Passport to Summer Challenge Day 1: Father's Day Surprise!
The best gifts are from the heart! Handmade gifts are the most memorable especially when you receive them from kids. Today's challenge is to have your kids craft Father's Day gifts for their dad and/or grandfathers.
Here are some crafty gift ideas:
Personalized mug- You'll need any color sharpie and a porcelain mug you don't mind permanently altering. If you don't have a mug you can find super cheap mugs from the dollar store that will work too. Have your kids draw or write messages on the surface of the mug and then bake it in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Let them cool completely before using or washing.
A "piece of my heart" frame- Either buy an inexpensive puzzle at the store or grab a puzzle from your house that's hardly used or missing pieces and turn it into a special gift. Have your kids color or paint the puzzle pieces. Then help them arrange the pieces to make a frame. Your kids can then either add a picture of themselves or color inside of the puzzle frame to make a special artwork for dad.
Popsicle stick frame- Let your kids color or paint popsicle sticks and glue them together to make a frame. Once the frames are dry have your kids decorate them adding their personal touch. They can use glitter, stickers, pom poms, or whatever else you have at home. Add a picture to the frame and write the date on the back!
Do your kids usually craft gifts or cards for people? What have been some of the handmade gifts they've made in the past? Share pictures if you have them!
