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.
