17 GREAT Father’s Day Gifts for Kids to Make

| June 4, 2014 | 8 Comments

Father’s Day is rapidly approaching and fathers are notoriously difficult to buy, let alone make for.. let alone make with the KIDS FOR! I do believe that a lovely homemade card and breakfast in bed is often quite enough for Father’s Day or Mother’s Day.. but a small gift never goes amiss either, right? Or make these Father’s Day Gifts for Dad’s Birthday or for Dad at Christmas.. afterall, gifts don’t get any easier throughout the year! Here are some of my favourite ideas found around the web – the gifts remain “traditional” – from key chains, to photo gifts, but I do hope that these father’s day gifts are a little different and quirky and that you and the children are inspired to have ago. And don’t forget, with very young children a hand or footprint is always a wonderful keepsake gift, as is a hand drawn card with the first “Dad” scribbles in them. It doesn’t have to be complicated to be special!
