Father’s Day comes in late spring, just before the summer solstice. This is a very special day to celebrate our dads, the often-unsung family hero. Moms seem to get most of the attention, so showing your dad how much you care by making him a special handmade gift can mean the world to him.
I have made many Father’s Day crafts over the years, from toddler friendly to ideas for teens. My most recent project here in Ganz Parents Club was these Father’s Day Salt Dough Magnets, which are so fun to make! Out of all of the crafts I’ve made with dad in mind, there will always be some favorites that I hold dear.
Here are my Top Five Favorite Father’s Day Crafts:
Sports Ball Ornaments
This project is great for older children, ages 11 and up. It does take some time in the beginning, mostly for drying, but the results are so fun!
Dad Rocks Paperweight
This is such an easy project, great for any age. With a little help, even a toddler can enjoy making this sweet craft for their daddy.
Salt Dough Dad Magnets
This is my newest Father’s Day creation and I just love the colors. This is great for any age group, though the painting is more suited to kids aged 9 and up. Younger children may want to skip the polka dots.
Duct Tape Wallet
The ever popular duct tape wallet! This is an ideal gift for dad, kids aged 7 and up will love making this for their dad.
Father’s Day Uniform Shirt Card
There were many shirt & tie type cards out there, but my husband was a mechanic. So for our kids, a uniform shirt card made more sense. That’s why I came up with this project.
I hope you all have a wonderful Father’s Day, and remember to give your dad a hug and kiss!
