You can make Father’s Day crafts with kids using paint, and paint is inexpensive so these gifts will save you money as well. This article will provide you with instructions on creating fun gifts for Dad on his special day.

Picture Frame

A picture frame is easy to make and decorate with children. For this project, you will need paint, a palette, newspaper, paintbrushes, cardboard and scissors. Help kids cover the work area with newspaper. Then pour some paint onto the palette.

Cut the cardboard into a rectangle, and then cut the center of the rectangle out to make a frame large enough to fit a photo. Let the kids paint all over the frame. Young kids can cover the frame with bright colors, and older kids can make patterns or write messages. When the paint has dried, a photo will complete this craft.

Coffee Mug

A coffee mug can be easily painted to be unique, and you do these crafts with kids by using special ceramic paint markers. For this craft, simply cover the work area with newspaper. Then help kids paint the chosen coffee mug for Dad with the paint markers. Kids can paint designs, write a message or just color it all over. Follow the directions for the paint markers because they may have to be baked to seal the paint for dishwasher safety.

King Crown

Another easy and fun craft for dads on Father’s Day is a crown. For this project, you will need paper, paint, scissors, gems, a pencil, glue and tape. Start by helping kids cut the paper so it is long enough to fit on Dad’s head. Then use a pencil to design the shape of the crown. Points, stars and clovers are popular patterns for crowns.

Help kids cut the crown out of the paper, and use paint and gems to decorate the entire crown. You can also write, “King for a Day” or “№1 Dad” on the crown if you like. When the paint is dry, tape the ends of the crown together.

Making Father’s Day gifts with your kids is a fun way to craft and provide the whole family with long lasting memories.
