Fathers Day is fast approaching and if you haven’t already figured out what your kids should make for their dad, you’ve come to the right place.
These gifts are a slam dunk for any athlete’s Dad for Fathers Day and are simple to recreate yourself. Do your kids also call your husband coach? Consider number four on the list.
This adorable idea is great for the little ones (mostly because their handprints will fit best on the ball) and could be done for a variety of sports like soccer, football, and even baseball. With just some acrylic paint and an adorable toddler, Morgan over at Sweet Stitches creates this easy Fathers Day gift.
Want more, cute little hand print gift ideas? This baseball inspired plate features your little one’s prints and a sweet message for dad. All you’ll need is a plate (even from the dollar store!), some paint for ceramics, and an oven. The source for this DIY is currently unknown but you can find a similar tutorial here.
Decorated Mason Jar with Team Tickets
Here is a great way to present Dad with some sweet tickets to see one of his favorite teams. Paint a mason jar to look like a baseball or Dad’s favorite sport and add some tickets. Even if they are for a local team’s game, he will still appreciate the outing with friends or family watching a game he loves. Check out Home Talk’s full tutorial here.
For the Coach Dad
A father-child relationship is always special but when he’s also the coach, it becomes that much more meaningful. This Father’s Day let your kids say thank you to their dad and coach with this painted wood plaque featuring a heartwarming picture and adorable phrase. Some stencils, paint, wood, and picture frame should do the trick but if you’re not up to the challenge, you can purchase this gift on Etsy from MadiKay Designs.
A Simple Thank You
Perhaps you like the idea of using an actual ball to give as a gift but have an older child who has outgrown handprint art. Instead of handprints, consider asking them to write a message to Dad explaining just how much they love and appreciate him.
Now that you are feeling inspired and crafty, get your kids together and create something wonderful for their Dad this year. Playing a sport is such a powerful way for a lot of children to connect to their dads. I know it was for me. Encourage your kids to show their appreciation for this special man in their live by hand making a gift he will cherish.
