12 Easy DIY Gifts for Father's Day

4 min read

It can be pretty challenging to help your children purchase the perfect Father’s Day gift. Fortunately, we all know that the best surprises don’t always come from the store. Creating a homemade gift can be a fun, family bonding experience and the finished product can become a special token that Dad will love and cherish for years to come.

  1. Backyard Picnic

Give Father’s Day a fun twist and surprise him with a special, outdoor picnic. Even better, move your picnic up onto your Springfree Trampoline to avoid those pesky ants and let dad lay back and relax while you treat him to his favorite snacks. We are sure he will love it!

  1. Instagram Picture Frame

With everything so digital these days, pull out some of those family milestones from the digital screen to a hard copy highlight reel for Dad to enjoy for years to come.

  1. Building Memories Jar

Get your kids to brainstorm fun activities to do with Dad such as quality reading time on your Springfree trampoline. Grab a handful of building blocks (Lego or similar) and write down all the activities the kids have come up with (one for each piece). This will provide Dad and kids ample ideas for activities to do throughout the year.

  1. Luggage Handle Cover

While we might not be traveling too much right now, when the time does finally come to hitting the skies again, Dad will still need something to help him locate his luggage among a sea of other suitcases at the airport. Make a handsome luggage handle cover to embellish his suitcase, making it easy to spot.

  1. Father’s Day Questionnaire

Create a questionnaire that’s all about Dad and have the kids answer it. This is a great gift to come from younger kids who often have sweet and silly answers but on the flip side, with your older kids you might see some real sentimentality come through that might not otherwise. Frame the finished questionnaire for Dad to display and enjoy.

  1. Daddy’s Car Wash Kit

Kids love helping when it’s car washing time (although helping might be a bit strong). So create a car wash kit that keeps all his car-washing supplies in one spot. Next time the car needs washing, Dad and the kids will be able to get right to it.
