This year’s Father’s Day is quickly approaching! Father’s Day is always an important day to have a plan of action. Whether the plan includes a backyard BBQ or a vacation, something is necessary to show Dad that you care. Today I’m sharing a bunch of ideas for Father’s Day. DIY gift ideas, ideas to buy, and trending ideas for this year’s quickly approaching “holiday” that we celebrate.
Father’s Day Ideas
1. DIY Father’s Day Sign
Get a wooden letter “D” (you get get one here HERE), paint it, write this poem, and have the kids and family put their handprint on it. So easy and such a neat idea. By Michelle Ridlon

3. Rolling Ice Chest with Table and Chairs

4. Homemade Father’s Day Card Idea
Father’s Day Card made into a Camera with a Picture in the Lens! How ADORABLE is this? The original idea was seen in Family Fun magazine. This mom spray painted a peanut butter to make the lens of the camera! Don’t have a peanut butter lid handy? Consider spray painting a mason jar lid instead (find them here)!! Cut out the shape of the camera in black cardstcok, add a rhinestone for the flash, and use a chalk pen to decorate the rest of the card. Brilliant and so easy!
