5 Father's Day Crafts That Will Make Any Papa Proud


Father's Day is quickly approaching and it's time to start scratching our noggins for something special to make all the great guys in our lives. Handmade gifts mean so much more than anything store-bought, especially when made with love from your littles. Creativity is so important in our family and seeing our kids stretching their imaginations and covering their hands in paint and glue is the best present my husband and I could receive (even if there is a little bit cleaning up to do after). Here's a collection of easy, kid-friendly crafts that will bring big ol' smiles to the entire family this Father's Day. 


DIY Father's Day Flags via Country Living

This cameo flag craft is a lovely alternative to the traditional portrait! Leave them up all year 'round as fun way to add a personalized touch + some old school flair to any room. You can find just about any color of FolkArt Acrylic Paint, so matching the space will be a cinch.


Paper Roll Father's Day Cards via Pink Stripey Socks

Father's Day card + art project + recycling hack? Sounds like a triple threat to me! Your kids can either draw a self portrait (always entertaining), or you can stick on a photograph for a more mixed media feel. If you have several little munchkins, this would make a wonderful group birthday card for the gang to make together. Place all the cards side-by-side to spell out one big special Father's Day message! FolkArt Acrylic Paints are your best bet for this one, and how about throwing in a little glitter paint while you're at it?


Craft Comic Frame via Crafts by Amanda

Find a copy of your guy's favorite comic and use Mod Podge to make it into a picture frame he can enjoy every day! Throw in a picture of your little superhero(s) and this gift has some serious super powers. I think it would work great with newspaper, too. 


Portrait Clock via Make It Love It

Dad will never be late again! (Sounds pretty good, huh?). This portrait clock lets him see his little one's face every time he checks the time. I love the modern look the colorblock gives. Use your favorite color of FolkArt Home Decor Chalk for a flawless finish that will look beautiful on any wall of your house - or even in dad's office (because let's face it, it probably needs a punch of color!)


Tabletop Mini Golf Game via Oh Happy Day 

Use the Mod Podge Mod Melter (the perfect glue gun in my opinion) to create a tabletop golf course for a putter-loving pop. Hole-in-one!
