#3. Best Dad I Ever Saw

Isn’t this a sweet and easy idea from Easypreschoolcraft.blogspot.com?

Using a paper plate and a saw cut out of construction paper, you can make a Best Dad I Ever Saw card.

You could do other favourite things of your Dad in place of the saw (my husband isn’t very DIY oriented but he’d love an LP themed card!).

#8. Dad Rocks Paperweight

We love the simplicity of this Dad Rocks Paperweight project from OurFamilyWorld. After all what Dad wouldn’t love a paperweight created by his kids?

Choose a rock that would be heavy enough to hold down paper, and ensure thoroughly cleaned. Then paint with acrylic paint letting the kids be as creative as they like.

Follow with a thin layer of glitter glue, and once dry write “Dad Rocks”. Finish with acrylic sealer spray.

#9. I Love My Dad

My Dad printable

This is a super easy Father’s Day gift idea for the kids. Print off our free downloadable “I Love My Dad” sheet and get the kids to fill it in. Their answers will be personal and meaningful to Dad, and will be sure to bring a smile to his face.

Get the kids to make their own homemade Father’s Day cards and include the sheet in the card.

It’s also worth keeping sheets from year to year, and watch how the answers change as the kids grow.

Expect some cute answers!
