Father's Day Craft Ideas

In honor of Father's Day, which is celebrated in the US this year on June 17th, we wanted to give you some craft ideas to help you make Dad's special day extra special!

If your son or daughter are still little peanuts who can't yet make much of a card or gift themselves, this is a great gift for Dad (or Mom) from a little one who only needs to provide the adorable footprint! 

Here is another, little more complicated design of a DAD cut-out frame which you can paste photos in and give Dad as a gift.

I love this creative gift card holder that kids can make to present Dad with a gift card from his favorite tool store or auto parts store!
If you follow the link there is another style of shirt card to make for the more casual guy.

A car washing kit is a great and practical gift for Dad. Mom, help the kids design and print out a "Free Car Wash" coupon for Dad and you are ready with a great gift that will surely make him smile!

A bit more challenging of a gift would be a decorative pencil holder such as this nautical one below. You could decorate a jar with modeling clay objects which match Dad's favorite sport or colors. 

For the older child, a little more advanced gift idea would be  to make one of these great car kits to fill with necessary items Dad can have readily available in the glove compartment of his car. I realize the exact materials may not be available for some of us in our various countries but you can always improvise! You could always use an already made container or fabric pouch of some sort that you already have laying around and add pertinent items to where you live. For example, in Siberia during the winter months, lighters and matches are always an important item to keep on hand in case of an emergency.

I hope you can use at least one of these ideas in celebrating Father's Day this year. Remember, if none of these work out for you to try this year, there is always the safe route of.....

baking your way to his heart!

 Ever wondered if Fathers are honored in all parts of the world?
Next week we will take a glance around the globe at different mission fields and find out if and when they celebrate Father's Day. Come back for a visit!
