Need a cute, handmade, idea for a Father's Day gift?  Here are some crafts that children can make (or help make) for their dad. What are your children going to give their dad as a Father’s Day Gift? It’s always the thought that counts, not the amount of money that was spent on the gift. Here are some cute, handmade, Father’s Day crafts that kids can make. Little kids might a little help from mom.

4 Father’s Day Crafts for Kids

Father’s Day Cutout Frame
Martha Stewart has a downloadable template that you can use to make a photo frame that says “DAD”. You will need some card stock for the frame, a few paper clips, and some adorable photos of the kids.

Children who are able to use scissors can cut around the letters in the frame. Older kids might be able to cut out the inside parts. (Or, mom can help with that). Have your children help select the photos that will go in the frame. Bend two paper clips and attach them to the back of the frame, near the bottom. This will help the frame to stand up.

Decorated Rock Paper Weight
Better Homes and Gardens has a simple Father’s Day craft that can be adapted to fit the skill level of any child. All you need is a smooth rock and some fabric scraps.

Kids can use a paintbrush to paint some decoupage onto the stone. Press a fabric scrap onto it, and smooth it out. The same method can be used with decorative scrapbook paper instead of fabric. Another option is to let your kid paint the stone with different colors of acrylic paint.

Wallet Art
All Kids Network has a simple idea for a Father’s Day gift. Children can paint, or draw, on a credit card sized piece of paper or card stock. They suggest you laminate the finished artwork, to make it a bit more sturdy.

Many dads carry photos of their children in their wallet. This gift gives a dad the opportunity to carry, and show off, their child’s beautiful artwork. Check out the photos on the All Kids Network website for some cute examples.

Handprint Art
Babies grow so fast! Believe it or not, babies can make art (with some help from a parent). All you need is some card stock. Cardboard will do. Gently press your baby’s hand into some child-friendly paint. Pat that hand onto the card stock. When it dries, put it into a frame. It is sure to bring a smile to the face of any new dad.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
