There are many different ideas on the internet and Pinterest about Father’s Day Crafts for kids, but I will show you a project that delights father and a great fun for kids to make. I did those projects with my students at Art fun Studio and they liked it very much. It sufficiently challenging for 3-7 years old to keep them interested and, at the same time easy to make. Here is the result that I am sure will delight any father and found prominent wall space.
Father’s Day Crafts for Kids illustrated steps:
Here are the supplies you need for the project:
- Crayola® Air-Dry Clay Bucket. A small bucket, for example, 2.5 lb will be ok. You can buy an even bigger bucket, 5 lb at Staples for $6. Whatever will be left, you can use for another project.
- Elmer’s Glue-All.
- Artificial Crystals. They are available at any craft store, for example, at Michaels.
- Canvas board. 9x 12 inches.
- Student grade acrylic paint. Available at craft stores and Staples.
- Blow dryer for drying acrylic paint.
With all these art and craft supplies at hand, a child can start working on our Father’s Day Crafts for Kids project.
Step #1. Color the canvas board with acrylic paint. You can mix the colors or use kid’s favorite one. Let child experiment and play with colors. Remember, you can always fix mistakes by wiping out the paint with a wet paper towel while the paint still wet. Try to avoid black color. After background ready, let it dry or use the hair dryer to speed the drying process. With the blow dryer, it takes 2-3 minutes to dry.
Step #2. Take the Air Dry clay roll the strips of approximately of 3-5 inches long. Arrange all strips as letters and words you want on the canvas board. My choice was “Father #1” .
Step #3. Glue all your design to the board.
Step #4. While clay still wet, embeds artificial crystals into the letters. Arrand them as you like.
Step #5. Let it dry overnight. Your masterpiece is ready. You can also place it into a frame if you happens to have one.As you can see, with those simple 5 steps and a little supervision, your child can create a very attractive, very special Father’s Day Craft present.
