25+ Easy Father’s Day Crafts for Toddlers

1. Strong Roots Make Beautiful Leaves Father’s Day Craft

strong roots make beautiful leaves father's day craft

I absolutely love this DIY Father’s Day craft that is super simple for toddlers (and older siblings) to do.

I made this for my husband for his first Father’s Day as a dad of 3, and he loved it!

All you have to do is get a piece of wood like this one and then place a handprint of the dad upside down on the bottom middle of the wood (in brown) and then place the children’s handprints as the tree leaves right side up on the top middle of the wood over the brown handprint. You can use any paint colors but I chose to use blue, green, and light blue. Also, it’s best to go from largest handprint down to smallest for this one.

As an added bonus, you can write (in Sharpie paint pen or in black paint) “Strong roots make beautiful leaves” however you’d like it to be displayed on the wood. If you’d like, you can also seal it with a wood sealer at the end.

Such a cute craft for toddlers to do for Father’s Day!

2. Little Handprints Keychain Father’s Day Craft

This simple craft comes from Project Nursery + Junior, and is absolutely adorable!

It’s a handprint keychain and I swear, dads will absolutely die over how precious this one is.

It’s so simple to make – all you need are shrinky dink sheets, paint, and a sharpie paint pen! Easy peasy!

Head over to Project Nursery + Junior now to get the full instructions.

3. Following in Daddy’s Footsteps Father’s Day Craft

This next Father’s Day craft comes from Crafty Morning and is absolutely perfect for the new dad – seeing as how the baby’s footprint is oh so tiny inside of the daddy’s large shoe print!

This one is super simple too. All you need is white craft paper and paint and you are good to go!

Check out the full details on Crafty Morning.

4. Scribble Mug Father’s Day Craft

This scribble mug is so adorable and absolutely perfect for the toddler in your life.

It’s seriously as simple as applying letter decals, letting your toddler draw all over the mug with these special pens, and then baking it in the oven on 350 for 30 minutes!

5. Love You To Pieces Father’s Day Craft

Love You To Pieces Father's Day Craft

Crafty Morning has yet another adorable DIY for Father’s Day: this cute “love you to pieces” frame customized with puzzle pieces!

This one is easy in all that you need are jumbo popsicle sticks, puzzle pieces, some paint, and a picture of your children (holding a sign saying “love you to pieces” is an added bonus).

This camera is my favorite to have on hand for taking pictures like this one! Makes it so simple and is ready to go in minutes!

You could customize this by using daddy’s favorite colors or maybe the colors of his favorite team – have fun with it!

All you need for this one is some common kitchen ingredients and some rocks and you are set!

7. Mess Free Heart Father’s Day Craft

Mess Free Heart Father's Day Craft

The Best Ideas for Kids has some awesome craft ideas for toddlers, you have to check them out!

I love this mess-free heart craft for Father’s Day because it is just that – mess free! (And not to mention, it’s also super subtle and cute which would make it a great desk accessory for the office).

To make this craft, all you need is a freezer size ziploc bag with heavy craft paper and paint inside, then you will need your toddler to go at it smearing the paint as much as possible!

When done, take the paper out and have it dry while you cut out a heart from another piece of paper. Place the two together and boom, you’re done! Frame to make it extra special. How cute is this?

Head over to The Best Ideas for Kids for full instructions.

8. Footprints Poem Father’s Day Craft

Fun Handprint Art has a super sweet, sentimental Father’s Day craft for you.

This “Footprints” poem is so easy to do (all you need is paint and heavy craft paper) but is so sweet and sentimental that I wouldn’t be surprised if dad sheds a tear with this one!

9. Portrait Father’s Day Craft

Portrait Father's Day Craft

This next craft is darling! It’s from Totschooling and dads everywhere will swoon for this one!

It’s a portrait of daddy made by toddler for Father’s Day. Now I know what you’re thinking – my toddler can’t draw that well! Well, that’s part of the fun!

Sure, 2 year olds may struggle to draw a face, but that’s ok! It’s the thought that counts! 3 and 4 year olds will do great with this one! Just have fun with it.

All you need is heavy craft paper and markers for this one.

You can print the template out by going to Totschooling (and check out other fun crafts there as well!)

10. Salt Dough Handprint Ornament Father’s Day Craft

Salt Dough Handprint Ornament Father's Day Craft

I absolutely love the look of this salt dough handprint ornament for a Father’s Day craft! And talk about simple!

This one is from The Best Ideas for Kids (one of my faves) and can be done in such a short amount of time – but will last practically forever!

This one is super cute for a little girl to do, if you want to use glitter paint. Otherwise, using these paints would be just fine.
