Are you looking for a quick and easy Father’s Day craft? Well, look no further! As a previous daycare owner, I’m sharing my best (cheap, quick, and easy) crafts below.
- Get a can of his favorite nuts. Have your little(s) decorate a piece of paper. Cut the paper to the size of the nut can and tape over the label. Add the words “We’re nuts about Daddy!”
- Find a questionnaire to ask your kids about their dad. Have them write the answers (or you can if they’re too little). The younger they are, the more funny their answers usually are.
- Trace their hands and cut them out. On one hand, write “I love you” and on the other, write “Happy Father’s Day!” On a slip of paper, write “this much” and fold it accordion style. Tape this piece to the hands.
- Have them decorate the back of a paper plate. Write “Number One Dad” on it and add “ribbon ends” (cut out paper to look like the ends of ribbons) to the bottom of the plate.
- Paint the bottom of their foot and stamp it on paper. Find the “Walk A Little Slower Daddy” poem and print it out on the paper with the footprint.
- Using a white piece of paper, tape off a saying (Happy Father’s Day, I love you Daddy, #1 Dad, etc). Let your child paint over it. When the paint is dry, remove the tape.
- Have them write down things they love about their daddy.
- Cut out paper in the shape of a tie. Let them decorate it. If you have string or yarn, you can add it to the tie so it’s wearable.
- Paint your child’s hand and stamp it on paper. Draw on an eye and a mouth to make it into a fish. Write “I’m hooked on you, Daddy!”
- Paint/decorate a rock and say “Dad, you rock!”
- Make a shoe print of his shoe on paper (with paint, mud, or any other transferable thing around your house). Paint the bottom of your child’s foot and stamp it inside of the shoe print. Write “Following in my Daddy’s Shoes.”
