Homemade Shaving Cream:
Yeah, beards are totally in these days, but that doesn’t mean Dad couldn’t use a good shave
now and then. Here is a Father’s Day activity that is fun to create—and smells great, too!
And as long as we are talking about shaving cream, you can make dad a marbled trinket dish to put all of his loose change in. If your dad is anything like my dad, that means he has lots of loose change!

DIY Drink Koozie:
Trust me when I say: every time Dad picks up his drink, he’ll think of his kids! This fun Father’s
Day craft is easy, creative & will get lots of use.
If there’s one thing kids are good at, it’s taking selfies. So, harness that talent and help
your kids make a fun scrapbook comprised of close-ups with Dad. It might be one of the
few times you ask them to pick up their phones instead of putting them down.
No matter what you and your kids create this Father’s Day, it’s sure to be unique and
special. After all, it’s not just about making art, but making memories together!
Shrinky Dink Personalized note keychain – this is one of my absolute favorite projects and I usually post this for Mother’s Day. But…dads love these too and tend to keep them forever!
