Quick and easy Father’s Day crafts

You’ve still got time to get crafty for Father’s Day. Remember, your kids are really cute (most of the time), so even if dad gets handprints on a large piece of paper or a scribble on the back of a postcard, he is going to be thrilled.

I am planning on making the dad in our life a variation of handprints on a piece of paper. My friend Noodle made a terrific man bag last year with fabric painted handprints of her and her little one. Her dude rides a motorcycle and is big and burly, he can rock that manbag no question.

My man could too, but I want to make sure he uses whatever we make him so I am going for a more envelope style bag.  As a musician, he is always carrying around lyrics and music so this a way for him to keep it all organised.


Here are some other DIY Dad Day gifts!

  1. Bacon chocolate chip cookies, baby! All Dads love bacon. Fact. Check out this easy recipe from

I know isn’t it awesome, not sure if you can get stuff shipped though having just looked into it some more!



Have you ever thought about creating an ebook or guest authoring on other blogs?
I have a blog based upon on the same information you discuss and would really
like to have you share some stories/information. I know my readers
would enjoy your work. If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an email.



    Thanks so much for the thought! We generally work directly on our own website, but I will ensure this gets passed along! Hope you have a great day!
