For Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, David and I never do any really big gifts for each other. We focus more on making the day special for one another and getting Tatum to make handmade crafts or gifts. For us, it’s more meaningful and thoughtful, and it doesn’t require a ton of money! We like to keep it simple, and I think the simple, homemade gifts can mean so much more than anything you can buy at the store.
Tatum and I have been brainstorming for the last couple of days about what we’re going to do for David this year, and while searching on the internet I found some really adorable and inexpensive ideas. Here’s my favourite craft/homemade gift finds for Father’s Day that you and your kids can do together!
This is a really cute and inexpensive photo gift idea for Father’s Day! All you need is a creative idea like this and a cute frame (you could probably pick one up from the Dollar Store and have your kids decorate it!) and you’ve got an adorable homemade gift for dad.
Have some popsicle sticks, a picture of dad and his kiddos, and some glue? Then you can easily make this cute homemade picture puzzle. This is a fun little puzzle gift for dad but also a fun game for kids to play with too!
This is another photo one, but I couldn’t resist including it since it is such a cute and easy idea. Grab some wooden letters from the Dollar Store, line up your little ones and take some pictures of them holding the letters! Even if you only have one or two children, this would still be a really cute idea. Easy and fun!
Here’s an easy craft that the entire family can do. You can customize the sun any way you like. This is a great craft to use up little decorations you may have lingering around with your craft supplies, and would look really nice hanging in a window!
Here is a cute printable from Every Heart Counts that your kids can fill in. Have them figure out which words to fill in for their dads and let them write them down, or write them down for them. This is a cute way to see how your kids view their dad and what they love the most about him.
Here’s some more cute handprint art. Cut out handprints in different patterned paper, glue to a nice paper background and put in a pretty frame. Handprints are always a good way to go for homemade crafts and gifts!
This is an easy paperweight craft that you can whip up in no time. Salt, dough, water and some rocks make up this cute craft that can be customized however you like for dad. Your kids would definitely have fun putting together this craft!
How do you plan to celebrate Father’s Day this Sunday?
