Kid Friendly Homemade Gifts and Crafts For Father's Day

I save everything for the last minute usually.  Here are some easy Father's Day crafts you can do with your kids.  There are craft projects suitable for toddlers to teens.



 


 

 

Golf Cover Buddies

World's Greatest Dad Certificate


Dad Socks

Silhouettes

Garden Plaques


Dad Clipboard


Apron for Dad and Matching Child's Shirt 



Dad's Desk Organizer


Sports Memo Holder


Coloring Pages


Newspaper Carp Kite


 Jar Full of Love


Funky Luggage Tags


Tissue Paper Bowls

Kids Soup recommended giving children a small piece of cardstock (wallet size) and let them draw a picture.  Laminate it and give it to dad to carry in his wallet.

Father's Day Craft Box had a great idea about cutting a shape or design out of felt, punch a hole at the top, string with ribbon, and add a few drops of an essential oil and you have a car freshener for dad's car.

Decorate cupcakes or sugar cookies for dad.

Have the kids write special messages, poems, or pictures for dad on the driveway with chalk.  If you have sliding glass doors let the kids use watercolor paint to paint on the glass or use magic markers (not permanent).

Enjoy crafting your Father's Day gift! Don't forget to stock up on the hugs and kisses that need to accompany your present.

What fun crafts or ideas have you or your kids come up with to celebrate Father's Day?

Those are my favorite! My husband is just getting into golfing due to his job. He always has pairs of socks where one sock has a hole so the whole pair gets relegated to the dust rag bag. I thought this was a creative way to repurpose those good socks. I would probably recommend using sewing thread to attach the chenille craft wire golf clubs to the sock though rather than glue.

I love that folded shirt card. That's so cool!

I'm pretty sure some of those would meet with mom's approval too!

Thanks for sharing this! We'll probably try to make at least one of these arts & crafts stuff... after Father's Day. We already got a gift for my husband this year. :)
