Fun crafts for fathers day

Fathers day is this Sunday and I hope you all have an idea what your getting all the special fathers in your life. I think the number one gift this fathers day is going to be the iPad, but what do you get a father that has everything ? Im one for creating special hand made gifts with the kids, it will be fun to do and the kids will be so proud of themselves when they give it to their dad.

Here is a nice frame idea that is very simple to make.

You will need:

A5 card or you can use A4 and cut in half
Stickers and any other embellishments that you have
3 Photographs


Draw two D’s and an A shape onto the card, and cut out. Use a small pair of scissors to cut out the inside of the letters, too (younger children will need adult help or supervision).

Decorate your letters. We simply used stickers but you can use gems, ribbons, sequins, pompoms or anything else from your craft box.

Glue a photo to the back of each letter so that it fills the aperture. Trim any overhanging bits of photo away.

Layer the letters so they overlap slightly, spelling out the word “Dad”, and glue together.

You could laminate the photo frame to make it last, or enclose the whole thing within a larger Perspex frame.

You can also bake some homemade cupcakes and add theses adorable cupcake toppers. You can download them here and print them out.

What do you have planned for fathers day ?
