With Father’s Day just around the corner, it is time to come
up with the perfect gift idea that dad will cherish forever. And if you want
your little ones to give him something great on the big day, consider crafting
your own handmade and homemade gift together. Here are seven Father’s Day gift
ideas that dad is sure to love:
1. A Simple Card
Although a card may seem small and insignificant, it
actually shows that you took the time to say a few things that you love about
the recipient. And for an added personal touch, have the children make a
handmade Father’s Day craft for the card, using pressed flowers, artistic
drawings, or anything else that you would like.
2. Write a Family
If the little ones are old enough to read and write, sit
down together and write a short story about the family. The children can
illustrate each page to make a great gift for dad.
3. Handprint Painting
For a simple yet meaningful Father’s Day craft, pick up a
piece of canvas and some non-toxic fingerpainting supplies, and have the kids
press their hands against the medium with a hand full of paint. The resulting
painting will give dad something he can treasure for the rest of his life.
4. Paint a Mug
If dad loves to drink coffee in the morning, get a plain
white mug from the department store and some paint and paintbrushes. Have the
children paint dad a picture on the mug, and sign it with their names. This
handmade gift will bring a smile to dad’s face every morning.
5. Personalized DVD
Take pictures of the kids, and use an online software to
print them out in the shape of a DVD. You can then paste the printed pictures
on top of each DVD in dad’s collection, giving him something to be proud of
every time he watches a movie or listens to music.
6. “Best Dad” Trophy
This Father’s Day gift is part from a store, and part
handmade. Have a trophy made that boldly claims “Best Dad” on the very front
(this gift for dad works great if he already has a trophy collection for himself
or for the kids). Then, decorate the trophy with pictures of the kids,
personalized messages, and other decorations from the hands of the kids.
7. A Handmade Dinner
Dad probably loves to eat, and everything will taste so much
better with a homemade meal that involved help from the children that he loves.
Pick one of his favorite dishes, and give the kids jobs that will let them add
their own personal touch without causing too much of a mess. Bon apetite!
