Top Ten Easy Father's Day Gift / Craft Ideas

All you need for these easy Father's Day projects are felt tip pens, paper, cardboard,
old photos -- or even one of Dad's underhirts -- to create a Father's Day gift just for him!

You can add a few gold stars and use felt tip markers or crayons to write "Best Dad Award" on the construction paper. Then glue the construction paper to the cardboard and give it to dad on Father's Day morning!

2. Make a special place mat for Father's Day. Take a piece of plain material and cut it to about the size of a big cereal box. Write: "For the Best Dad" with felt tip markers and put it under his plate as a special surprise.

3. Get a grownup's help to bake a cake, or have mom get your dad's favorite cake at the grocery store and cut it in the shape of a tie. Top it with Dad's favorite frosting and decorate it with gummy bears, jellybeans or licorice sticks so it looks like a real tie. He'll say it's the best Father's Day tie ever!

4. Ask a grownup to scan photos of you and your Dad doing things together and print them out. Paste them to a poster board. Use felt tip markers or crayons to write out the headline: "Why I love Dad."

5. Make a memory book for dad. Do the same thing as for the big poster board card. Ask a grownup to scan photos of you and your Dad doing things together and print them out. Use plain white paper and fold it in half. Paste all of the pictures on the paper and get a grownup to staple the pages in the middle where they are folded. On the front page use a felt tip marker to write out the headline "Me and My Dad".

6. Make Dad feel special with a Father's Day baseball cap. Use felt tip markers to write or draw on the hat. Good suggestions: "My Dad is # 1" or "World's Best Dad!"

7. Make a Father's Day shirt for dad to match his cap. Take on of his undershirts - make sure it's clean! - and write or draw on it. You can say the same things as on the hat, or other think of some other special things to say.

8. Here's another idea for one of Dad's undershirts: Have a grown up help pouring non-toxic water color into a shallow plate, then dip your hands into the paint. Now (and here comes thr fun part) press your hands into the undershirt. Once the paint is dry, use a felt tip marker to write the headline: Most HANDsome Dad!" .

9. Give Dad a Father's Day 'Gift Certificate' or an I.O.U. made from colored construction paper. Good suggestions: "I promise to ... Wash the Car next Saturday......Mow the Lawn tomorrow." If you make it a promise that you will be able to keep it will be a very special gift.

10. Give your father the best gift of all. You won't need any pens or paper for this one... the first thing on Father's Day morning, give Dad a big smushy Father's Day hug before breakfast and tell him how great he is! He might not show it, because sometimes Dads don't make a big deal about how they feel, but he will be smiling inside.
