Father’s Day is coming!
It’s no secret that moms love homemade Mother’s Day gifts, but I think many people believe that dads don’t feel the same way.
Well…I’m here to break that falsehood apart from the inside out!
My husband loves all of his homemade Father’s Day gifts and has kept every single one he has received. So if your husband likes handmade gifts too, here are 20 Father’s Day craft ideas your kids can make all by themselves.
Easy Father’s Day Craft Ideas From Kids
There are crafts, and then there are CRAFTS. All the fathers day craft ideas on this list are more than simple doodads children make with glue or string. They are thoughtful gifts from your kids to their dad.
And any of them will make the perfect Father’s Day gift. I love these ideas because the kids can get involved and make dad their own gifts from their hearts!
As a bonus, all of them can be modified and personalized, so have fun making some DIY Fathers day crafts together.
Remember – this day is all about celebrating everything he does for you and your children.
Are you ready to have a ton of fun?
1. Coupons For Dad
Okay, these coupons probably won’t have dad hearing ka-ching sounds, but they’re even better! Spoil Dad with his Father’s Day gift this year by giving him these coupons from Homemade Gifts Made Easy.
2. Building Memories Lego Jar
I love this ‘Building Memories With Dad’ gift, and it’s definitely one of the best ideas for spending quality time together!
The Seasoned Mom‘s kids brainstormed different activities to do with their dad and wrote down each idea on a building block. If your children are too young to write, you can write out the ideas for them. Then, place all of the blocks in a jar.
Whenever there’s free time, kids and dad can grab a block and do the activity written on it to “build memories” together.
😉 Fun craft ideas don’t necessarily involve pulling out scissors or craft paint!
3. Special Dish From The Fur Babies
