Father’s Day is this Sunday. My husband desperately wants a 6′ tall metal rooster to put in the front yard. Umm, honey, I love you, but seriously? So I’ll be off to the lawn and garden store tomorrow to see if I can find one that’s cute and not tacky beyond words. And it will NOT be 6′ tall! I’m thinking maybe 1′ tall and I’ll strategically place it behind a big bush.
But I do love the idea of having the kids make a gift for Dad themselves rather than a store-bought card. I mean, sure, you can run to the store and buy a card. It will probably reference ties or football and will be sweet and a little funny. But wouldn’t it be better and more meaningful if the kids made something themselves?
Here are 5 Easy Father’s Day Gifts the Kids Can Make (or at least help make!) I spent some time on Pinterest today and found a ton of ideas, but here are my personal favorites.
Last year my kids made this giant card, as found on SimplisticallySassy.com
. It was absolutely adorable and we giggled the whole time we were making it. I couldn’t find Now & Laters or a $100,000 bar so we had to improvise. Here’s how ours turned out:
How about breakfast in bed, including some heart shaped bacon
? Chelsey at The Paper Mama posted this recipe and we made this last year as well.
And yes, another thing we made last year. (I have a bit of a Pinterest fetish, it seems.) Jillian at FoodFolksandFun posted this cute printable along with a recipe for sticky buns
. Bacon sticky buns, that is! My hubby loves him some bacon and so do I, so the kids and I made this one too.
Here is one I have not yet tried but I might do it this weekend! This is so cute and easy. In other words, right up my alley. Check out DIYReady.com
for this project.
And last but not least, a little handprint craft from CraftyMorning.com
. I have several handprint cards that my son has made at preschool and they are so adorable I have every one of them hanging up in my house somewhere. This is probably cuter than all of them.
So there you go, 5 things you can do for your very own Super Dad this Father’s Day!
