Put a sentimental and personal touch on Father’s Day gifts this year. Let your kids handmake their gifts for Dad! Arts and crafts are a wonderful way for your child to stretch their imagination and creativity. We’ve compiled a list of DIY gifts your kids can make and have fun while doing it!
Buy a small, clay flower pot, and let your kids paint and decorate it. Help your children plant Dad an indoor plant for his desk, or make fake flowers out of paper with photos of your kids on them!
Paint a Picture
Pinterest has a ton of ideas if you need help thinking of an idea. Give your child a paintbrush, paint, paper, and let them paint freely. Or, have a more structured painting by using painters tape to write the word ‘Dad’. Once your child has painted their picture, peel the tape off, and voila, a gift for Dad!
Take photos of your kids holding the letters ‘D-A-D’ or ‘We love you’. Print them out, frame it, and it’s a quick and easy gift.
If you are pressed for time, fill a jar full of Dad’s favorite sweet treat and tie some ribbon around the lid.
Why We Love You
Let your kids made a card by using paper and crayons or paint. Have your children tell you reasons they love their Dad and write them down on the card, or if they can write on their own, ask them to write them on the card.
Cook a Meal or Bake a Sweet
Your kids can help you cook Dad’s favorite meal for dinner or his favorite dessert. They can help stir the pot or mix the cookie dough!
Plan a Scavenger Hunt
Your kids can make small gifts for Dad and help you hide them around the house. Write down a list of clues that Dad can follow to find each of his Father’s Day gifts.
