Father’s Day is a perfect holiday for homemade gifts, they can be so much more personal and meaningful than store bought gifts and are a great way to get the kids involved. Plus, they can be very inexpensive which is never a bad thing. I can’t tell you what Matilda and I are doing for Ian this year (He’ll read the post and the secret will be out) but here are some other fun ideas.
1. “Pop” bottles: I made this for Ian last year, when I was pregnant with Tilly. It was super easy and he loved it!
2. Coupon Card: This one is great for older kids. Have them create a little book of coupons that dad can turn in for things like “One free car wash” or “One batch of chocolate chip cookies”.
3. Grill Master: Daddies love to grill (at least all the daddies I know) and grilling requires a good apron. Bust out the fabric paint and make it personal.

4. Get Cooking: Cook up dad’s favorite meal and have the little waiters /waitresses serve it to him. Decorate the table with some drawings or art projects to make it even more special.
5. Desk Decorator: Does daddy work in an office? Have the kids paint or draw a series of small pictures and put them in some matching frames, they can sit on a windowsill or bookshelf and brighten up the office. Plus, dad will get to show them off to everyone.
What is your favorite way to celebrate Father’s Day?
