Would your little ones like to give their dad a custom-made gift for Father's Day? Making his day with a custom little creation is not as complicated as you might think.
Here is a list of 10 Father's Day arts and crafts ideas for kids that will be sure to make his day. These gift ideas are original, could potentially be actually useful, are colourful, and are adaptable to every dad’s unique personality.
MOVIE NIGHT IN A JAR
Is dad a movie buff? Then give him a special ‘movie night’ gift. Help your kids by grabbing a jar and filling it up with popcorn, maybe a few chocolate bars or candy, or both, and hand-drawn tickets by the kids. Then enjoy a nice Father’s Day evening watching one of your family’s favourite movies.
AN ORIGINAL PORTRAIT
What parent doesn’t love art made by your children’s precious little hands; what a treat for Father’s Day! Encourage your children to draw or paint a colourful portrait of their father, or to draw a self-portrait for dad.
Any piece of art by your child is a keepsake for life!
A CUSTOM-MADE TIE
What's better than outdoing your colleagues with a post-Father’s Day custom-made tie; if nothing else it will certainly be more original than everybody else's at the office.
Another great Father's Day arts and crafts project for kids is to make a paper tie for dad. Once you cut out the shape, allow the kids to decorate and customize it by adding colours and/or words that make them think of their dad!
A CAFFEINATED GIFT
If dad is the type of guy who really loves coffee, then your wee ones could give him a custom-made or personally bought mug. And as an extra little gift, why not add his favourite coffee beans or grounds in it, to make sure it is fully ready for his morning coffee.
POTTED PLANT HAIR
Many fathers are at that tender age where their hair isn’t quite as lush as it once was. If Papa is one of these guys and has a green thumb, then a great and funny DIY idea is to give him a potted plant with a picture of his face on it.
By choosing a plant that mimics his dream hair, you can give him the gift of having hair again! This Father's Day arts and crafts idea offers a guaranteed laugh, at the very least.
A ‘BEST DAD’ TROPHY
Is there a more classic way for a child to celebrate Father's Day than by awarding their dad THE ‘Best Dad’ trophy?
The whole thing can be made with just a little paper and pencil crayons. It's a simple craft, but also a tried and true meaningful one.
PERSONALIZED GOLF BALLS
If dad is a golfer, then why not get the kids to decorate a set of golf balls for him. These balls should give him better luck on his next round, or at least a smile when he reaches into his bag.
PIZZA MAKING KIT
If dad is an Italian food lover, or even just a pizza lover, we have a great gift idea for you! Give him a prearranged box with all of his favourite ingredients to make his favourite pizza ever! Best part is after you give it to him, you can all cook it together as a family.
It's not a craft per se, but add an extra element of joy by having the kids decorate the pizza box in any way they want.
If he is more into hops, whiskey, rum or really any kind of beverage, then consider making him a personalized coaster!
To make one, or some, simply buy a blank cork coaster, and have your kids add their artistic touch to it.
We hope these Father's Day craft ideas for kids will help you and your children have a great time creating memories for dad together.
Happy Father's Day!
