Easy Homemade Father’s Day Crafts for Kids

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!

3 Things Your Kids Can Make for Father’s Day

1. 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.
