I think kids have the most fun giving gifts that they have made – especially when it comes to Mother’s and Father’s day. So I have been trying to come up with something different, fun, and useful that my kids could make for their Daddy.
Then one day when they were coloring their lunch bags we were taking on a picnic and it hit me, Artwork Lunch Bags! I pack a lunch for my husband in a little white paper sack every morning, and it seemed like a great way to brighten his day. We usually reuse the same bag for a week, so a dozen should last at least a few months. The kids had fun, and they can’t wait to give their dad something they are proud of – success!
First I let them put their hand prints on some of the bags with washable finger paint.
Then I dug out all of the art supplies in the house and just let the kids have fun.
We colored (this one cracked me up, my son drawing his strong dad)….
Stamped and stuck stickers on all twelve in about an hour. You could even spread it out over a few days, each day doing a different art project. I buy the white lunch bags by the ziplock bags in the grocery store.
What about you, have you made some fun handmade gifts for dad this year? Leave a link in the comments so we can check them out!
