I don’t know if anything warms the heart quite like a homemade gift from your kiddo! Father’s Day is no exception – here are 25 homemade Father’s Day gifts from kids – and ones that Dad can actually use! Keep reading to check them out!
OK, moms – this is where we shine: helping the kiddos make Father’s Day gifts for dads. When Mother’s Day rolled around, I didn’t really want to help my kids make a gift for me. It just kinda felt…awkward, right? So, I created a post of Mothers’ Day gifts for Grandmas – that felt a little more natural. In the back of my head, though, I knew Father’s Day was around the bend, and this is where a lot of moms will step in – to put something together for dad. There really is something so special about homemade Father’s Day gifts from kids.
If your kids are in pre-school, Sunday School, or elementary school, there’s a chance they’ll be coming home with something for dad. Maybe a card or a little craft. They’re all so adorable – no doubt Daddy will love it.
On the blog today are actual homemade Father’s Day gifts from kids – a real present, not just a card or a craft. No malice toward the card or craft, but being the practical person I am, I wanted to put together some ideas that were actual gifts a dad could use. If it’s a gift, then that uncomfortable decision of ‘Do I save it or throw it out?’ down the road, never comes up! No awkward response to, “Daddy, where’s that card I made you?” three months from now.
June is upon us, moms – so here’s a list of homemade Father’s Day gifts from kids to get you going!
