Father’s Day is next Sunday, June 17th. Dads do so much for their families every day of the year, and we love getting to celebrate them on Father’s Day every year. If you’re looking for some kid-friendly crafts for the dads or granddads in your life, you’ve come to the right place. Check out these unique, DIY gift ideas that your kids will love making for their dad.
Is Dad a coffee lover, mug collector, or both? Make his new favorite mug using a white mug, craft paint, and painters tape. Use the tape to block out the word Dad or whatever design you’d like. Then simply paint the rest of the mug, let it dry, and peel off the tape to reveal your masterpiece.
