Fathers Day Craft Ideas You Can Make
Father's Day Gifts You Can Make
Father's Day is a wonderful opportunity to take some time with the kids and really show that special guy just how much you appreciate everything he does the family. Making homemade presents and cooking for him doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg but is just as, if not more, meaningful than store-bought gifts. I hope you and your kids enjoy making these affordable crafts for your #1 Dad while not breaking the budget!
Does your guy have a favorite saying or inside joke? Put it on a t-shirt or better yet - an apron for BBQ's (add a couple fun BBQ sauces to the gift bag and Voila!). Using freezer paper to make t-shirts can be lots of fun and is very affordable to boot.
Make a great tray for Dad to throw his watch, coins, wallet and other small essentials. Follow the above link to a really cute tray you can make for only a few dollars. Instead of using the suggested Nouveau Background Digi Stamp as your background image, how about using a fun image of Dad & the kids for a really special and custom tray?
A more vertical version of the dreser catch all tray, this box made out of popsicle sticks (aka craft sticks) will delight your youngsters' as they watch everyday trash turn into an awesome box that Dad is going to just love.
A handy Dad can always use another place to stash his tools - and what better place than a bin the kids decorated with love. Get paint, glue, and wood cut-outs and let the kids go to town (under your supervision, of course!).
An especially great gift for a Dad who does a lot of traveling...Make Dad some fun custom photo luggage tags! When he gets off the plane and sees his kids circling around the baggage claim he'll have no doubt if that's his suitcase!
