Fathers Day Presents
Fathers Day falls on Sunday 21st June this year. It is always the third Sunday of June each year and it is a chance to honour and thank the father figures in our lives such as fathers, grandfathers, father in-laws etc.
We have pulled together some fabulous craft ideas for cards, prints, gifts and all in easy to follow videos, templates and instructions.
Let’s start out with a Card
We have created a simple template which you can download onto card or paper and decorate. You will need some paints or paint pads and some little fingers for this one.
‘I love you to the moon and back’ print
You could frame this one and have as a keepsake forever. You will need some card or paper, a paint pad or paints, some coloured card or pens to add the extras to the picture.
Salt Dough Dish
This is the perfect little gift, made form your little ones handprint. Our easy to follow salt dough recipe means you can even have fun making and playing with the dough before creating your gift. Once you make the salt dough place a 1cm think piece on to some baking paper. Press your little ones hand down firmly into the dough. Use a knife and cut around the hand shape. Then curl the fingers up slightly to create a small dish. Leave to air dry or place in the oven on a low heat for a couple of hours. Once dry you can paint it and then seal with some varnish.
Salt Dough Recipe
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup water
My Dad Rocks
This is great one for any age. Grab some rocks/stones from your garden or beach and turn them into a priceless gift. Let little ones create a beautiful stone using paints and when dry you can add ‘MY DAD ROCKS’ over it or for older children sharpie pens can create some amazing effects. If you varnish them afterwards they will last longer and you will be able to leave them in the garden or outside your door too.
The gift that keeps on giving! And all you need is a jar, a permeant marker and some lego bricks. Sit with your child and come up with a list of things they would love do do with their Dad. Add each one to a lego brick and then add them to the jar. You can print our template label to add or create your own one. This gift means they can decide with their Dad a fun activity to do together at set times and create some wonderful memories.
Here are list of ideas for your jar;
- Read a book together
- Go fishing
- Go camping
- Watch a movie
- Play with the lego
- Build a den
- Go for a cycle or walk
- Play a board game
- Do some star gazing
- Get crafty
We hope these help you create some wonderful gifts and cards and that you all have a peaceful and restful fathers day.
