Father's Day Craft Ideas

Father's Day Craft Ideas - How To Make a Candy Jar

Oh my goodness it has been a fast and furious week. I have been meaning to post more often but have had some things come up. A family friend passed away this week and it has been really sad. No one (not even the friend) knew he was so incredibly sick. He started having a few symptoms, finally went to the doctor and they determined he had cancer basically all over. He hung on for less than a week after diagnosis and sadly passed on.

Gosh! This is turning out to be a depressing post! Let's talk crafting instead!

As you know, Father's Day is fast approaching. I've still got to get the stuff together to make my Dad a shadow box. Just seems like there aren't enough hours in the day!

If your Dad enjoys sitting in the recliner and snacking while watching TV then this may be a neat gift to make for Dad.

Candy Jar

Materials Needed:

Glass Jar with hinged lid
Glass paint
Paint brush
Dad's favorite candy


Buy a glass jar with hinged lid at your local craft store. Using glass paint paint a picture on the jar. Consider painting a fish, golf ball, baseball, or whatever you think your Dad will like.

Be sure to pay attention to washing instructions when considering on glass paint. You may need to point out to Dad that the jar can only be handwashed so the paint job doesn't ruin.

Fill the jar with Dad's favorite candy!

Have Fun!

Father's Day Craft Ideas - Handprint Poem

Sure, most Dads do not enjoy having to scrub off little painted handprints or crayone drawings from the wall or furniture. But one day when that little one is all grown up, ol' Dad will be wishing he could see that little kid handprint just one more time.

How about making a handprint card? That cute little handprint can be cherished forever!

Materials Needed:

One piece of construction paper
Paint (that can easily be washed off child's hand)

Have your child cover his/her handprint in the paint and lay his/her hand on the construction paper. Allow the paint to dry. Be sure to write the date and name of the child on front of the paper.

Also, include this poem with the artwork. I don't know who wrote this poem but it's really cute.

My Handprint

Sometimes you get discouraged
Because I am so small
And always leave my fingerprints
On furniture and walls
But everyday I'm growing big
And soon I'll be very tall
Then all my little handprints
Will be hard to recall
So here's a special handprint
Just so that you can say
this is how my fingers looked
when I placed them here today.

Father's Day Craft Ideas - Make a Pinto Bean Sign

Oh how I loved making these sign as a kid! They are so simple but so fun. They are perfect for ages 4-7 years old. I remember that making this Father's Day Craft could be messy but gosh it was fun being able to play with those pinto beans!

Materials Needed:
1 piece of construction paper
Elmer's glue
1 bag of dried pinto beans

Have the child create a picture on the construction paper using dried pinto beans. They can glue the bean using Elmer's glue. For instance, they could spell out "HI DAD" with the pinto beans or they may want to create a smiley face. Let them be creative!
