4 Father’s Day Gifts for Kids to MAKE

2 Y ears ago by

This Father’s Day, celebrate Dad with gifts made from the heart! Get crafty with the kiddos and MAKE something that he will treasure for years to come.

We know your time is precious, so these projects are not only simple, but they all take less than an hour to MAKE. Talk about a win-win!

1. Daddy Clay Dish

This dish is easy to MAKE with air dry clay. Let the kiddos get their hands dirty by shaping a bowl and then painting it Dad’s favorite colors once dry. It’s the perfect gift to hold his cufflinks or spare change.

Maker Tip: While your clay is still soft, let your child write a message in the dish with a toothpick!

2. Photo Transfer Coasters


Get those images out of your phone and put them on coasters! It’s easy to transfer pictures to this 4-piece coaster set and Mod Podge®. Whether they are teeing off, hitting a home run or just doing cute kid activities, preserve those precious moments on coasters that Dad will use every day.

3. Handmade T-Shirts

This DIY tee is as messy as it is fun to MAKE! Just place paint on your children’s palms and press them onto a T-shirt.  Don’t worry if it’s perfect. The more handprints, the better!

Maker Tip: Use several shades of the same color paint for a camouflage effect.

4. Dad Doodle Mug
