We all get our Dad’s a little something when Father’s Day rolls around, but getting him something homemade makes it that much more special? DIY projects come from the heart are cherished forever. I know this first hand, becuase Jason just loves anything the kids make for him.
5 DIY Father’s Day Ideas:
Frame Their Painted Hands – Your kiddies are only little once, as are their tiny hands. One of my favorites and most cherish gifts to give for Dads and Grandparents are framed handprints. This is super simply do to and I promise your kiddies will love getting their hands dirty!
Decorate A Mug With Sharpie – All you need is an inexpensive ceramic mug, sharpie, and some stickers! First wash out your ceramic mug. After it’s dried apply the stickers you want to use to create your design. Let your child start their drawing. Once it’s all finished, put your mug in the oven and bake at 350 for 30 mins.
Tie Dye A Shirt – We’ve been tie dying practically everything in our home the past few months. And turns out one of Jason’s favorite new tee’s is one we tie dyed for him. You can see our complete tutorial here.
Personalize his BBQ Spatula – Dads love to grill, so why not have your child paint the wooden part of a BBQ spatula that way he’ll always remember how special this Father’s Day was for him!
Make Him A Plaque with Salt Dough – Combine 1 cup salt, 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup water together to make a dough. Roll out the dough and then have your child mold into their favorite shape, they can place their hand prints on the dough or simply write #1 Dad. Bake at 225 degrees for 2 hours. You can paint them your favorite color once they are cooled!
So, let’s make sure being inside doesn’t keep us from the important things in life. Come Sunday, we will still celebrate Father’s Day and those awesome Daddies everywhere. We are trying to put a positive spin on the current situation because the Dada in our house is always out of town for work, for weeks on end. Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there!
