I had so much fun creating this list of DIY gifts for fathers that young kids can make easily, with some assistance of course. I chose ideas that would be fun for kids to make and their dad will also love.
DIY gifts are one of the best gifts in my books- for one, they make the recipient feel special and two, it gives the gift giver the satisfaction of knowing that something they made with their hands brought the recipient so much joy.
So, if you wanted to ditch the supermarket aisles,, this time around, and help your kids create a totally unique gift for their dad you will find some cool ideas here in this list.
Use them for Father’s Day or any other occasion when you want to make him feel like a super-dad!!
DIY Gifts for Dad from Kids
Here are some handpicked ideas that are easy to follow and fun to look at. He will cherish these adorable gifts forever.
DIY Father’s Day Treat
I love this idea! I am guessing you can pretty much choose any candy bag that he likes for this one. I am happy that Mariel from oneshetwoshe has also included the cut out printable too which makes your job as easy as it can be.
And because it so easy you can make these with toddlers and kids of most ages.
Super Dad Wrapper
This one is a genius. Shellie and trendymami shows you not just one idea but two! The superhero chocolate wrapper and a custom mug that your kids can personalize for their dad.
The cool thing about this affordable idea is that you can customize the face cut out to how your hubby looks… mustache, beard, etc. And your kids can draw a picture or write a cute text on the mug.
Speaking of a chocolate bar and printable to go along with it, here is another idea that stood out to me.
This one proves that an impressive DIY does not have to take hours. Check out the details at aplusteachingresources.
Dad’s Toolbox Printable
Sometimes something as easy as a printable gift tag can make your DIY stand out even more. I love the idea. Cheryl at momandmunchkins shows you different ways you can use this tag.
Send A Hug Craft
Is the dad traveling and not home for Father’s Day? If yes, here is a nice idea that will make him feel appreciated and loved. The send a hug craft is a thoughtful idea for the dad who has to travel often for work and misses his kids dearly.

If you guys spend a lot of time watching Disney+ with your kids, then you will recognize this cute Yoda! Sam at simpleeverydaymom gives you all the steps in detail and she also included a printable template to make the job easier.
It folds like a card so the kids can write a cute ‘Yoda best dad’ message inside.
Star Wars Inspired Card
Another one of Star Wars-inspired craft from Sam at simpleeverydaymom that is perfect for a guy who is a big fan of the series.
The best part is it looks difficult to make but you will be happy to know a template is included to simplify things.
Father’s Day Questionnaire
Such a unique idea. It does not involve scissors, glue, etc… etc…
This easy, quick, and cheap idea is very thoughtful, and depending on the kid’s responses may make you all laugh hard.
She has other similar printable questionnaires too for grandparents, etc. that I am sure the recipient would love and cherish. Check it out at thewildwest3.
The shirt card is a sweet gift that the dad would love to display in his office cubicle.

The paperweight idea is genius. It can be decorated with anything that kids desire, and hubby can use it at work or his home office. Check it out at ottawamommyclub.
Washi Tape Candy Jar
I am a big fan of washi tape and do not even get me started on Mason jars- I am definitely obsessed with them. But I never thought of combining these two to create something.
The idea is definitely worth checking. You can find step by step details at janinehuldie.
