No matter if it's Father's Day, Christmas, his birthday or just plain randomness: nothing makes dad happier than something made with their own hands! Here are some DIY projects your children can create together for Father. Create a jigsaw puzzle together. This activity will not only provide fun family time together, but will be an unforgettable keepsake of your memories together. 1. Catapult If your father loves DIY projects, this catapult craft will surely delight him! Easy and engaging to create, it provides an opportunity to learn about physics while working fine motor skills at the same time! Crafting this craft requires two popsicle sticks, a bottle cap, and string for holding whatever object you launch (you could also use wadded up paper or small unbreakable toys). Have your children rubber band one side of each stick together leaving the other free for bending and movement before glueing one of their bottle caps onto one stick - you could get creative here by trying various types of bottle caps or raiding your recycling bin for lids from jars or pill bottles to try this activity! Add an extra special touch by having children decorate a catapult with stickers or craft supplies to match the dad in their life, such as stickers or paint. They could even write why their dad is special! Do something fun and educational this Father's Day for Dad that requires only simple household materials - like cereal boxes! Create an exciting, colorful terrarium as an attractive decoration in his home or office! This easy, mess-free science experiment will put a smile on his face. 2. Airplane If your children love airplane crafts, this easy airplane craft will surely delight. Younger children will enjoy practicing fine motor skills by applying paint and placing their hand on paper to create colorful planes they can display proudly; older ones can enjoy trying to decipher the flight code printed on its wings - which helps with letter recognition! If you're searching for an extra sentimental Father's Day craft, this printable present may just be what's needed to show him just how much you care and appreciate him. Just fill in the prompts with your kids before placing it into a small photo album or handmade present box as a memento he'll treasure forever! Your kids will love this creative use for plastic bottles: an airplane craft that doubles as a piggy bank! Simply add a coin-sized slit to the top and they can use it to deposit their savings for treats like movies and snacks! For something different, create similar airplanes out of wooden clothespins and popsicle-style craft sticks; Making Life Blissful also provides instructions on making an origami version that's more challenging but great for older kids! 3. Wheelbarrow Kids can create fun Father's Day crafts to show Dad just how much they care and appreciate him on this special day, such as making a dog Father's Day craft or creating an indoor catapult from paper plate ties or catapult balls. There are even projects that double up as DIY Father's Day gifts such as creating decorated photo frames that list all the reasons Dad is loved. These activities are perfect for the whole family and can be completed together or individually depending on your child's age and abilities. For instance, an old wheelbarrow can be transformed into garden art like a frog or bear sculptures using paint, glue and tools; or you could build one from wood for use as furniture in your home. Other DIY projects to try at home include crafting a birdhouse from an old wheelbarrow and creating colorful planters from clay. Plus, an old wheelbarrow bucket could become an attractive tool holder around the home! Some of these activities are an excellent way to introduce simple machines like wheels and axles or levers to your children, as well as helping them practice writing or drawing while having fun hands-on activities with dad. Even without access to an extra wheelbarrow, fun DIY activities can still be created using everyday household items such as cardboard boxes or pieces of plywood. 4. Backyard Cinema Backyard cinemas may conjure images of drive-in theaters from years gone by, but creating your own home cinema with just a few DIY tweaks is easier than you think. Simply arrange some comfortable seating arrangements and stock the concession stand with snacks and refreshments suitable for kids as well as adults alike! White screens are essential to providing quality viewing, yet there are numerous low-tech and more permanent solutions available to you. You could try making do with household linens or opting for more permanent solutions like PVC pipes to build one yourself and save both money and time; for instance Effortless Style has an in-depth tutorial which walks you through this process step-by-step, including guidance for selecting materials. Or use the DIY idea from Toolbox Divas to turn any surface - from sheets or walls - into a movie screen! All it requires are white fabric sheets, tape, and wood frames - as well as a smartphone to project video images onto them. Indoor chairs make ideal seating for a backyard theater. Arrange them in rows to emulate a classic theater setup and add soft throws or cushions for additional comfort. Use a trellis to hang paper popcorn bags for self-serve snacking that won't disturb those watching the film; and don't forget an ice-filled cooler packed with drinks and snacks during your movie viewing! 5. Decluttering If Dad's house feels disorganized, taking on decluttering projects together on a weekend can be an enjoyable bonding experience. Before beginning, create a list of rooms needing decluttered and estimate how long each one should take - this will keep you on task and get things completed efficiently. Also be sure to gather supplies such as trash bags, markers, boxes and labels so as not to have to stop during an important project to run to the store or retrieve an essential component that was forgotten! Donating items that no longer fulfill their intended function and starting a "box of memories" with personal mementos that will bring back happy memories over the years are two excellent ways to donate unwanted goods. Custom cutting boards make an excellent gift for a cook or BBQ enthusiast, and can feature their monogram or favorite quote to show just how important he is to the family. Engrave his favorite photo or make him an original puzzle! Additionally, children can create photo collages featuring some of their most memorable memories with Dad for this fun Father's Day craft from Homemade Gifts Made Easy. 6. Fishing Father's Day is just around the corner, so now is an opportune time to start planning some creative crafts that your kids can make with you that will make their dad feel extra-special. From DIY photo frames to custom coupon books, these craft ideas allow children to express their creativity while giving something truly memorable that will stand the test of time. Children will love making these DIY owl cards for the special men in their lives! By learning shapes and colors as well as practicing fine motor skills to draw, kids can create cards sure to bring smiles from dad! And the final product will surely make him laugh! Dads can often be hard to shop for, so why not give something they'll actually use? These DIY projects are perfect for anyone who enjoys grilling or beer drinking and can be completed quickly in a day. Create an unforgettable and practical gift by turning old bottle caps into functional fridge magnets. Make the project extra personal by including a message such as, "Love from the family."
