DIY Father's Day Gift Ideas collage

Every Father’s Day I sit and wrack my brain with what I think would be the perfect gift to give my husband. Would he love his favorite TV series on DVD? Does he want to go somewhere and make a day out of it? Or does he love the cute, homemade gifts I have the kids make him every year?

So I decided I’d come up with a plan this year. Each child gets to pick out something to give him from either the store or online (I can still direct them to things he’s interested in or has asked for) and then we’ll make something for him.

And of course I turn to the internets for great ideas on what to do for Dad. So if you’re looking for great gifts the kids can make Dad for Father’s Day, look no further.

Check out these DIY Father’s Day gift ideas and find something for every age child!

DIY Father's Day Gift Ideas - D-A-D Framed Photos

D-A-D Framed Photos

Whether your child is an infant, toddler, preschooler or school-ager, you can make Dad oh and ah over their cuteness with this D-A-D Framed Photo set.

And this is a super simple project. Just get a print out of the letters D and A (or a wooden version) and have your child(ren) hold the letters. Make sure to choose a different pose for the alternating D’s.

Web now take D-A-D photos every year to add to this frame I bought for my husband’s first Father’s Day. We’ve also used the photos to make custom cards, mousepads, and more!

If you have an older child who isn’t into memory making and would prefer to give dad a gift card to his favorite store, consider having them make a gift card holder.

    These are all great ideas. Last year, I did some glass etching for my hubby for Father’s Day. It’s easy when it done with this paste stuff that I grabbed from Michael’s.
