9 Homemade Father's Day Gifts

Updated: Jan 8, 2022



Father's Day is right around the corner. It's time to start thinking about gifts that show fathers just how much they really mean to us. If you're anything like me, you prefer homemade gifts to store-bought ones, especially on such a sentimental holiday. So today let's explore some crafts and gifts that your child(ren) can make to show their dad how great they are! #weloveyoudad



Toddlers and Preschoolers


Love You to the Moon and Back!

How cute is this footprint card? Hop on over to The Best Ideas for Kids to find the directions.


Dad Finger painting

Do your children love making a mess? #kidslovemesses Well then, look no further than this fun finger painting card. Unfortunately, I can no longer find the website for this craft, but the photo still exists and I think you can make it without any directions.


Fishing You a Happy Father's Day!

If you have a fishing lover for a dad, this is the perfect craft. If he's not a fishing lover, well, it's still adorable and gives your little one an opportunity to work those fine motor skills and play with glue. Head on over to Ramblings of a Crazy Woman to find directions.



Early Elementary Kids


Hooked on Daddy

Of course, another fishing card! Although this picture looks beautiful, I would encourage you to let your child practice their scissors skills. Let them cut out their handprint and the blue paper. It will be much more authentic if your child does the creating. Check out the directions at The Best Ideas for Kids.


Shrinky Dinks Keepsakes

These keepsakes are fun to make and give your child a cool science experiment to be a part of. You can make all sorts of designs and messages that can be placed on dad's key ring for a constant reminder of your love. Head over to Joann to find out how.


Photo Holder

These photo holders could take a whole afternoon to create and you can make and store several of them for grandparent's day gifts! Let Buggy and Buddy give you the instructions.



Older Kids


Scrabble Frame

Don't worry if you don't have any extra Scrabble pieces around. You can buy tiles at the craft store to make this beautiful keepsake. You also have the opportunity to come up with any message you want.

This idea comes from the Easy Peasy and Fun website. Check it out!


10 Things I Love About Dad

This is a much more personal and heartfelt gift to give. If you are running short on time you can buy colored popsicle sticks, otherwise, let your kids be creative and paint them. Check out the directions for this gift at ezeBreezy


Paper Roll Fathers

Each paper roll is individualized to reflect your dad! How cool is that? Your kids can design the clothes and fill in the facial features. After the dad replica is finished, have them write a note, roll it up, and put it inside the tube. It's an all-in-one gift! Visit the Non-Toy Gifts website to find out how they did it.


However you choose to celebrate dad this Father's Day, I hope it's fun and he knows how much he is loved. Let me know if these ideas were helpful to you. When you make one let me know in the comments. How did it go? #sharethelove
