Each balloon is attached to a number representing an hour (8am, 2pm, etc). Within each balloon there is a piece of paper revealing the surprise. Each surprise was hidden around the house.
The Day Arrives:
Before leaving the house I placed a letter on top of the alarm clock wishing my husband a happy Father's Day and told him where to locate the balloons (hidden in our basement bathroom we rarely use).
On the hour my husband and son would pop the appropriate balloon to reveal the surprise. The gifts went like this:
8am: French toast casserole in the refrigerator to be heated up for a yummy breakfast.
10am: Pictures of my son I had secretly had done for my husband to hang in his office.
12pm: Gift card to pizza place for lunch to be had at the pool (I had packed the pool bag and placed in his trunk)
2pm: More pictures for his office
4pm: Another gift card for dinner
6pm: A daddy and me book to read with our son along with a homemade card from the child
8pm: A bottle of his favorite whisky and a favorite movie to relax with
This made for a super fun-filled day that could be used for birthdays, anniversaries or just a summer day activity.
