How To Make a Bookmark


  1. Contact paper
  2. Markers and Crayons
  3. Child picture
  4. Thick paper


  1. The first thing that you need to do is to cut the heavy paper into the size of a bookmark.
  2. Use glue to attach the child’s photo tightly to one ends.
  3. Let the child scribble the word on it.
  4. Seal up the edges with a clean contact paper.
  5. Let the children add colors to it together with crayons and markers.

Make a Stress Ball


  1. Permanent markers
  2. Sand
  3. Surgical balloon or gloves


  • Pour clean sand into the surgical gloves or balloon and make sure it is filled to maximum capacity.
  • Tie up the glove.
  • Allow kids to decorate it using the permanent marker with different colors.
  • Let them scribble something like, ‘The Best Father’ on the turgid fingers. Add smiley with hair and other fantastic decorations.
  • At the glove’s back area, write “Happy Father’s Day”.
  • Make sure that the glove must be filled to brim and fingers stand upright and it must be rid of air so that it will not bust. It is a craft that can serve as a means of relieving stress and for desk decoration.

Hand Print Art


  • Water color paper
  • Gold paint marker
  • Glass
  • Frame
  • Paint


  • Allow the children to pick their choice of acrylic paint
  • Paint their hands with the chosen color
  • Place their hand on the paper and press down carefully
  • Make a bow on their index finger with the gold marker
  • Then write “Dad you are secured on our fingers” in the right corner of the paper.
  • Frame the designs.

Your cool father’s day crafts can be displayed as presentable artwork and can serve as a souvenir that the future generations will adore. As you can see these items are quite inexpensive to make. However, if, for some reason, you decide to do something more extensive, please try to avoid the risk of going into debt; and if you fail to do this and debt has escalated to the point where you’re dealing with debt collectors like dynamic recovery , you can still get your finances reconciled with the help of credit experts.

Make Homemade Biscotti

This can be a perfect father’s day gift. Your entire house will be filled with a fabulous nut and chocolate aroma. Tossing them in a decorative coffee mug and complementing it with the coffee, adds a special touch to it. Biscotti simply means, twice baked. You form the thick dough into two loaves, flatten it and bake it until it browns on the inside, but remains uncooked on the inside. Cut the loaves into long, finger-shaped pieces and bake them again. After cooling, they come out crunchy and rich with flavor. Homemade Biscotti is perfect for dipping in hot coffee or chocolate!

Fishing Equipment

If your Dad enjoys reeling in the fish, there is nothing better than a nice tackle box or fishing accessories. This is particularly a great gift for a newly retired person, who has a lot of time on his hands for the first time in his life. A gift card at your dad’s favorite sporting goods store can also be another way to go, but make sure it is a gift card and not a credit card – as we do not want dad to (unwittingly) drive up debt; if this mistake has been made, you may need to go to this site, to see how you can fix your credit.

Make a Personalized Gift

Sometimes it is best to get your Dad something unique. Something that he can treasure for years to come and that was made or bought with him in mind. Give him something that he will enjoy and treasure. A new family photo-album digitized into a DVD movie, could be a homemade gift that he would love. He could look at memories of the past, without digging into the closet for old dusty photos. If pictures are not his thing, then look for something that he uses every day and get it custom ordered for him.

Yard Accessories

If sitting in the backyard and enjoying the sunshine and fresh air is his favorite pastime, then yard accessories such as fountains, metal art or a birdhouse make great gifts. If your Dad likes to grill out, a new set of tools such as forks, knives and spatulas can make grilling out even more fun. A Home Depot gift card may also meet this end; also be sure to visit http://deletebadcredit.org/shortcuts, if the gift card become a credit issue.

Make Hand Print T-Shirts

Using a plain t-shirt, pick a color of fabric paint and put their hand-print on the shirt. Older siblings or mom can write a special greetings and messages on the plain shirt and put the name of the kids under the prints.

Color and Print Cards

This is considered the coolest and easiest craft to make for Father’s Day. You can make use of construction paper (pleated in half) to make your card, or print out photos from your tablet or PC & glue them together. Rest assured, this simple craft will surely be loved by your Dad.

Not only will these crafts keep you busy, it will also give kid a sense of pride as they created something with their own two hands, for Dad on Father’s Day! : )
