Father's Day will be here before you know it, and if you're anything like me, you like to be prepared early. Except I get so busy helping everyone else become prepared that we usually finally get our act together the night before. Although, since I make shirts, our wardrobes are always ready in plenty of time.
Without further ado, let's dive into the 6 Father's Day crafts I've selected that are easy enough for young toddlers to do, but crafty enough for older kids, too.
I'm BIG on any way to keepsake a kids handprint or footprint. Anything that permanently reminds us of how small they used to be is so sweet and sentimental to me since they grow so fast. This handprint on a baseball idea from Sunny Day Family is one of the cutest and most unique ideas I've seen online. We are going to do something similar this year, but with a football and white ink instead. I'll report back to update once we do it! View the full tutorial HERE along with a free printable poem!
So, if you know me in real life, follow me on social media, or shopped my shirts, you probably know that I'm mustache obsessed.
Anything baby and kid related with a mustache - I'm all about. I even do a mustache themed birthday shirt every year for my youngest son (I know you'll be wondering, so I'll post a pic below) with his name and age with a mustache on it. I brought him home in the cutest little mustache sleeper outfit and took his first photo's in our production bodysuit wearing the cutest little mustache moccasin baby shoes.
Anyway, you can see why when I saw this mustache themed Father's Day gift bag over at Marvelous Mommy, I had to add it to the list! What would you stuff this bag with? I think we're probably filling this bag with Cliff Bars, Mambas, and some dad coupons. Head HERE to view the whole tutorial, complete with free printable.
(Proof of my stache obsession... My boyfriend and I have matching shirts and since we do the same theme every year, we wear the same shirts! haha):
When I saw this "Hooked on Daddy" handmade Father's Day card I knew I had to include it in this Father's Day craft post because it goes perfectly with our Liv & Co. "I Hooked Daddy's Heart" infant bodysuit and kids shirt. Pair this card with our shirt for every fishing enthusiast dad and he'll know you really put thought into his gift this Father's Day! Even if dad doesn't like to fish, it's still the sweetest card. Not to mention, it uses your child's handprint, and you know how I am about handprints ;) . Head HERE for the full tutorial. There's even an instructional video!

Oh. My. Goodness. All the heart eyes for this footprint craft! Salt dough crafts are so fun for kids because they are a great sensory craft. I let my son play with the dough, smash it down with his hands, etc. In addition to it's sensory benefits, it also allows them to paint, which my little man LOVES to do. I originally saw this on a Valentine's Day post, but thought it'd be an excellent handmade Father's Day gift for dad! You can mix up the colors however you want. Find out how to make it HERE.
Don't hate me, but I have no idea what the obsession with golf is. I find it to be SO boring, but it sure did inspire the cutest handmade Father's Day card from Crafty Morning! Find out how to make this "You Are The Best Dad By Par" Father's Day card HERE.

You're the vest dad! How cute is this?! This is another sweetheart of a card from Crafty Morning. I know you're probably thinking this is out of your league, but I swear it's not. I thought the same thing until I made ours with my son. Crafty Morning provides very detailed instructions HERE. Crafty Morning has tons of handmade card ideas for all occasions, so make sure you check those out.
Well, I know I said 6 craft ideas for Father's Day, but then I stumbled upon this one and knew I HAD to include it, but I had already made my graphic and composed my post, so rather than calling this #7, let's just call it a bonus, K? I love the sharpie coffee mug idea, and believe me, we've made several, but I never thought to put letters on the mug and let the kids scribble around it. I thought this was super cute and creative. Find out more about how to make this DIY coffee mug gift idea for dad HERE.
Of course the kiddo's need cute shirts to give dad his gifts in, like this Daddy's My Hero baby bodysuit and kids t shirt for Father's Day from Liv & Co. Get yours HERE.
