To celebrate Father's Day, here are 10 crafts that dads will be proud to bring to work or that will come in handy at home.
For the fishing dad
For the dad who loves to fish, ask your child to decorate a tin can and cut out some fish on which he will write services he would like to do for his dad, such as bringing him a snack, putting away his room, take out the trash or let him sleep a little later, for example.
Take out a small box, magazines and packaging with drawings and characters and ask your child to decorate the box so that it represents their way of seeing it. Is her daddy strong? Clever? Cunning? Funny? Does he like fishing? Video games? etc.
To protect dad's headphones when he listens to music while jogging or on the subway, this little felt pouch is a great gift idea, especially since school-aged children will be able to to make them by themselves.
A lucky charm
Your child can decorate a small stonesmooth that will become a paperweight for office dads or a lucky charm for dads on the go.
Race track sweater
For dads who like to have their back massaged, rest and spend time with the kids, you really can't get any better than this sweater. To make it, just use permanent markers or real fabric pencils on an old t-shirt.
If your child is too small to craft, they can still put their own into it by holding the letters P and A so you can make a photo montage for their dad to take to work. Older kids can make a frame out of popsicle sticks, it will be great teamwork!
Thank you cards
We are often more inclined to show our affection to moms, but dads need love too! Ask the children to prepare cards to thank their dad for what he does that gives them the most pleasure. The result might be really cute.
Most dads like to eat desserts! So that the dad in your life has a snack in his image to put in his mouth, prepare him cookies in the shape of a tie, an electronic tablet or a mower. Jelly frostings sold at the grocery store should help you achieve the desired result.
I love you so big
By tracing your child's hands on colored paper, you can make this wonderful accordion that will remind dad of his importance with real children's words.
Here is another easy card idea to make with kids. Ask the children to paint pasta in loops and stick them on cardboard to obtain the most beautiful map of the world. They will be happy to make it themselves.
I love dad
Cut out letters with an X-Acto knife and have the children hold the cards up in front of the sun. The photo you take can be put in a frame or used to make a card.
