Father’s Day is almost upon us!
I adore presents that kids can make themselves. We already have the Father’s Day coupon book all prepared and ready to go. Then I thought …
How cute is it to have a book full of drawings all about daddy that we can look through when the kids are older?
Here is a DIY Father’s Day mini book that your kid can make. Wait until you see what ideas your children come up with! And don’t worry, I have a free template for you to use to make this homemade gift nice and easy.
How to Make a DIY Father’s Day Mini Book
- Cardstock paper
- Father’s Day Mini Book template
- Coloring pencils
- Print the Father’s Day Mini Book template on cardstock paper. There are a few extra pages at the end in case you want to write your own prompts.
- Cut out each page.
- Have your child draw and color each page.
- Organize the pages in the order you prefer.
- Staple the edge together.
I encourage you not to guide your kid too much. Read the prompt and have them come up with what they want to draw. Prepare to be surprised!
My 3-year-old daughter initially wanted me to help her draw. She is a perfectionist and didn’t want to risk drawing something wrong. I told her that there is no right way to draw the pictures, whatever she wanted to do would be fine.
My 6-year-old son took this Father’s Day mini book very seriously and carefully draw each page. You can tell by the details in his pictures.
Look at all the adorable pictures!
In case you are not sure if you could decipher the pictures years later, you can always write a short description either on the same page or on the opposite side.
I hope you and your kid had fun making the Father’s Day mini book! I certainly had a few laughs watching my kids draw and listening to their ideas.
I can’t wait to show this to them when they are adults!
Happy Father’s Day!
