Father’s Day is right around the corner. I will be the first to admit I am always right on top of it as far as having the kids make Mother’s Day gifts, but for some reason Dad tends to get overlooked in the handmade department. Well not this year!
Dads really do love getting projects from their kiddos just as much as we Moms do. So please, please, please… don’t overlook Dad, Grandpa, Uncle or whomever on Father’s Day because you think that guys might not care that much about getting kid crafts as gifts. They will cherish those little projects for years to come just as much as you do!
With that in mind I scoured around the web a bit and reached out to a few friends to come up with a little list of ideas to get you started. There’s still plenty of time before Father’s Day to pull off any one of these projects.
