All dads are superheroes. To our kids, their Daddys can do anything, fix anything, make anything and we love watching their little eyes twinkle with a love and wonder you only get when you’re 5. So with Father’s Day on Sunday we thought we’d get our littles together to make a quick superhero card complete with a BADGE. As everyone loves a badge, right? We used shrink plastic, which is so much fun to do with kids as it doesn’t take long for the magic to work and they love watching it wriggle and curl.
Hooray for Father’s Day on Sunday! (note slight level of forced enthusiasm) My other half consistently tells me he doesn’t want any effort at all for Father’s day, but then MILKS it on the actual day. It’s like living with Caesar. But he works hard, so I don’t mind. Not much. I only mind a little bit.
It’s nearly Father’s Day, which means that hard working mothers everywhere get an extra day of work. Hoorah! So we decided to make a little personalised mug using Sharpie pens. My 4 year old spends every free moment drawing, she loves it. So I was pleased with myself when I had the idea to decorate a mug for her Daddy. He’ll love it, and it only cost £2. Boom!
If you’re in need of a handmade Father’s Day gift then this salt dough medal does the trick – its our latest vid for Channel Mum. It’s easy enough for little ones to do, cheap to make and will make daddys everywhere feel like a champion on Father’s Day – win win win!
With Father’s Day just around the corner there is still time to muster up a crafty card. This sewing project is a perfect way to give a personalised gift as it captures the handprints of your children. The sewing can be done by an adult or by older children with supervision.
This simple card features appliqued fabric cut to the shape of your child’s had and attached to a card.
