3 Things Your Kids Can 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 to get you going.


Here are three things your kids can make for Father’s Day:

1. “Dad coupons” – 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.

3. Why You Love Him – Another fun thing to make for Father’s Day is a list of why you love him. Your kids can write down all the reasons they love him and put it in a jar or shoebox (and decorate it), use them for homemade cards, or put up big signs and home décor for dad’s big day that have all the reasons they love him on them.

Now that you have these great ideas, all that is left is to get started. If your kids want to make any of these, gather up the supplies and instructions well in advance and let them get to it. Dad is sure to love it, especially since the kids made it themselves. You can also use these ideas as a jumping-off point and come up with more of your own. Let your kids brainstorm some really great ways to show their dad how much they love him.
