Easy Homemade Father’s Day Gift Preparation

Now, let’s break it down step by step:

Prepare Your Canvas

Give each child a paper plate to serve as their canvas. Let them express their love and thoughts through words, by encouraging them to write heartfelt notes to their dad with the markers.

Crafting the Trophies

On a separate piece of construction paper, draw a simple trophy shape. Let the children color and decorate their trophies using markers. Once they’re done decorating, help them cut out their trophies.

Adding Personal Touch with Hand prints

Now, it’s time for some messy fun. Pour some washable paint onto a plate and guide your children to press their palms onto the paint, then onto another piece of construction paper. Allow the handprints to dry, then help your kids cut them out.

Assemble the Craft

With all the pieces ready, it’s time to assemble the Father’s Day craft. Help your children glue their trophies and handprints onto the paper plate around their messages to Dad. You can also encourage them to add more decorations or drawings to fill any empty spaces on the plate.

Let It Dry and Surprise Dad

Once everything is glued down, set the plate aside to dry completely. Once it’s dry, surprise Dad with the beautiful and heartwarming craft.
