Making Father's Day crafts for the Best Dad Ever is all your children need, since their father is the best dad in their eyes. Kids will love making handmade gifts and cards, and dads everywhere will absolutely enjoy receiving them.    


Crafts featuring handprints are always a hit as they allow dad to see how big his kids are growing. This is a great idea as a gift for dad from a baby or toddler to start a new tradition that you can continue year after year. You can put a handprint on a home-made card, create a piece of artwork on a canvas, press a handprint into clay, or just pop it in a photo frame to hang on the wall. Children's hands and footprints make wonderful keepsakes for dad, as do cards with the first “Dad” scribbled on them. With your help, kids can make great Father's Day gifts that are simple and easy. For dad, a handprint is a good homemade Father's Day gift from his kids as it captures a moment in time. You can make a new hand or footprint artwork each year for something the kids will also love to look back on.

Cute Father's Day gifts from kids like rock magnets, tin can pencil holders or a keepsake photo frame they created themselves will surely make dad feel special. Maybe this Father’s Day dad wants to hear the truth, your child telling him he’s the ‘world's greatest father’. Making a cardboard trophy out of toilet rolls is a great Father's Day craft idea for preschoolers that they can decorate in their unique style with feathers, glitter, and paint. 


Creating a set of 'super dad' coasters is a great Father's Day craft idea for kids to make too. Have them draw their own pictures of what a super dad is to them.
