Father's Day Ideas Dad Will Love

The best way to celebrate dad on Father’s Day is by getting creative with your hands and making him something special to remember the day with. If your kids are at the age where they’ll enjoy being a little artsy for Dad for Father’s Day, try some of these ideas.

Give Dad the Right 'Tools'

Does Dad need a new tool kit?  Chances are he would love a sleek and shiny update to what he currently has in the garage. The best part about this gift is that you are leaving the nitty-gritty of choosing his tools up to the head honcho himself. Put inside a gift card to his favorite home goods store. To make this gift extra personal, fill the new tool box with more sentimental items. Consider: Dad’s favorite candy and snacks, a framed photo of the family, a handmade card from the kids, a new phone case, or even some cigars! The opportunities are endless.

Personalized Fathers Day Tool Kit


Craft Stick Idea for the Little Ones

The younger they are, the easier the Father’s Day craft should be for their tiny hands. I Heart Crafty Things featured this cute idea using craft sticks as a frame to their adorable artwork for Dad.



Have them write special messages for Dad on the back for an extra way to express how much they care. 

An Idea Sweet as Candy

This super cute idea featured here is sure to capture Dad’s sweet tooth and heart.


Using candy bars, they created their own custom message that includes popular candy bars through their note on a poster board. You can get creative 


Dad Rocks!

Artsy Craftsy Mom featured this fun idea here. Using our favorite crafting supply, Mod Podge, have the kids decorate rocks (after you inspected them of course).


Using paints, sprinkles and other colorful embellishments, have them write a short and sweet message for the perfect DIY Fathers Day gift. 


DIY Dad Hanger

Here’s a really easy craft perfect for the preschoolers. It's simple to make and they'll love presenting it to their Dad for a sweet DIY Father's Day gift idea.


Motherhood on a Dime featured this easy idea using a simple white plastic hanger and file folder to create this unique and custom craft for Dad on Father’s Day. 


Easy Embroidered Card for Dad

Help the slightly older kids create custom cards using embroidery. It would be a good way to teach them some basic skills using sewing needles.


Have them create any design they would like for their dad with this unique idea. However, we love the bow tie and silk tie design of these cute cards.
