They say handmade is best, and, well, when you have kids, crafts a no-brainer. Make Father’s Day extra special with these sweet gifts.
Mason jar terrarium
Dad will love this mini garden adorned with his favourite little gnomes. Bonus: this may be the easiest craft you ever make.
DIY beard oil
Go ahead, pamper your bearded buddy with this custom DIY beard oil. This craft requires buying a few ingredients, but because you’re a budding maker, you can use them for other projects.
Rad Dad mouse pad
Cheap and easy is the name of the game. You can easily find cork tiles at dollar stores, office supply stores or online. And if dad doesn’t want to use it as a mousepad, it still makes a rad bulletin board.
DIY gold metal
If you think pops is tops, make him a gold medal to wear. This craft uses an exacto knife, but you can adjust according to the age appropriateness of your crafter—construction paper and safety scissors are just as effective.
If dad is always losing his keys or looking for a place for all that loose change, he’s really going to appreciate this gift. Get creative with the patterns and colours of your tape. Have you been to the craft store lately? The variety of duct tape is fascinating.
This printable makes for an adorable and unique Father’s Day card. You could also recreate it with coloured paper and markers.
Popsicle stick frame
Don’t let those amazing photos hide in a folder on your computer, print them out for display. Washi tape is a very forgiving to work with, so this craft is easy-peasy.
Cheer dad on with this easy-to-make pennant. Customize it with his favourite colors.
This craft is a definitely more advanced, but if you’re up for the challenge, your snap-happy pops will be amazed.
Get ready for tears when you present this tiny little handprint keychain. It looks complicated but is surprisingly easy (and satisfying) to make.
