Adorable Father’s Day Crafts

Father’s Day is around the corner. If you are anything like me, it is a struggle to find gifts for the men in your life. I like to add in something with a personal touch and something my son can help with! Below is a round-up of some cute crafts and cards you can help your kids make for a one of a kind gift the dads in your life are sure to love! We’ve personally followed a few of these tutorials and loved the results.

Shrinky Dink Keychains

I’m always looking for ways to preserve cute artwork, and this is a great way! Your kids can color in something you outline, or the kids can make their own creations. You cut it out and place in the oven where it shrinks/thickens and becomes something more permanent. We used ours to create adorable heart keychains!

Magic Color Card

There are so many cute cards out there to make. It’s cheaper than cards from department stores, and it adds a nice personalized touch. I helped my son make this card last year for his dad and grandfathers. They loved it! It’s a cute surprise when you pull the card out and the image is magically colored in. You can do the Superhero design shown in the link, or anything you can think of.

Superhero Coasters

You can easily paint coasters, plates, mugs, cups, etc. which add a personalized touch and make a perfect gift. This particular idea is perfect for the superhero-loving dad in your life! You turn handprints into different superheroes. You can also make animals and lots of other images.

Rock Paperweight

This is a cute paperweight that is easy to make and would be perfect for the garden, office desk, or around the house! It’s easy to make and you can decorate the rocks, or leave them plain like in this example.

Fish Handprint Card

Another cute card! This is perfect for even tiny kids, just trace their hand and create an easy and adorable card.

Photo Series with Kids Holding Letters

I did this for my husband’s first Father’s Day! It took a ton of images and a bit of time, but it turned out perfectly. My son was 6 months old, so getting him to hold still was difficult. But, it was cute having some of the images where he’s holding the letters sideways or chewing on them. It was SO cute!
