3 Easy DIY Father’s Day Crafts For Toddlers
Following In Daddy’s Footprints
Handprint and footprint crafts are so personal as gifts. As my kid gets bigger, I love looking back on how small her hands and feet once were. Try this adorable following in Daddy’s Footprint Craft. Your favorite Dad’s face will light up when he sees his footprint next to his child’s. If you want to keep this idea a surprise from dad, you can paint the bottom of one of his old shoes to make a print, then add your kid’s footprint to the project.

Painting Father’s Day Project
Some of the best projects my child and I have made together have been when we were creative and painted, usually on big paper! Check out this fun Father’s Day painting project! Start by laying down circles for each of your family members, and the outline of the word Dad. Then let your kid get creative and paint! This project doesn’t need any special supplies. As long as you have paint and paper, you should be able to recreate it. Even better, this project is a great Father’s Day craft for kids of multiple ages to make together. Fun!
Happy Father’s Day Trophy
I love the idea of making this DIY Trophy For Dad for Father’s Day! This cute craft is also the perfect opportunity to use some of those loose ends in your craft bin. I know you have half used bags of foam stars and colored beads just like I do! I love Father’s Day crafts I can make from items I already have. Start by cutting out the shape of a trophy out of cardboard. Then let your toddler go crazy gluing an assortment of dried pasta, foam stickers, beads, or anything other interesting shaped babbles you happen to have. (If you’re out, hit up the dollar store!) Make sure to leave enough room in the center for a cute picture. Then spray paint the entire project gold, and glue on your picture. Instant trophy, I love it! I make this with my kiddo for Dad this year. Shhh, don’t tell him ok?
So will you make any of these Father’s Day crafts for toddlers with your favorite little? What do you have planned for your favorite Dad for Father’s Day? I want to hear in the comments!
