Every year I swear I’m going to take the kids shopping with me to buy a unique and fun Father’s Day gift. And every year my schedule gets the best of me and I don’t have time to do anything except order a gift from Amazon Prime! But honestly, anyone can buy a toolbox and call it a Father’s Day gift. This year, I’m going to have the kids use some creativity and some art supplies and make a meaningful Father’s Day craft. A one-of-a-kind gift that even toddlers can help out with. And besides, my kids love to make gifts for everyone. We do a ton of crafting over the holidays and even on Thanksgiving. They are so jazzed when they complete these gifts that we often give them to the recipients well before the actual day of the party or event! So why should Father’s Day be any different? These Father’s Day craft ideas – from customized cards to a grill set holder – will make Dad’s day extra special this year.
