Fun Freetime: Father's Day (or Any Day) Crafts for Kids

Sandy Sandler, creator of Bowdabra, has put together several Father’s Day craft projects.

“Dads are always the most difficult to buy presents for. An easy solution – do not purchase a gift, rather make one instead,” Sandy suggests. “Father’s Day is the perfect holiday to surprise dads with homemade crafts. Dads are always so proud of their children, and they feel especially honored when they see their kids get together and make something, especially for them. It means so much to be appreciated on Father’s Day.”


Children can’t always put their appreciative feelings into words, so crafts are the perfect way for them to give back and express their love for their fathers, Sandy believes.


For Father’s Day Project Photos & Instructions, click below:

Custom Golf Balls for Dad

Even the youngest artist can decorate a golf ball! These custom golf balls make great Father's Day gifts! You only need two supplies – the golf balls and permanent markers. There is even a downloadable gift box that can be printed and folded.

Handprint Father’s Day Card

Nothing is quite as endearing as a child's handprint. Use your young artist's handprint to make the best Father's Day card ever.


Decorated Cork Coasters for Dad

No matter what Dad's chosen beverage is, he'll love these decorated cork coasters made especially for his Father's Day gift. A fun and easy project for kids of all ages.

Outdoor Hide-a-Key Gift for Dad

This outdoor hide-a-key makes a unique Father's Day gift. Finding camouflage supplies is half the fun of creating this great gift. And you're helping the environment by recycling a pill bottle.

I had a chance to interview Sandy to learn more.

Why is making a craft such a good gift idea for Fathers' Day?

The kids build self-esteem by creating the craft project as a gift for dad and there is nothing Dad appreciates more than a handmade gift from his kids.


How can kids make projects that are personalized and practical?

Kids can create wonderful collages of photos from a favorite vacations or decorate golf balls so dad always knows which balls are his.

What are some fun crafts for dads and kids to do together?  

Anything that can be started outdoors and then brought indoors.  Here is a great project to turn a beach weekend into an easy craft.  https://www.facebook.com/Bowdabra/videos/333724368882637
