Father's Day Craft Ideas for Dad's Favorite Little Helper
Father's Day is fast approaching, and it's time to plan some fun crafts for the kids to show Dad just how much you care. Create a collage with him and the little one, or make some adorable handprints and footprints to capture your little one's tiny hands. Dad is sure to love each of these ideas, but don't think they are just for Father's Day—think birthdays and holidays too.
Get a wooden letter “D” and paint it, then have the kids and family put their handprints on it. Then write this poem:
Walk alongside me, Daddy,
and hold my little hand.
I have so many things to learn
that I don't yet understand.
Teach me things to keep me safe
from dangers every day.
Show me how to do my best
at home, at school, at play.
Every child needs a gentle hand
to guide them as they grow.
So walk alongside me, Daddy—
We have a long way to go.
This "Hooked on Dad" Father's Day handprint and footprint art is sure to melt his heart. Purchase a canvas and then paint baby's handprint and footprint onto it. You can then paint a fishing rod to join the prints. Finish by writing "Hooked on Dad" and including the date.
How sweet is this Father's Day gift from a toddler to her daddy? It includes a little poem: "This the hand you used to hold when I was only one year old," and a pink handprint with a little luggage tag all packaged in a nice frame to hang on his wall.
This Father's Day art project is made with a dollar store plate. Paint it with acrylic paint and bake for 30 minutes. Let dry and spray with acrylic spray. You can make this project for any occasion, and it's so easy and fun for preschoolers too.
