5 Father’s Day Activities

It’s less than a month until Father’s Day (21st June for those that weren’t too sure) and it’s busy here at Beanstalk Keepsakes. I’ve been super busy since the beginning of May making some gorgeous keepsakes for some very lucky Daddies. But I thought I would share a few things I have come across that you can do with the children so that they can create their own gifts for Dad in the upcoming half term (perfect if you are stuck for activities to do). Nothing says love more that something handmade does it.

So here are 5 Father’s Day Activities to do with the kids this half term….

1) Print off one of our certificates and get the good old poster paint out. This will literally take minute to create and is the perfect excuse for some messy play with paints. With some gorgeous colours to choose from too. Download your free certificate here.

2) Have a go at making your own fingerprint keyrings. Gemma over at Lasting Touch (one of my fellow Keepsake Association members) has a really easy to follow video on YouTube where she shares how to make these pretty cool keyrings. All you need is the keyring blanks, a bit of FIMO in your chosen colour and an oven. Oh and the kids fingers too!

3) How about ordering our Mug print kits and painting your own mug for Dad? The kit comes with a pre-personalised mug, ceramic paint and full instructions. You could place your child’s hand print on them or let them get creative and add their own design.

4) Get yourself down to your local Poundland or Home Bargains store and pick up a small canvas and some poster paint to create a handprint canvas that Dad would be proud of putting up in the office.

5) If you have ordered a gorgeous piece of our keepsake jewellery then you could always be making the prints for those ready to send back to me 🙂

It does seem strange to be thinking of Father’s Day so early on but I think you could have lots of fun with some of these activities next week. You just have to make sure the children don’t spoil the surprise by telling Dad early.
