Father’s Day Keepsake Crafts
With Father’s Day approaching, you’re surely looking for lovely gift ideas for dad and grandpa. In this post, you can find easy handprint and footprint Father’s Day art and craft ideas for your kids. For some of them, all you will need are paper, paint and your child’s hand or foot which makes them a perfect last minute Father’s Day gift!
We love handprint crafts for kids because they are cute, quick and in most cases, simple for both kids and adults alike. Following handprint and fingerprint Father’s Day crafts can be created with kids as young as babies up to school age and some of them are even perfect for siblings to make together.
Print or cut out the shape of a Father’s Day Tie and decorate with fingerprint polka dots or color in with markers or paint.
Coffee or tea loving fathers and grandfathers will cherish a Fingerprint Daddy & Me Mug they receive from their child or grandchild. Simply begin with a light-colored plain mug and add dishwasher-safe paint hand and fingerprints to decorate as you see fit.
Do you know ‘Guess How Much I Love You’ by Sam McBratney? You can read this book for inspiration and then engage kids to create their own ‘Guess How Much I love You’ Craft with a loving message for their dad.
Don’t forget that you also have the option of footprint projects for Father’s Day to make with your kids. You aren’t limited to handprints! In case your children prefer not to use paint on their feet, you can also trace their footprints with pencil or pen and let them color it by themselves.
For kids who would love to be just like their dad when they grow up, consider a “Following in your Footsteps” themed Father’s Day Card. It will make a wonderful keepsake dad will treasure for years to come.
As you can see, we gathered a variety of awesome Father’s Day arts and crafts using children’s handprints, fingerprints, or footprints. You can find a perfect match for a Father’s Day gift for both dad and grandpa to match their hobbies and interests, from fishing and hunting to riding motorcycles.
