture.
To my Mom on Father's Day
I know you think there's been some mistake.
You're not a "Dad", for heaven's sake!
But you've been both of them to me,
And I just want to let you see,
That in my own quite special way,
I celebrate you on Father's Day.
