Let’s face it, men can be hard to buy for. Socks and handkerchiefs anyone? Which is probably why Father’s Day has become a festival of random impersonal gadgets: desk tidies, exotic shaving paraphernalia not to mention the novelty golf accessories.
But we know men really just want to know their kids love them. So what about helping your kids create something homemade from the heart just for Dad?
These five Father’s Day crafts are bound to melt even the most blokey bloke’s heart. There are some great ideas for Father’s Day cards and some gorgeous personalised Father’s Day crafts plus each idea comes with a video tutorial how-to.
We’ve even included a digital art card idea for kids who prefer computers to crayons AND some Father’s Day poems to write on your homemade cards.
All you have to do is get the kids together around the dining table after school, add cardboard, glue, scissors and paints and you can create some original homemade gifts for this year’s Father’s Day.
Here are our top five Father’s Day craft ideas.
Make a digital art card without photoshop
You don’t need to be a computer whiz to make this impressive digital art card. You can personalise it with one of our Father’s Day poems or what about writing out the lyrics to Dad’s favourite song?
Make a handprint scroll artwork
Your kids will love getting messy in the name of love. Let them make handprints for Dad and then turn it into a lovely personalised keepsake that will remind Dad how tiny their hands once were.
Following in Daddy’s shoes artwork
It’s worth investing in a small canvas for this one. Just don’t use Dad’s favourite pair of dress shoes!
Make Dad a keys and coins container with FREE printable
This one is very practical – who doesn’t love a coin container? Get the kids to colour it in for Dad, then help them construct it. Voila! Keys and coins sorted. It’s win-win.

Use an outline of your children’s hands to create this sweet card. It will quite literally show Dad how much they love him.
