DIY Crafts to Give to Dad for Father’s Day:


1. No Sew Fleece Blanket

One of dad’s favorite past times is watching sports! Most will even sit outside in the cold and rain to see a game winning point! Your kids can make their dad a Fleece Blanket that is perfect for any cold day. You can buy fleece at your local craft store. It will be a blast to pick out which design your dad will love best! Once you have your perfect print follow “Snapguide” to tie your blanket!


2. Paper Weights

Paper weights have been in use for hundreds of years. The only problem is they can often times be dull. Your children can make a fun, colorful paper weight by painting rocks! You can make this craft easier by purchasing the Creativity for Kids rock painting kit. The kit will come with the rocks, paint and brushes so all you have to focus on is making vibrant paper weights for Dad. To really customize the paper weight for dad, check out this post for ideas and inspiration.
