Last Minute Father’s Day gifts–Kid projects


The kids and I took a break from the pool and peach recipes yesterday and took a trip to Michael’s for some last minute father’s day gift ideas.

I had a few ideas in mind but was also hoping to get some inspiration while there.
My first thought was for the kids to make a card that also served as a “coupon” for an activity to do with dad.

They had a value pack of 25 plain cards and envelopes for $2.50. I had the kids look through the sticker section for ideas of what they may want to do with dad. You can skip this step all together and have the kids simply color the front of the cards.


Have them decorate the front with the stickers/theme of activity and then write the event inside. For example good for one day of hitting golf balls, or helping you around the house.


The stickers out right now are so nice that you could even make a set of notecards as a gift. Simply pick a sticker sheet, add a few stickers to the front and tie a ribbon around a few decorated cards and envelopes and you have a nice and inexpensive gift.

We also found these fun and inexpensive things at michaels that can be completed in just a few minutes.

Cover Drink Cozies with foam stickers or ribbon. The cozies were only 66 cents each. You can also use a lighter color and have the kids simply draw something with sharpie markers.

Mug and tile sets for only 1 to 2 dollars each. This mug set came with a way to attach a photo.

Hopefully our Dad will enjoy these truly hand made gifts.
