    We gave six dads instructions for three different Mother's Day Pinterest crafts to build. The first was (I kid you not) Pretty Swirly DIY Flowers, the second was the Hand Print Lilly Craft and the third was a DIY Mother's Day Flower Pot Card. Here's what went down:

    We started out by doing some investigative journalism and asked the dads what they thought Pinterest was. Some had a plausible answer...

    Yep, that's exactly what Pinterest is.

    After that warm-up, it was time to get crafting...which seemed like a very daunting task.

    Some very astute observations were made.

    "I think have something here."

    "I like it."

    And important confessions came out, too.

    "I can't read pictures."

    But most importantly, the dad's realized that moms are kickass and they were so grateful to have them in their lives.

    So grateful, infact, they might even craft again.
