Elementary + Preteen Craft: Homemade Gifts for 6 Different Kinds of Dads

We found 6 easy crafts you can lead kids to make for Father’s Day in your children’s ministry. No two dads are the same! Some work in an office, some love to golf. Some can do repairs, while others are great in the kitchen.


1. My Dad Rocks!

We love how easy this craft is! And what dad wouldn’t want this paperweight for his office? Let your kids rock their dad’s Father’s Day!

2. Decorated Golf Balls

Golf enthusiast dads will love a set of these for their next game.

Handyman dads will love thinking about their kids every time they grab for this tool.

4. Father’s Day Keepsake

For that dad whose baby has captured his heart (and what dad doesn’t fit that?), make this salt-dough footprint heart. This idea comes from diyready.com for Mother’s Day ideas, but we like this for Father’s Day too!

5. The Key to Dad’s Heart

We like this keychain. It’s simple and it’ll fit in a pocket for the dad who loves to drive.

6. Best Dad Hands Down

What father doesn’t love his children’s handprints? This is a great gift for the dad who likes to cook or grill.
