Sometimes Dad can be the hardest person to buy—after all, there are only so many socks you can give a man! So when it comes to this Father’s Day, you’re probably looking for something different and unique, whether it’s for your child to give to his father, or for your own father.
And when it’s Father’s Day, the main goal is to tell your dad how much you appreciate them, and we all know that the best way to do that is with something you make yourself—something that takes time, effort, and attention.
Here are some ideas for easy father’s day crafts.
What’s better than buying your dad another tie for Father’s Day? How about a personalized tie? This can be a great idea for an easy activity for your kids, as they can easily decorate a tie cut out of cardstock for dad to put on his desk at work.
If you want to go one step further, you can create a personalized apron, or even personalized boxers. It provides something that not only has a personal touch, but which dad can wear any time.
For someone who wants nothing more than time with his family for Father’s Day, you can still give him a meaningful gift consisting of memories from those past experiences. One good way to do this is to make a scrapbook. This can include pictures, quotes, and other memories you’ve collected from your dad over the years.
If you’re not too creative, or don’t want to spend time on it, you can also make a photobook with a collection of photos, and print it out to give her. Alternatively, just one photo of you and him in a homemade frame may be the ticket to a meaningful, personal gift.
Homemade Golf Cover
For a golf-loving dad, this is a great gift that’s also super easy to make. Taken from Kids Fun Review, this particular example involves two pieces of fur of your choice. One great idea can work animal fur cloth on the one hand, and plain on the other. Alternatively, you can decorate it yourself. All you have to do is cut the tufts around the edges of the fleece, and then unhook them on every side but one, and the tufts can be tucked over the golf clubs to protect them.
One can never have enough mugs, and that’s even more true when they’re gifts from your kids. Grab a plain mug of any color and go wild with decorations. If your kids are younger, they may want to use glitter and paint to personalize it. If you want something less cluttered, you can decorate it with letters and spell out “I love Dad” or something similar.
