10 Creative DIY Fathers Day Gifts That Kid Can Make
Father’s Day is just around the corner and I know your crafty kids will want to do something amazing for this special day.
For dads, there is nothing quite as meaningful as receiving a homemade Father’s Day gift from their children on their special day. So if you still have no idea about DIY Fathers Day gifts, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
1. Homemade Father’s Day Cards For Kids
Before diving into the DIY Fathers Day gifts, let’s start with homemade cards. When it comes to Father’s Day, we love to make our truly personal wishes and of course get the kids involved in this creative process. These unique DIY card ideas are so special they feel like a gift.
Each of these cards includes a fun artistic process and is the perfect accompaniment to the gift that you will give Dad on his special day.
2. DIY Koozie
Dad will grin from ear to ear as he sips his favorite summer coolers from this DIY drink koozie.
It is also very easy to do. Cut a piece of craft foam that is shorter than a can. Wrap around the can and cut the length so that it just overlaps. Let your kid draw a picture on the foam with a fabric marker. Add a velcro to the back to keep it closed.
3. Scratch Art Family Portrait
What Dad wouldn’t love a hand-painted family portrait from his child for Father’s Day? The technique for making this gift is easy and fun. Put the finished artwork in a cheap picture frame, and your kids will have a unique Father’s Day gift to give their dad.
A framed word cloud is really fun and easy to make! With adult guidance, kids can choose a shape and fill it with all sorts of words that describe their dad. Frame your lettering and Dad will be honored to display it on his desk or in his office.
4. Drop Cloth Picnic Blanket
Dad will love lounging on this homemade picnic blanket (you’ll only need a few easy-to-find supplies to make it) with the family on a lazy Sunday afternoon! This will undeniably be one of the most practical DIY Fathers Day gifts you can give your dad.
To make: Wash and iron a canvas of the desired size. Use fabric paint. Tape desired patterns with painter’s tape and paint drop cloth. Let dry and go outside.
5. Fingerprint Daddy and Me Mug
Your child’s fingerprints are used to create the drawings on this mug. Dad will always think of his kid when he drinks coffee in the morning. I’m sure this gift will melt the hearts of every coffee-loving dad. Because of its simple and meaningful way of making, this is one of the favorite DIY Fathers Day Gifts.
6. DIY Grilling Apron
This is one of the DIY Fathers Day gifts for dad who loves to spend time out baking a delecious meal for friends, family and especially for the maker of this fun apron.
To make: Use a fabric marker of fabric paint and a small painbrush to draw “baking master” and the grill on a plain cloth apron. Afer dry, let the kid dip their little fingers in the yellow, red, or any color they like. Press the apron, right over the grill, to make a fire.
7. Homemade Pencil Cup
What dad wouldn’t be happy when placing this beautifully decorated pencil mug on his desk? For the right look, use a fabric scrap that resembles a men’s shirt and finish it with white felt for the collar.
8. Photo Frame Craft
Frames filled with photos are one of the most popular Father’s Day gifts, but they mean even more when they’re handcrafted from their kid.

And here’s one last Father’s Day creation that I absolutely love! Although it’s not exactly a DIY gift, it’s close enough. Create “pop art” for your dad’s t-shirt! Simply a meaningful quote or a message, send your request to the store and you have a unique gift. What a great personalized gift for Father’s Day, isn’t it?
