Fun Father’s Day Craft for Kids

Frugal Father's Day Crafts

I can hardly believe Father’s Day 2010 is just one month away! I guess it’s about time for me to start pumping out some fantastically frugal Father’s Day craft ideas that you can make with your kids. I thought I’d start with this fun project that is so incredibly simple children of all ages can do it themselves and even better –> it only cost $1 to make! Yep, a dollar.

What You’ll Need:
– some eager kids
– a wooden frame (we got ours for $1 at Michael’s)
– markers
– a picture of the kids (you get extra points if Dad is in it too)
– foam scrapbooking stickers (optional)

Simple DIY Father's Day Craft

We made these after nap time, Happy & Sweet designed their own frames and when they were done borrowed some of my scrapbooking stickers to add as embellishments. I was so thrilled with how these turned out and I just know Dad will be too :)

If you make one of these for you Dad, send us a pic or tell us all about it. Happy & Sweet will be so proud.

      Yay! So glad you liked it and so touched to know you’re still reading Kids Stuff World. You were one of the very first people I “met” when I started blogging. Making friendships like yours is what it’s all about :)

      Amy, your site is brilliant! Another new favorite of mine (I’ve found some really awesome sites this week, now if I could just find the time to keep up with all of them) I’m headed your way when I get done answering comments to give you some comment love of your very own :)

    Did you tell you hubs NOT TO look at this post!??? He will LOVE his made-with-love GIFT!!! You are really working ahead… I can’t even begin to THINK about dad’s day yet! :):)

      You’re so funny – my hubs NEVER reads my site :( He’s way too occupied with fishing shows and European soccer matches to bother with some fru fru girl site like this. As far as being ahead of the game, don’t I wish. We gave him these for his birthday a few weeks ago. I haven’t begun to think about Father’s Day here yet either …

    Knowing about this is also in particular beneficial if your generator
    breaks down, but generally, with one thing as straightforward
    and as trustworthy as that, the odds of
    that happening are pretty low in the finish of the day.
    ‘This report makes it clear that our efforts to clean up the
    trucks and buses on our roads and highways also help us in the fight
    against climate change. The design of Kubota tractors also means
    that the radiator is positioned in the middle of
    the tractor, rather than at the front as with some other manufacturers.
