By: Jennifer Solomon

This year, why not let the kids stretch their creative muscles and create a one-of-a-kind gift for Father’s day. Let the kids show their appreciation with our fun Father’s Day gift ideas, including Dad-focused artwork, gifts for the office, and photo-theme crafts. These are perfect activities for kids to do. So print out multiple copies of the directions and have plenty of craft supplies on hand.

DIY Father's Day Gifts

Six Pack of Treats
Does dad have a sweet tooth? Check out this great idea containing a six pack of treats. As an added feature of coolness, the carrier containing the treats doubles as a chalkboard, allowing the kids to write special Fathers Day messages on it.

Rock Artwork
Rock crafts are a great go-to craft for you and your grandchild when impromptu creativity calls. Whether you paint them, color them with crayons, or drown them in glitter, you’ll find almost everything you need for these projects in your craft supply stash and right outside your door — no trip to the craft store needed.

Father’s Day Display Board
This is a great idea from Shanty 2 Chic and they even provide FREE printables for the board. What you will need: piece of 1×12 white wood, 1 coat of a favorite stain, Tim Holtz clips, Gorilla Super Glue Gel, and cream colored acrylic paint for the kiddos handprints.

Dad’s Stache Tray
It’s a “Dad’s Stache” tray. Get it? A tray for all his stuff with a picture of a mustache on it. What you will need: cardboard tray, two sheets of Duck Tape in the “moustache” pattern and one in the plain white, vinyl letters “DADS”, vinyl moustaches, ruler and scissors or paper cutter.

DIY Picture Frames
A DIY picture frame will bring a personal touch to every dad’s wall, desk and office! Use your child’s hands and fingers to create the perfect frame for Dad.
