“Great Dads Make Us Glad”

Craft Ideas for Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day! While cards may not be as flowery or fancy as those we create for Mother’s Day, there are a lot of fun items that lend themselves to dear old dad. There are definitely abundant options when it comes to more “masculine” elements: tools, camping, golf, cars…here are a few possible suggestions to consider when coming up with fun and simple crafts for fathers. Add personal and creative flair as suits you, and have fun creating trinkets and presents for dads!

Note: Encourage students to make items for another male role model, if biological fathers are not as much a figure in their lives.

Bible Verses or Craft Captions to Consider…

 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.  -Exodus 20:12

For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” -Romans 8:15

If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him! -Matthew 7:11

Dad’s toolbox is full of wonderful things! Some of them include…

I am “tied up” with love…Happy Father’s Day!

Dad ROCKS! Thanks for who you are!
