Five Gifts to Make With Your Kids for Father’s Day

By Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. on June 9, 2014

Recent polls have shown that dads aren’t as excited about the traditional tie, socks, or power tools for Father’s Day as advertisers would have you believe.  In fact, what most dads want for Father’s Day is the chance to spend more time with their families.

Kids can make gifts for Dad with his help or with the help of another family member.  Here are five DIY gift ideas dads will love – because they come from the heart:

  1. Picture Puzzles
  2. Print out a photo of Dad and the kids.  Lay out a row of Popsicle sticks, glue the photo to the sticks, and cut the sticks apart.  Then, jumble up the sticks and put them in a decorated envelope.  The kids can help Dad solve his gift puzzle, or they can watch with excitement as he figures it out himself.

  3. Color a Mug
  4. A plain coffee mug and permanent markers allow kids to make great gifts for Father’s Day or other events.  Simply have kids write or draw a personalized design on the mug for Dad, then pop it in the oven at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes to “set” the ink.  Hand-wash only!

  5. Dad-Friendly Portraits
  6. Cut out the letters “DAD” from poster board, or purchase papier-mache letters at a craft store and paint them.  Have your child pose with each of the letters and take a photo for each, then assemble them in a frame to make a portrait that spells “Dad.”  If you have several children, they can each take a photo with a letter, or they can all pose for a group portrait with all three letters.

  7. Dinner for Dad
  8. The whole family can pitch in to make Dad’s favorite foods for dinner and set him a special place at the table.  If he loves to grill, consider picking up his favorite “grill food” and asking him to man the flames – while you and your “little helpers” handle the indoor ambiance.

  9. Notepad for Dad
  10. Buy a simple “block” notepad and have kids decorate the sides of the block (the edges of the notes on the pad).  The result is a gift Dad can take to the office to enjoy and that will brighten his day long after June has passed.
