I’ve have been trawling the web looking for ideas for things for the children to make for Fathers day, and I’ve found some great stuff. So, there’s no excuse for buying another pair of comedy socks this year, get creative, which is your favourite?
Fathers day notepad
This personalised note block is my favourite, so simple and yet so effective, a great fathers day gift. This is Martha Stewart craft which I found at 24/7 Moms.
Last year, for fathers day, the kids and I made my husband one of these fingerprint trees, it’s easy to do and very effective. Simply draw the tree outline and get the kids to add the leaves using their fingerprints, hey presto a family tree. The hand print tree is also gorgeous and would make a lovely card.
You could do something similar in half an hour – use a glue gun or super glue to stick a little plastic model/button/coin to cufflink bases, available from most shops that sell jewellery-making supplies. Original source Star Wars cufflinks
Personalised Dad labels
Turn Dad’s favorite foods into a custom gift for Father’s Day by using Martha Stewart’s clip-art designs to make old-fashioned labels. If you fancy giving this ago have a look at the Martha Stewart site for instructions and clip art.
These photos are so beautiful they gave me a lump in my throat so they’re a sure winner to bring a tear to Daddy’s eye. These have been done using 3D letters but you could get a similar effect with large letters cut from card. We have the most amazing surroundings here in Dubai, so why not try them on the beach or in front of the Burj Khalifa. Unfortunately I can’t find the original source for this idea, but well done to the creator.
Which one are you going to try?
