Moms, Teachers, Kids – we know you’re already thinking about Father’s Day gifts yet, so we wanted to help you get a head start on making the occasion extra special! We searched the web for the most unique and inspired craft ideas to make Dad handmade gifts he’ll love and keep. We hope these ideas ignite your creative side (you can head to your nearest West Pack store to stock up on craft supplies).
Dad, You Rock
Cheesy? Maybe. Cute? Definitely.
We found this adorable idea on Doodleandstitch.com and it’s actually easier than it looks to make your own DIY Father’s Day Gift. The site details exactly how to make this oh-so-stylish craft, but the concept is simple enough to make your own version of this clever idea.
When it comes to rock art, there’s actually lots of ideas you can run with to make a creative and heartfelt gift for Dad.
PS. All West Pack Lifestyle stores, and many West Pack Express stores, keep a range of frames that you can choose from. We also keep a huge selection of stationery, googly eyes, permanent markers, as well as plain and colour papers and cardboard. The only thing you need to look for is the perfect rock to symbolise Dad and you!
Hands down, this could be the sweetest Father’s Day gift for a new Dad. This may take a little preparation, but the results will definitely be worth the extra effort. This idea can affordably be made with West Pack Lifestyle’s small polystyrene letters (R4.90 each) or medium size letters for R8.90 each. All you need to do is get your little one to strike a pose like Little Kings Nest, Ashley Green and Involvery did, and you have a Father’s Day memory and gift that will be hard to top in the years to come.
Hand and Feet Art Inspiration
Following In My Daddy’s Footsteps
This idea is perfect for creches and schools to do with the kids and send home to Dad for a Father’s Day Gift (or do at home with Mom, Granny or your Nanny). Sentimental Dads will love and treasure this gift as a special keepsake from their first few years as a Father.
All you need is a Boot for the footprint, craft paint, a paint brush to write the message with, and any other craft goodies you want to personalise this gift idea. Inspired by Craftymorning.com
RAWR THE BEST DAD
We can never get tired of creative ideas to use hand and feet for clever Father’s Day handmade cards and pictures. Children have the cutest hand and feet when they’re small, which make special keepsakes for parents, its fun for the kids, and they make great art projects.
