Posted By:

Feeling stumped on what to do for Father’s Day this year?  The best gifts are always the simplest and most heartfelt.  We have taken the hard work out of the grueling search by scouring the internet for some fun easy and last minute ideas. Give them a try and let us know how they work out – Happy Father’s Day!

Interview with the Kids

Shoot a sweet video interview with the kids – talk show style!  Dress them up, set up a cute back drop and ask them those “hard hitting” questions about Dad.  Here are a few sample questions to get your wheels turning:

  1. How did you first meet your dad?
  2. What is dad best at?
  3. What is dad worse at?
  4. What is your favorite thing to do with your dad?
  5. What do you love most about your dad?

For more ideas check out this link of some cute kids we interviewed for Ruby’s Studio.

Adventure Date on the Road

If you want to splurge ( just a little) rent a fun car or convertible, hire a sitter and hit the road for a mini adventure! Sometimes mom and dad just need a little refueling.

Movie Tickets

This is so simple and honestly what any dad (and mom) really wants; a little break and some quality “me time.”  Consider giving dad movie tickets and a day off and do it with some flair.  We found the cutest printable from Live Craft Love!  Just make a little popcorn bucket, attach the printable card and add some movie ticket gift cards.  Done!  He will be eternally grateful.

Shrinky Dink Portrait Key Chain

This is a cute craft the kids get to be a part of.  Have the kids draw on shrinky dink paper, cut out the images (making sure to add a hole), bake according to the paper instructions and then attach a key ring.  We love these little hand drawn portraits from Messy Little Monster!

Sidewalk Chalk Portraits

This might be the easiest gift of all.  Create a chalk drawing for dad on the ground and then have your kids pose along with it.  Have the kids help come up with the idea and the message to write.  For an added bonus, print the picture and have it framed.  Click here for some sidewalk chalk photo inspiration from Baby Center.
