Father’s Day is right around the bend. A great way to get the kids involved with the gift sharing, is to consider having them make one (or a couple). If you lack the creativity to come up with an idea, don’t worry below are some great crafting ideas that will make excellent Father’s Day gifts that kids can make.
This year you can get your kids involved for Father’s Day, by getting them to craft their own Father’s Day gift. This is a great way to express love and appreciation as you are able to craft gifts that reflect your unique styles, ideas and feelings. Last year at Sunday school, the kids made a crown for Father’s Day. It was very inexpensive and the kids had lots of fun making them. We used a sheet of white Bristol board (8.5″ x 11″), Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils, safety scissors and white paper glue.
Here are the steps we used for making the crowns.
- With the sheet of paper in portrait position, fold the paper downwards in half.
- Cut the paper along the folded line.
- Use colored pencils to color your desired artwork onto the paper.
- Glue the pieces of paper together to make a ring. (It’s a good idea to size the ring in order that it fits Dad’s head)
- Let the glue dry. (You can use a few hair pins to hold the paper in place while it dries)
- You are finished
Here is one that my son started on. The glue had just finished drying. You can also help the kids with adding glitter or other decor. Try not to over do though, you want to crown to have some “masculinity” to it. He was so proud of the crown he had made. Crafts are also an excellent way to occupy kid’s minds and spark creativity.
If you are like me and need some help with ideas, then consider getting some templates or color schemes that are already available. This way you feel confident that the end product will be well proportioned and have the polished look that you are looking for.
An excellent resource for getting crafting ideas for Father’s Day gifts is the book Father’s Day Craft. This is a great book that you can use to help kids make crafts they can present to their fathers on Father’s Day. Each year I take one of the craft ideas from the book and have the kids at Sunday School make a gift to present to their fathers. It is always a winner. The book has great ideas along with templates and other resources to make the experience effortless for everyone.
This year you should have no trouble getting your kids involved in gift sharing with these great crafting ideas for excellent Father’s Day gifts.
