Father’s Day Ideas

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

2. Raised Cot Tent

A raised tent is a great idea for an outdoorsy dad. It’s got more cushion and more comfort than that old tent he’s had in the garage for years.

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!
