Even you could help your children plan a lovely little surprise for their dad’s birthday. It is amazingly easy to make some of these gifts. Kids can make one of them or all, and gift them throughout the day. While Sarah went ahead with the ‘World’s Best Dad Mug’ listed below, Timothy did the bookmark gift and slipped it into the book his dad was currently reading (The Black Box, by Michael Connelly). This was enough to put a smile on their father’s face all day!
World’s Best Dad Mug
All you will need is a white ceramic mug and a sharpie. Kids can write a ‘Happy Father’s Day’ message or anything else that they would like to say.
This is a super easy and thoughtful gesture. It requires a brown paper bag, colored markers, and cords or ribbons. Flatten the paper bag and use the markers to draw or just write a message on it.
This will be a lovely surprise for dads who love reading. Kids can slip in a handmade bookmark into the pages of a book they are currently reading. Cut handmade paper into a rectangle. The standard size of a bookmark is 2” x 6”. You can scribble a message or draw something on it.
Father’s Birthday Cord Organizer
Dads love gadgets and these gadgets come with loops of cords that can be all over the place. These cords can be organized easily with a handmade organizer. Kids can make life a tad orderly for fathers with this. Round up a few cardboard toilet rolls. Next, you will need ribbons.
Father’s Birthday Mini-Book
At the end of the day, kids can huddle together with their father to go through a mini-book of messages and photographs. To make this mini-book, you will need any old pizza box, glue, a pair of scissors, a hole punch, color paper and a ring binder. And, of course, depending on the size of the book, photographs in the appropriate dimensions.
