10 Quick and Easy Father’s Day Gift Ideas
Looking for DIY Father’s Day Gift Ideas? Here are 10 craft projects that will help the kids tell Dad how much he means to them. Make something for home, office or just-because that will make him smile when he thinks of his awesome kiddos!
Make sure Dad has a comfy day and night with Cargo Pocket PJ Pants that he will want to wear all the time! This is a sewing project for older kids and teens. Sew4Home guides you from start to finish – even including instructions on how to make your own pattern!
Everything you need to make this Father’s Day Portrait Clock is available at your local craft store. Well, everything except the photos – because those are on you! This is a super-fun project from Make It & Love It that will remind Dad who loves him all the “time”!
Dad can keep those stacks of papers where they belong with a hand-painted Dad Rocks Paperweight. Acrylic paints are available in an almost endless array of colors – you may already have what you need in your craft bin! Our Family World shows you how to prepare, paint and seal a rock for your rock.
Another sewing machine project that the kids can customize to suit Dad’s favorite interests. They can make Insulated Beverage Holders (Koozies) to match any interest or activity – football, fishing, camping, golf, biking, etc. The instructions from Positively Splendid are easy to follow.
Duct tape rules! Here’s a King of Duct Tape DIY for Father’s Day that includes instructions plus printable labels from Hostess with the Mostess. Younger kids will need a little help so that they don’t get themselves (or each other!) all wrapped up in the sticky stuff, but the fun results are worth it!
Super easy and super sweet, Awesome Homemade Bookmarks (with tassels!) will help Dad keep track of his own story time. Creative Family Moments shows you how to transform cute pics into sturdy bookmarks. Instructions for making the tassels, too!
Playtime and naptime are a match made in heaven with a cute-as-can-be Playtime with Dad Shirt! A plain t-shirt becomes an interactive toy with instructions from A Thrifty Mom, and all Dad has to do is relax! I’m thinking that those little car wheels massaging his back would feel pretty good!
This is a great project for kids who love to color but haven’t yet honed their drawing skills. I Heart Arts N Crafts uses stickers as a resist for painters pens so the kids can scribble away! Remove the stickers from the Scribble Mugs when the paint is dry, then heat set the paint in the oven.
For the superhero dads out there, the kids can make Superhero Sleep Masks so Dad can catch 40 winks for a daytime nap. (Or to fall asleep at night while Mom leaves her reading light on.) Cutesy Crafts provides patterns for several superhero personas.
A Nuts About Dad Picture Frame is a fun way for the kids to say “I love you.” It’s an easy project from Happiness is Homemade. So if you check that jar of odds and ends in the garage, you may already have enough nuts to make several picture frames!
