I wanted to make sure the kiddos and I mixed things up a little this Father’s Day, so I left the gift ideas up to them and just helped with putting together an easy Father’s Day Craft.
We actually went to the Dollar Tree to brain storm on ideas and while there, they found affordable items that their Dad would really appreciate. Looking for additional Ideas? Check out these Father’s Day Craft Ideas.
Between his favorite kind of candy as well as cookies, we also found a flashlight, ear buds, and even lip balm.
Plus, I located excellent containers in the kitchen section that all the items would fit inside. After our shopping trip, there were enough items for all 3 kiddos to create something for their Dad.
Because of this, each of my children designed their own works of art on the containers and assembled a Father’s Day Craft that carries a Few of Dad’s Favorite Things on the inside and outside.
If you would also like to recreate this with your family, you will need the following:
– Oblong Aluminum Pans with Lids (2 ¼ lb Size)
– Assorted colors of 9 x 12 construction paper
– Safety scissors
– Glitter Glue
– Items to go into the containers
– Optional: Stickers and Stamps
First take the empty pan and place the items for Dad inside. Examples of a smaller gift could be: ear buds, lip balm, lint brush, pens, air freshener for an automobile, cookies, or candy.
Then take the lid of the container and flip it over the white side.
Decorate this with construction paper hearts or shapes, glitter glue, markers or even stamps or stickers.
Next take a piece of construction paper and fold it in half twice. This will make it a card small enough to fit into the gift box. Then have your child decorate the card.
Allow any glued items to dry and then add the card to the aluminum pan. Finally close the box by placing the lid on top. This present not only contains a Few of Dad’s Favorite Things, but it is decorated and packaged just for him.
I hope this inspires your family to create a unique Father’s Day Craft, and you all celebrate a fun day together.
