Fathers work hard every day, whether they are busy working outside the home or helping inside the home with childcare and household duties. Show the men in your life (Dad, Grandpa, Uncle or a friend) some appreciation with these easy Father’s Day ideas that kids can help with and make Dad feel extra special.
As much as I wish my daughter would stay little forever, time keeps going and she keeps growing. Document those tiny hands while you can with a fun handprint craft. Grab some paint and paper and stamp away. You can easily turn the handprints into a fish, superhero, dinosaur or even flames on a grill. Remember to date and initial the masterpiece so years from now you will know how old they were (and which kiddo!)
Give Dad some IOUs for things he likes to do or things the kiddos can help with throughout the year. A coupon to mow the grass, help fix his car or a day of golf is a great way to keep the celebration going all year long!
Paint a picture frame
Let your kids’ imaginations go wild. Grab an unfinished frame from a local hobby store and some paints and let them create a masterpiece. Print off a cute picture of your littles and you will have an amazing keepsake for Dad’s office.
Cook a meal
Dads love a good meal. Have your little ones help make Dad’s favorite food – maybe it’s pancakes or a cake. If Dad’s favorites are more savory, bust out the grill for some hamburgers or steaks. The youngest kids can help with pouring ingredients, stirring and getting items from the pantry.
Show the special dad figure in your kids’ lives some love and appreciation this Father’s Day with these easy activities that the kids can help make.
