Examples of the 555 Father’s Day Projects include:

  1. Make Dad a Coin Tray: Dads always need a place for spare change. Kids can make dads a special coin tray made out of crayola’s model magic. Children just need to mold the tray into a coin tray and the next day it is ready for use. Don’t forget to personalize the coin tray.
  2. Create a Crafty Tie Holder: Father’s day is a great time for making a tie. Its perfect for all of those past ties you gave dad for father’s day over the years! Kids can make this special tie holder out of a wire hanger, and felt. This gift looks great in a closet, and will remind dad every day how much his children love him.
  3. Craft a Father’s Day Fish Pen Holder: Is dad an outdoor type of guy? If so, the fish pen holder is really adorable. Kids can cut out all types of colorful shapes of dish and other critters. A drab pen holder can become so much more exciting when it was decorated by kids. This is one fish that did not get away!
  4. Design a Key Holder for Dad: Looking for the perfect father’s day craft for school age kids? A ruler, lanyard hooks and ribbon can be transformed into a great key holder. You can also use a mini Bowdabra to make a simple bow to attach to the hanger of the key holder.
  5. Construct #1 Dad and #1 Son T-Shirts: Not much is cuter than seeing a dad and his son wearing matching T-shirts. Kids can make crafty shirts that are personalized for their beloved dads. All you need to get started is some blank T-shirts, fabric and fabric paint.
