'He does funny knock knock jokes': kids share dad stories

THIS Sunday morning thousands of kids across the Fraser Coast will be pulling out their hand-made gifts and cards to honour that special man in their lives.

It's Father's Day and every child has their own stories to share about their dad and when you are five-years-old sometimes those answers are just downright funny.

The Chronicle headed to some of the schools around the region to find out what our little ones thought of their dads.

Firstly we asked them, 'What's your favourite thing about your dad?'

While five year old Callum Jocumsen from West State School in Maryborough said he liked it the most when his dad tickled him under the arm.

Also from West school Chloe Findley, 5, said she was going to shower her dad with love. "I'm going to give him a big hug".

Most of the children had already prepared their special gifts for dad.

Albert State School principal Phil Murtagh said the students across the school had been busy making cards and crafts for the big day.

These were not necessarily the items they thought their fathers wanted to mark the occasion when we asked them 'What do you think dad would like for Father's Day?'

Then we asked them, "What does your dad always say?"
