Last Minute Father’s Day Crafts

Father’s Day is almost here. Ohmygooodness I completely blanked. Between a new job, working out, wedding crafts, and, you know, eating I completely spaced. Guys, Dad’s do so much for us. I don’t even have to get on a pedestal for everyone to know how much your dad or father-figure do for their families. This holiday seems to get underscored a lot, especially in classrooms, because it is in the middle of the summer, but I feel like we should give our dads the same treatment as any appreciative holiday!


Last Minute Father’s Day Crafts


Man Cave SignsMy mom was always really good about homemade Father’s Day gifts. There is this frame with pictures of all three of us kids, painted, with the year, but this is the best part: my mom put all of our fingerprints on the frame with our full handprints on the back. Kid’s handprint crafts are the best for capturing that moment when they’re that age. I had made him a frame out of bottle caps one year (he still has that thing in his office). Honestly, any pictures of the kids doing a cute thing would make his day. My dad also has a thing for funny t-shirts. Personalize things. Make memories. We need to give Dad’s the appreciation they deserve or any father-figure. I always made two Father’s Day gifts when I was younger because I am very close with my uncle. Father’s Day is about appreciating the man or men in your life that mentor and help you in life.

This Father’s Day, don’t give Dad the same old tie or card. I know those are quick Father’s Day gifts, but these Father’s Day crafts are so much more fun, and he will love the hard work that you put into it. You can upcycle old ties that he doesn’t wear anymore and create a necktie wreath for your door or his office space. You can mimic my mom’s idea with the picture frame or use this recycled pop-can picture frame. If you’re in a quick fix, these gifts are a way to personalize the holiday while still saving you time. He will love your creativity in making these projects. If none of these still don’t fit your fancy, try some of these wire-work crafts and you can make a tie holder.

Best Daddy Award
Dear Old Dad, you’re so rad.
You lift my spirits when I’m feeling bad.
We love when you make us pancakes on Sunday.
Every day is fun with you, even Monday.

My dear Ol’ Man, the man with the plan.
I want to be just like you, if I can.
You’re so clever and handy with tools,
You make the rest of us look like fools.

Dear Old Pops, you’re really tops.
For you, I’ll pull out all the stops.
It may seem like a worn out cliché,
But I wish you a very Happy Father’s Day!

Father’s Day Gifts

It’s never too early to start thinking about an upcoming holiday like Father’s day for example. It’ll be here before you know it, so you might as well be prepared. Make some fun crafts with your kids to give for Father’s day. Father’s day gifts are great when they are homemade. Daddy’s always love watching their kids grow up so of course he’ll love something made from the heart. Here you can find a fun and easy Father’s day gift that he’ll cherish forever.

The word gift usually means something that he doesn’t know about, something that he has to unwrap and be surprised about, but not with this craft. What a great gift for Father’s day then to do some crafting with your kids and make portraits. This is really neat because it’s so different, you can draw your portraits of each other on your sliding glass door or a lower window in the house. One person needs to be inside while the other on the outside.

With Dad on the outside, it’s the child’s time to draw his face by tracing it with a fun Crayola washable marker. This allows the child to use a little bit of creativity while working on their drawing and tracing skills. They can draw the nose, the eyes, the lips and mouth, maybe even some teeth if Dad has a big smile on his face. You can end up with the silliest portraits by using crazy colors. Make the lips purple or draw the hair green. It’s a great time for everyone.

If you don’t want to use a window in the house you can buy a clear washboard so that when it’s done you can put it in a frame and hang it up. This truly is a great craft for a Father’s Day gift.
