Father's Day Crafts & Activities

Looking for simple crafts and activities for Father’s Day? We’ve got you covered!

Magazine Letter Notes

Magazines provide endless opportunities for letter practice and fun! Let your little ones create a message for Dad using magazine letters. This encourages all sorts of great learning skills, including letter recognition and letter sounds, and can be adapted to a wide range of learners!

Father’s Day Portraits

An easy but thoughtful gift is always a Father’s Day portrait, courtesy of your little one! Use markers and crayons and encourage your child to draw Dad or another important father figure. Add a frame for a classy touch, and you’ve got a beautiful and treasured keepsake!

Miscellaneous Parts Frame

This adorable frame is easy to personalize and makes a great gift for those handymen in your child’s life! We scoured the dollar store for a cheap tape measure, and then we raided our tool box for miscellaneous nails, screws, nuts, and washers. Then we used hot glue to glue down all the pieces. Add a photo, and you’ve got yourself a great personalized gift!  

DAD Painted Cutout

This Father’s Day activity is simple but fun! We cut the letters “DAD” from cardstock (but feel free to use any word you see fit). Then let your little ones fill the paper with paint! Once the paint dries, it will be another great gift for Dad or a special loved one!   

Mini Hamburger & Fries Treat

This adorable “hamburger and fries” are the perfect way to “treat” Dad this Father’s Day!  Little ones will love to help build this burger, made with vanilla wafer buns, a peppermint patty burger, red and yellow-dyed icing (for the ketchup and mustard), and green-colored coconut shreds for the lettuce. Add mini fry chips (or yellow veggie straws will do), and you’ve got a delicious and adorable treat to share.

We hope you enjoyed our Father’s Day Crafts!

Or focus on one letter, such as the lowercase letter o, and write a bunch of letters on a piece of paper, making sure to include plenty of o’s.  Let your little one find all the o’s, and with each dab, encourage them to say the /o/ sound!

Easter Crafts and Activities

Looking for simple crafts and activities for Easter? We’ve got you covered!

Alphabet Egg Puzzle Match

This alphabet egg puzzle is a fun way to practice matching lowercase to uppercase letters! To make the puzzle, cut egg shapes out of colorful cardstock. Then cut each egg in half with a fun pattern and write the lowercase letter on the top half with the uppercase letter on the bottom. To make the game more challenging, try using all the same color paper (so your little ones can’t match by color!). As always, feel free to adapt, based on the needs of your learners!

Thumbprint Chicks

These thumbprint chicks are a cinch to create and make the perfect Easter card!  Dip your little one’s thumb into yellow paint and then stamp the paper. Use an orange marker for the beaks and feet and a black marker for the eye.  Feel free to encourage your child to add grass, a message, or any other creative touches!

Play dough Surprise Eggs

For an Easter egg twist, open plastic eggs and hide a letter inside (or a word for older kids!).  Then cover with play dough and let your little ones open their surprises! When they open them, challenge them to say the letter or sound!  

Easter Egg Letter Dyes

Dying Easter eggs is often a fun way to celebrate the Easter holiday. You can make this activity a bit more educational by using a white crayon to write on the eggs before your little ones dye them. Write their name to practice name recognition, letters, sight words, or any other things you want to focus on! Your little ones will love dying the eggs and seeing the words appear, and you’ve also snuck in some learning! Hooray!
