Father’s Day is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than with a gift made straight from the heart?
We’ve rounded up five easy and heartfelt gift ideas that kids can create and present to their dads. These gifts not only showcase their creativity but also the love they have for their fathers.
At Kenmore West Kindy our kindy kids enjoy a variety of arts and craft activities everyday as part of their program goals and development, and each Father’s Day they love to create a little special gift for Dad.
So, to celebrate Father’s Day and get the kids involved this year, we share five special Father’s Day arts and craft activities that kindergarten age kids can do:
1. Make a handprint artwork
Turn your child’s little handprints into a masterpiece. All you need is some paint, a canvas or sturdy paper, and a touch of imagination. Have your child dip their hands in the paint and press them onto the canvas. Let it dry, and you’ll have a personalised handprint artwork that Dad can proudly display.
2. Build a DIY tie rack
If Dad often wears a tie, then why not build a do-it-yourself (DIY) tie rack. All you and your little one needs to do is grab a wooden board, paint it in Dad’s favourite colours, and attach hooks or pegs. Let your kindy kid decorate the board with their creativity – they can use stickers and drawings. This practical and personalised gift will keep Dad’s ties organised and add a touch of his child’s artistic flair to his morning routine.
3. Pot plant seedling
Embrace your child’s green thumb by planting a seed in a pot this Father’s Day. It’s a lovely way to celebrate the growth and special bond between fathers and children. Simply choose a plant that’s easy to grow, like a sunflower or a basil plant. Decorate a small pot or container, plant the seed and give the potted plant to Dad and watch it grow over time together.
4. Customised coffee cup
Put a smile on Dad’s face each morning with a customised coffee cup. Have your child draw their favourite memory with Dad, or write a heartfelt message using some markers. Every sip of coffee will remind Dad of the special bond he shares with his little one.
5. Handwritten storybook
Encourage your kindy kids’ storytelling skills by helping them create a personalised storybook for Dad. They can illustrate their tales and adventures together, making it a unique keepsake. Bind the pages together, and Dad will have a cherished storybook to read whenever he wants to be reminded of the magical moments they’ve shared.
So, there you have it! Five easy, fun and creative arts and craft gift ideas that kindergarten aged kids can make this Father’s Day, which will melt their Dad’s heart.
