Celebrating Dad on Father’s Day

Celebrating Dad on Father’s Day

Father’s Day is just around the corner on the third Sunday in June, so it’s time to get ready for Dad’s big celebration. Here are some great gift ideas that are easy to make.

Make a special baseball plate. With just a few items, you can create a unique gift that features your child’s handprints and ties into dad’s love of baseball. Read on here for details.

Customize a mug. Many sites, such as Snapfish or Shutterfly, feature special coffee mugs that you can customize just for dad. Have your kids help you select a special photo, upload it, customize it with a special message, and you’re all set!

Crown Dad King. Use some construction paper and simple craft items to make Dad a special hat for Father’s Day. He’ll be happy to be crowned King for the day! View how-to instructions here.

Make a winning trophy. With some decorative dried pasta, gold spray paint and an empty and clean plastic bottle you can create a wonderful and completely unique World’s Best Dad cup. Kids can use craft glue to create patterns on the bottle using the pasta, and then glue on handles and a base for a true trophy look. Mom can spray paint with gold and let it dry. Then, using old arts and crafts supplies, buttons and pictures of Dad and the kids, the children can add that touch of bling to really make their trophy to Dad shine and sparkle.
