Things to make for father's day

Are you looking for a great way to make Father’s Day more fun? Do your kids want some ideas for special things they can handmake themselves for this special day?

While buying gifts can be a lot of fun, it’s also nice to give a handcrafted item. Parents love getting things made by their children. It’s something you can cherish for a long time.

While most dads are okay with another baseball cap or “World’s Best Dad” mug, you can show him how special he really is by making him something unique. The kids will love getting hands-on and putting their energy and love into it, and you can guarantee he will get something he doesn’t already have.

But, what can they make? If you’re struggling with ideas, we have some suggestions on things to make for Father’s Day that will get your creative juices flowing!

Father’s Day Coupons / Coupon Book

This is a fun idea and while you can find printables online, it’s sometimes more fun to create your own. The kids can make up ideas like “a big hug” or “good for one extra chore” or even “good for breakfast in bed” and give them to Dad for his special day. He can redeem them whenever he chooses.

If you want to get some ideas from others, here are some previously done Father’s Day coupons that you can look at:

Other Homemade Father’s Day Gifts

Don’t like any of the homemade Father’s Day gift ideas above? Here are a few other ideas you can try:

19. A Painted Rock

Painted rocks

This may not seem like the best gift idea, but think about it: if your dad works in an office, he can use the rock as a paperweight! If he likes to garden, he can place it somewhere nice. It can also just be a piece of home decor.

As far as what you should paint on your rock, the possibilities are limitless! Think about what your dad likes, and check out our beginner rock painting ideas for inspiration.

20. Custom Mug

Colorful Dad mug

This is such a cool idea. With some blank ceramic mugs and painters pens (or even sharpies might work), kids can make their very own custom mugs to give to dad. They can draw whatever they want on there.

Try making a “Worlds Best Dad” mug or a mug with a stick-person family portrait! So many fun ways to spin this idea.

21. Tin Can Pen Holder

Here’s another idea for the home office: a tin can pen holder. Just get a tin can, measure out a piece of construction paper around the can, draw on it, and then glue it on! You can also print out a photo and glue it on to the tin can like in the image above.

Check out our other tin can crafts for more ideas like this.
